Now someone has turned it into Bono "hating" Chris Martin. Why do people blow things up more than need be.
I created a blog stating that Bono and Martin really are lovers and had a little spat that day. But later, they made up in a way that only two rock stars know how. Gwyneth videotaped.

A whole lot of fuss about nothing...news must have been slow that day. Chris Martin should thank Bono for giving him some free publicity.

I'm surprised you can't say "wanker" on air in the UK.

If I ever go there, I'll be sure and say wanker as much as possible. Wanker, wanker, wanker.

Notice they don't even write that Bono said he apologised, said he was joking, complemented Martin, and even went on to say he spent New Years with him at a party in Scotland. What's bad when this happens is that the story then gets regurgitated and spun off to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who thinks they're a journalist without getting the facts straight. The same thing happened to Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn recently.


I can't believe there are that many gullible people out there that think Bono was being really serious....reminds me of the game "Telephone" when I was young...one kid tells the person next to him a phrase ...by the time you get 20 or so people down the line the original phrase was completely changed

The ppl over on at Coldplaying forum aren't even taking this seriously, and they are devoted followers of the Church of Christ Martin.

The media are probably only making a big deal out of this whole thing because Bono isn't known for saying stuff like this. It may have been a "joke", but I really can't see why Bono would find it so funny to call someone who has openly been a huge U2 fan a "wanker" and a "dysfunctional cretin" on air, even if he then goes on to say good stuff about him.

maybe they should pay more attention to the genius and macca reference. who cares if he made a tongue in cheek joke about the wanker stuff. he called chris martin a genius people and no I do not think he was joking. I do not get the coldplaybashing in here it is so pathetic. Chris martin has allways expressed his admiration, his love and affection towards u2. Never said a bad thing about them. Who can blame him he wants the topspot, whatelse is there to accomplish for this band. It is amazing how big they have become in such a relatively short period of time.

I don't why people here hate Chris Martin and CP , they don't brag unlike say Oasis and have written more than two good songs (ahem Oasis).

While Chris is a bit of a muppet, he's inoffensive and if you met in him real life would be a pretty likeable chap.

I think some people here are simply insecure and perceive CP as a threat to U2 (an irrational idea, I know) and feel that they have to personally 'defend' their band by indulging in some mindlessly bashing, of a band that shows unreasonable deference to U2.

Why don't people bash the Killers instead? After all Brandon did say U2 were antiquated.

I think the CP bashers here are cut from much the same cloth as the U2 bashers, who didn't like the threat U2 presented to their true "sex, drugs & rock n roll" bands.

Oh really? Then why did I hear CM say that his voice was as good as Bono's during War/UF era's now and that he'll surely will beat him someday.

I dislike coldplay because I can't stand their singer. He's arrogant and has a whiny voice that my ears do not appreciate.

This is so stupid. I watched the video of the interview before I read this and I honestly can't believe this thread could even last this long.

I've come to believe the press relies heavily on the public generally being idiots to keep their industry alive.

I've watched the interview, and I've got a few clear things:

1.-Bono was just joking, he didn't want to say: oh, I admire him very much. He just wanted to make it more interesting. Maybe it wasn't the best of choices, but he was laughing all the time.

2.-The interviewer started the programme asking them if they pee in the shower, which is quite a rude and shocking question, and established clearly that it wasn't to be the most ellegant conversation in the media.

3.- I can't understand why she judged it necessary to apologise on behalf of Bono, instead of apologising on her own behalf, as she was the one who established the low level conversation, she is the conductor of the programme.

4.- She is very intelligent, she used the incident very well on her own benefit.

5.- I've never seen British newspapers so worried when it's Bono or U2 who are insulted in public.


I have nothing against Chris Martin, I like his voice when he's singing and I also like some Coldplay songs, although I'm not a fan I don't understand why so many people here bash him, but I can't either understand why so many people bash and hate Bono here and out of this site, it must be something you can't avoid when you¡re a celebrity.

The audio is easy to find online and on youtube, people. Bono was clearly joking, though it's not obvious if you only quote the wanker line and not the whole conversation! (He also called Martin a disfunctional cretin).

In truth, and all joking aside, however, Chris Martin is indeed a major wanker...and a cretin.

So firstly it’s totally out of character, and it’s someone that by all other reports he gets along with very well, a guy who openly idolizes him. Not only that, but, despite what all the utterly ridiculous Martin/Coldplay bashers around here like to say, Chris Martin is well known as a really, really nice guy (opposite of wanker), a clean living, highly ambitious guy (opposite of dysfunctional) and very intelligent (opposite of a cretin). Stupid for Bono not to realise that what he was saying could be so easily isolated and headlined, but he probably assumed everyone had the same opinion of Martin, so it would be like someone saying “oh yeah, Johnny Depp, great actor, obviously really ugly though”, where no-one would take that as anything other than a joke.
Well, exactly. I was trying to remember if Bono had ever dissed another performer over the years, and I came up empty. That's just not who he is.

I'm quite disappointed, though. I thought the British had a better sense of humour than this, lol.

On the bright side, it's knocked that ridiculous tax haven story off the front page.
