Man Candy Monday: Chris Martin

This week's Man Candy Monday is a bit of a rock star. I'm inspired to feature Chris Martin after seeing Coldplay live last week at the Hollywood Bowl. (Side note: Amazing show! Full recap tomorrow.) We all know his music, his wife Gwyneth Paltrow, and his celebrity bffs Jay-Z and Beyonce, but how much do we know about him? Let's learn more!


Name

Born
March 2, 1977

From
Exeter, Devon, England, UK

Relationship Status
Married to Gwyneth Paltrow

Interesting Facts
-Is a vegetarian.
-Met wife Gwyneth at a Coldplay concert in 2002.
-Learned how to sing "The Scientist" backwards for the music video.
-Plays piano and guitar.
-Graduated from University College London with First Class honors in Greek and Latin.
-Doesn't smoke or drink.

Coldplay Albums
-Parachutes
-A Rush of Blood to the Head
-X&Y

So are you as big of a fan as I am? I think he's just adorable. AND he's the nicest guy. So friendly during interviews and after he performs each song, thanks the crowd. Plus he smiles throughout his concerts and is genuinely happy to do what he does. It's so refreshing.


Who are you crushing on thios week? Link up and show us your Man Candy Monday pick!

He's cute! He's got something clumsy going on too which makes him somewhat attractive LOL

He's only two years older than me?! I thought he was much older. That Scientist fact is pretty cool! I'm not a huge Coldplay fan anymore. I was in college when they first came out, but they lost me at Viva La Vida. I still really want to see them in concert and Trouble is one of my all time favorite songs. Good choice! Can't wait to read your review!

He's sometimes good looking. Not always for me. Now... If I have one request (maybe you've already posted on him? If you have please send me the link) is Jeffrey Donovan. I def, def HEART HIM! He's so stinkin' hot! xoxo A-

Not only is he gorgeous, but he could also sing me to sleep every night with his voice! I love Coldplay so much!

Melissa Blake said...

Love Chris Martin! Still a bit bizarre that he and Gwyneth got together! My favorite song is "Yellow".
