Chris Martin

It's been almost two weeks since the death of Chester Bennington – the frontman of one of the noughties' biggest rock bands.

And as the music industry attempts to come to terms with his tragic passing by suicide, fellow artists have wasted no time paying tribute to the man responsible for some of the great rock anthems of recent years, including In the End, Numb and Crawling.

Acknowledging the 41-year-old's sudden death, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, played a cover of Numb at the MetLife stadium this week.

However, the footage, which has amassed 42,000 views since its upload yesterday, has been met with considerable negativity from fans who have implied that the cover fell short of expectations.

"If Chester was alive, and this was a normal cover, everyone would say the truth: what an horrible cover," wrote one YouTube user.

"WTF is this? This is a disgrace," wrote another. "Stick to what you're good at, Chris Martin. First you butchered George Michael's song and now you had to butchered Linkin Park song. SMFH."

Acknowledging the backlash, some members of the public rushed to Chris Martin's defence, with one writing: "It wasn't necessarily a bad cover; it was fine, actually."

"However, hearing Chris Martin cover Chester's song, along with other artists, just reminds everyone how we're never going to hear Chester's massive voice ever again," they reasoned.

"Chris took time to learn this to pay respect to a well respected singer, why the f*ck are you complaining?" argued another. "It's not supposed to be the best cover ever, it's supposed to be a tribute."

Chris Martin has really been making the most of his time in Ireland.

From a sold out performance at Croke Park, to a training session with Conor McGregor's coach, the Coldplay frontman has really embraced the Irish spirit.

Over the last few days, the British singer has been spotted around the capital, taking selfies with fans and just being an absolute gent really.

Last night, the 40-year-old popped into the International Bar where he met fan, Jamie Harrington, who was working behind the bar at the time.

During their friendly chat, Jamie told Chris how he paid a tout €200 for his Coldplay ticket after he failed to secure one through general sale.

The story clearly struck a chord with the singer, who upon hearing the price of the ticket, offered to refund Jamie €50.00.

As if we need another reason to love him.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have finally wrapped up the smoothest celebrity marital breakup of all time as the pair are now officially divorced.

People magazine has reported that the pair of conscious uncouplers reached a divorce settlement back in May and on Thursday had their divorce finalised by an LA judge.

Two years after they first announced their split, the former couple have made a written agreement regarding their property and child support and have decided that neither of them will ever receive spousal support from the other.

The Coldplay frontman and lifestyle guru were married for 10 years and have remained close despite their breakup for the sake of their two children Apple and Moses.

During a recent interview in Cannes, Gwyneth admitted that while their split had been “difficult” she is glad they have managed to work together for their kids.

She said: "As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that's quite tough on a personal level."

Just when you thought your sixth class confirmation grin was the worst thing ever captured on camera, up pops Chris Martin and his incredibly unfortunate Glastonbury growl.

That's right; Chris Martin – he who can do no wrong – did something wrong.

He only went and got super passionate during his set and accidentally made it look like he was being reeled in by an invisible fish hook

And yet despite this, the Coldplay frontman soldiered on and gave an incredible performance at one of the year's most highly-anticipated music festivals.

But, the internet still couldn't let him off – just this once – and instead went to TOWN on poor ol' Chris and his bandy-looking, sideways mouth.

Doing what any upstanding millennial would do, people rushed to share the snap on social media while insisting they wouldn't sleep for weeks after this one.

Ladies, we give you Chris Martin…

Coldplay have become the kings of the music festival circuit, and this year's Glastonbury was NO exception. This was Coldplay's fourth time headlining the 45 year old music festival, and it was an extra special gig for the band's front man.

Proud dad Chris Martin was joined on stage by his two gorgeous blond children, Apple and Moses, while their Mother Gwyneth Paltrow watched in the wings.

The kiddies, along with two of their cousins, sang back up during the song Up and Up, and the crowd loved every second of this family affair. Maintaining music festival tradition, the young vocalists wore wellies and warm clothes on the Pyramid shaped stage. 

Chris Martin, 39, and Gwyneth Paltrow,43, filed for divorce in 2015, with the final papers being signed just last month. The pair have been making headlines due to their particularly civilised split, remaining great friends,and are raising their children together.

It's pretty safe to say that carpool karaoke with top name celebrities is an ingenious concept for a chat show segment, especially when James Corden is involved. 

After his gas trip with Adele around London, he has now taken Coldplay's Chris Martin out for a bit of a spin. 

Well not a spin per say, he's actually giving Chris a lift to his hotly anticipated Superbowl performance next week (for the purposes of the video anyway). 

While Justin Bieber will always be our favourite episode of carpool karaoke followed closely by One Direction, this one is definitely up there. 

The segments form part of James' hit US show, the Late Late Show with James Corden

Watch Chris and James chat and have a little sing along in another hilarious edition:

The celebs aren't having the best of weeks… especially in the lead up to Christmas.

Chris Martin arrived back in LA, after doing a number of appearances in Europe, to find out that he is being sued by a photographer who is claiming the singer ran him down with his Jeep. 

According to TMZ, photographer Richard Terry is stating that Chris intentionally hit him with his car while leaving a restaurant about a year ago. 

The incident was apparently caught on camera by another photographer who was standing across the street at the time.

Richard said that he was outside an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica when he saw Mr Martin and ew-wife Gwyneth Palthrow leaving and getting into a Jeep.

He then states that the Coldplay frontman deliberately turned his car's wheel abruptly to the right, hitting Mr Terry on the path.

In his lawsuit, the pap claims that Chris has "a significant history of repeated and ongoing violent acts against entertainment news people."

He also says that he was upset the rocker didn't stop to see if he was OK.

Well, we don't know if this has ever been done before, but we're sure Blue Ivy is used to the recording studio since her mother is Queen Bey, right?! 

Chris Martin has a very special guest on his new album, which will be released on December 4. Three-year-old Blue Ivy is collaborating with Coldplay on their song, A Head Full Of Dreams. How a three-year-old can collaborate, we don't know, but baby Blue isn't the only unexpected guest to sing on the new track. 

Chris has also asked Gwyneth Paltrow, his ex-wife, to sing alongside Blue. What a combination, huh?!

The band have already revealed that artists such as Noel Gallagher, Beyoncé and Tove Lo are featuring in the new album, but we just didn't expect Gwyneth and Blue.

“Everyone who got asked to sing on our album has an important part in our lives,” Chris explained to The Wall Street Journal.

“I don’t want to get too hippie, but what I’m trying to learn in my life is the value of every human. Inclusiveness is the key thing.” 

OK, Chris, whatever you say!

She's had a long-term relationship with Nicholas Hoult and an on-off fling with Chris Martin, but lately Jennifer Lawrence has been very single indeed.

The actress admitted to Vogue this week that her sex life is far from exciting – in fact, it's been pretty non-existent.

"No one ever asks me out," Jennifer laments during a tour of her apartment for the magazine.

"I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it's coming from, I know they're trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings."

As for her bed, the actress jokingly refers to it as "where the magic happens," before getting honest: "Literally zero magic has happened in here. Cheers to my hymen growing back!" 

Ah. Thanks for clearing that up, Jen.

The Oscar-winning star says her high-profile status has been a huge barrier in getting to meet men who are genuinely interested in her.

"I'm just a girl who wants you to be nice to me," she says of her perfect man.

"I am straight as an arrow. I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am."

Speaking about former boyfriends who didn't make the cut, Jen refers to one man who, although he was "sexy," was also full of mind games.

"I didn't like how he made me feel," she admits.

"When someone makes you insecure, it's strangely exhilarating because you keep trying to fight for that validation."

After splitting from her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult last year, J-Law began dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

Although the pair were spotted on various dates over a nine-month period, things have since cooled off, and Chris is now dating actress Anabelle Wallis.

Hopefully Jen's future man is en route back Baghdad as we speak…

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have kept their new relationships low-key since splitting in April 2014, but the pair seem to finally be ready to openly move on.

Just a few short weeks after Gwyneth made it Instagram-official with her new beau, Chris has now made a similar show of affection with actress Annabelle Wallis.

Following months of speculation about his on-off romance with A-lister Jennifer Lawrence, the Coldplay frontman finally made it clear where his attention lay during a stroll in Paris over the weekend.

Father-of-two Chris was snapped walking through the French capital with Annabelle as the two kissed and danced, seemingly oblivious to photographers.

Dressed in a pair of black dungarees over a grey polo-necked winter knit, Peaky Blinders star Annabelle looked cosy and casual as she walked with her new squeeze.

Rumours of a romance for the pair first kicked off back in August when they were pictured checking into a New York hotel together, each carrying an overnight bag.

And after their intimate weekend in Paris it's clear Chris has well and truly left behind any feelings he may have had for Jennifer.

Having filed for divorce six months ago, Gwyneth seems equally content with TV producer boyfriend Brad Falchuk – indeed, she happily posed for a picture with him last month at the premiere of his show Scream Queens.

"My date and I," Brad captioned the snap, which shows the pair smiling happily for the camera.

It's a significant moment in any relationship, the first time you include your new beau in one of your Instagram snaps. 

And in the case of celebrities, of course, the first inclusion of a new partner on IG carries even more weight, as it will essentially end up on every corner of the Internet. 

It doesn't seem like Gwyneth Paltrow cares though as her and her new boyfriend, Glee producer Brad Falchuk, decided to post the cutest picture together on the social networking site. 

Now these two were first linked together in August 2014, when Gwyneth first split from Chris Martin, and very steamy photos were taken while the pair were away together. 

But it was thought to have fizzled out after they were never seen in public together again. 

Last night, at the premiere of Scream Queens – which Brad co-created – Mr Falchuk posted a semi-blurry snap with Gwyneth on his account, captioned, "My date and I."

How cute!

In the meantime, Ms Paltrow posted a shot with Scream Queens actor Nick Jonas: “My kids might be #jealous about this sighting,” she wrote.

We can see things heating up in this new relationship!

And… it's off again!

We really can't keep up with J-Law and 38-year-old Chris Martin's relationship. But then it seems, neither can they.

It was reported during early summer that the pair split up, but a few weeks later they were caught looking quite cosy when they spent the July 4 weekend together in New York.

In the last week however, after Jennifer, 25, has celebrated her birthday without her man by her side. Now multiple sources told US website People, that the couple are definitely NOT together right now. 

According to People, the Oscar-winning actress got "tired of Chris being so noncommittal."

The famous pair both have very busy lives which may have triggered the split. 

"Chris doesn't really want the relationship to end, but he needs to be flexible so he can see his family as much as possible with his own work schedule," says a source.

"He's crazy about Jen but wants to keep his own schedule and be able to do what he wants when he wants to do it." 

We love this Hollywood couple (despite the numerous break-ups) and hope they patch everything up (again) sometime soon. 

"They still care about each other, so I can't say the romance is completely over", added the People source. 

We can only wait and see we guess!
