While married to Gwyneth Paltrow – or rather, while consciously coupled with her, I suppose, since they’re not actually divorced – Chris Martin followed a strict vegetarian diet. One would think that a grown man could choose which foods he eats, but Goop runs a tight ship and is not into animal products, apparently.
Well, worry no more – Chris changed his diet for “various reasons” and enjoys a bit of fish and whatnot now that he’s on his own… and he won’t apologize for it!
From BBC Radio 2 (via Radar Online):
“I felt like you should only eat something that you would be able to kill,” the Coldplay singer explained to BBC Radio 2. “I don’t know why on earth we’re talking about this. I have got to stop talking or there’ll be some sort of headline. Could you kill a fish? I wouldn’t like it but I probably could, so I’ll eat a fish . . . or a giraffe.”
“My daughter has been a vegetarian since she was born,” he revealed. “So, I keep getting tempted to go back, but I don’t eat very much meat.”
I’m a bit of a free spirit and think people should eat whatever they want (and not eat whatever they don’t). It’s all good – the world is a big place, food is plentiful in most places and we’re spoiled for choice, especially in the Western world. Live it up! However, I am a staunch omnivore and haaaaate preachy vegetarians/vegans. Like, chill with your soy and tofu and enjoy it, but I’mma have this steak and you can shut up if you don’t like it.
Also, way to make a child vegetarian because that’s YOUR preference. That’s one of the shittiest things you can do as a parent, I think. No wonder her kids always look so malnourished. And no, I’m not saying you can’t be healthy when you’re a vegetarian or vegan, but children need certain nutrients, sorry.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin decided to “consciously uncouple” from their nearly decade-long marriage just a few short months ago, and while there were rumours of cheating on both sides, the pair have remained pretty close. So close, in fact, that it seems like they may just give their relationship another shot.
From Radar Online:
“Chris still lives with her, they are amazingly lovey-dovey together and she still wears her wedding ring,” a source tells the paper of the pair, who share a $14 million Malibu mansion. “They may have consciously uncoupled a few months ago – but they seem to be recoupling now. No one will be surprised if they get back together.”
Friends say the break-up actually allowed the pair to breathe a little, and enjoy each other’s company without expectations.
“It’s true they had problems but in the weirdest way this ‘conscious uncoupling’ situation has relieved the pressure on them,” explains the insider.
Well, that’s that, I suppose. Given the sound of Coldplay‘s new album, Chris was having some major emo drama over their split, so it’s not really all that surprising. That, combined with Gwyneth’s terror over tarnishing her pristine (as she sees it) reputation, means this is a reunion that’s most likely on.

Look, One Direction has really catchy songs, okay? Just starting to type this article, I have ‘Story of My Life’ stuck in my head (and if you’ve ever heard it before, you probably do too, now) and I’m not ashamed to say I have the latest album in my iTunes. I’ve never listened to it, but I do own it and maybe I will one day! So what, who cares? Even Chris Martin loves them!
Here’s what the Coldplay frontman told BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe:
“I think One Direction are the biggest band in the world, their songs are great. I’m saying One Direction are brilliant and I’m not kidding.
“You know why? Because their songs are really good and I don’t think that any of them are going to go solo. I think they appreciate their chemistry from watching their movie… Harry [Styles] has come to a couple of our shows, I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry.”
Ha! He also claimed that he started questioning her sexuality because he was enamoured with Harry’s hair. Hilarious – especially because I still don’t understand how anyone finds Harry Styles remotely attractive, but perhaps I’m not the right audience. I still like the songs, though! Here – now you can partake with me (I love to torture you!!!):

Look, I know the source is somewhat wonky on this one, but is it really so hard to believe that Gwyneth Paltrow is being insufferable about her perfectly orchestrated divorce announcement? She and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling” last month, and apparently Goopy hasn’t shut up about it since because she thinks she did so brilliantly with it.
From Radar Online:
“’Conscious uncoupling’ has become a joke among Gwyneth’s friend,” a source close to the 41-year-old Country Strong star told Radar.
“All she’s doing is bragging about how peaceful her divorce is and how she and Chris planned it so perfectly that it is hardly disrupting their lives.”
“Gwyneth has always thought she had the most perfect life and even though she’s getting a divorce and both of them are getting bad press she doesn’t care,” the source told Radar.
“She has become insufferable saying how happy she is with the way everything is evolving,” the source told Radar.
“It’s so ridiculous to listen to her talk as if nothing bad is going on at all for her. But Gwyneth has always had a protected privileged life and this is no different.”
LOL, yeah, this actually sounds 100% legit. Now, I wonder how she’ll gracefully get out of that GOOP financial trouble…

From Busines Standard:
Chris Martin reportedly had an affair with a ‘Saturday Night Live’ assistant while he was married to Gwyneth Paltrow, it has been revealed.
According to the staff of NBC, the 37-year-old Coldplay rocker, who appeared on the show in 2011, was spotted openly flirting with a backstage woman at a post show after-party, the New York Post reported.
The article goes on to say that Martin has also denied having an affair with actress Kate Bosworth.
AND rumors abound that Gwyneth was cheating too.
What a mess.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin released the bougiest divorce announcement in history last week, and ol’ Goop has been working hard to keep it classy throughout this ordeal. Turns out, there’s a reason for that: she’s terrified that her reputation will be tarnished if things get ugly.
Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ … this is NOT a separation. They are definitely getting divorced. But both are concerned about serious PR damage if the divorce turns ugly, and they don’t want to open the door to media reports about them straying from the marriage as well as other issues.
The concern … even if the case doesn’t go to trial … any allegation put down in legal docs could end up getting leaked … and both Gwyneth and Chris agree … that’s the worst case scenario for both of them.
We’re told the divorce will be relatively quick and there are no apparent conflicts. They will not fight over money and they won’t fight over custody.
Well, that’s nice. To be honest, I don’t think an ugly divorce benefits anyone – especially not the kids. While Gwyn’s motivation might be self-preservation of her “brand”, I think keeping things cordial is best for everyone, eh?
