Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has compared negative band criticism to criticism experienced by the likes of football teams, such as Manchester United.
The 'Yellow' singer has spoken out about how he finds the massive success of sports teams and the constant booing that some teams experience, such as Man U, something that he and the band can relate to.
Chris told The Sun: "You can very easily become infected by the minority negative opinion," he confessed.
"I was talking to my dad about Manchester United - the most popular football team in the world - and when they show up at West Ham they get booed."
"I was thinking, 'Well, it's the same for us."
Hmmm, minus the constant 'short-wearing' and running up and down a pitch, eh Chris??
When asked how the singer copes with negative criticism, Chris added that it's not possible to please everyone, saying: "There comes a point where you just accept that whatever you do, someone will like or hate it, so it's extremely liberating," he continued.
"We are incredibly blessed that we are - 12 years in - allowed to make whatever we want to make. That's extraordinary. Even in the film world you can't do that. Only a few people can do that."
Meanwhile, Coldplay and new BFF Rihanna have unveiled an acoustic version of their recent collaborative track 'Princess Of China'.
