Now that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are consciously uncoupled, who will he couple with next? How about One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles?
The Coldplay frontman says he’s a huge fan of the boy band One Direction — and Styles in particular. “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,” he told the BBC (via E!).
Chris doesn’t just admire their musical prowess and comradeship: He also, like all humans with a pulse, thinks Harry Styles is cute as all get out. “Hehas come to a couple of our shows. I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry. I can’t remember — I was too enamored with his haircut. I was like this: ‘I was pretty sure I was a straight guy before.’ I was having a hot flush,” he said.
Good to know that Harry Styles’ stupid adorable floppiness works on adults who should be even less susceptible than I. However, Chris Martin does have a 10-year-old daughter, so he’d better be discreet about his affection or he might find himself in a Tumblr feud with Apple.
