Gwyneth Paltrow is still a fan of Coldplay, even though her daughter Apple Martin prefers Taylor Swift!
The Oscar Winner did an interview and talked all about her musical relationship to her ex Chris Martin‘s band, versus her kid’s. For the “My Favorite Song” segment in the SiriusXm radio interview, she noted hat the band’s track Everything’s Not Lost brought her comfort after her father’s death even before she met the Brit. She explained:
“He wrote this song before I met him, and I think another reason it’s sad for me is my father had just died when this album came out, and we used to listen to it kind of on repeat. This album was kind of getting my brother and I through that death.”
Gwyneth also dished about Chris Martin’s stellar songwriting capabilities:
“This one time I was making dinner … and the kids were in bed, and he was telling me that someone had asked him to write a song for somebody else. Then all of a sudden he got a really weird look in his eye and he was like ‘I’ll be right back,’ and he went up to the piano and literally three to five minutes later he said, ‘Will you come up and listen to this?’ He had written this song called Paradise, from beginning to end, with all the lyrics.”
However, like kids do, Chris and Gwyneth’s kids exercise their own musical tastes. Like everyone else in the world, Apple is a TOTAL Taylor Swift fan, And Gwyn can hang with Tay:
“She’s very savvy, she keeps her clothes on, she writes her music, she has good values. She’s a good girl.”
Agreed. Though I’m sure Chris Martin doesn’t exactly like that news. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, everyone!
