Playing Chris Martin Says Beyonce Turned Down One of His Songs Because She Thought It Was 'Awful'

Chris Martin takes Beyonce's opinion very seriously.

The Coldplay frontman admits in the newest issue of Rolling Stone magazine that Jay Z's wife is very honest with him when it comes to music. Martin recalls when he had Beyonce listen to a track called "Hook Up," and she quickly turned it down. "In the sweetest possible way: She told me, 'I really like you -- but this is awful,'" he said.

Clearly Martin did not take the remark personally as he just performed with Beyonce at Sunday's Super Bowl 50 and she also agreed to sing on Coldplay's new song, "Hymn for the Weekend."

She even told ET exclusively that the best part about the halftime show was to "see Coldplay."

The 38-year-old singer also opened up to the music magazine about another woman in his life, hisex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow. "I have a very wonderful separation-divorce," he said. "It's a divorce – but it's a weird one."

He's also not too keen on the word divorce itself. "I don't think about that word very often," Martin added. "I don't see it that way. I see it as more like you meet someone, you have some time together and things just move through."
