There's no battle of the bands between Coldplay and One Direction. In fact, Chris Martin has a business proposition for Harry Styles.
The 38-year-old frontman and his fellow band member, Jonny Buckland, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and when the host hailed Coldplay as being the the biggest group in the world, they joked that she must be mistaking them for One Direction.
It quickly became clear that the guys were Directioners. "I'm a big fan of Harry’s," Martin admitted. "He's lovely."
He's such a fan that Martin joked that he wanted to go into business with the 21-year-old musician. "I wanted to open a barbershop with him called Hairy Styles, but he wouldn't," he quipped. "He doesn’t call me back."
"You have gone through a lot and it seems like you're just in a better place," DeGeneres pointed out. "How did you move through some of the tough times?"
"I don’t think it’s going through a lot in terms of on the world scale," Martin replied. "I think if you’re lucky enough to be in a band with your best friends and you look at the world in the right way, than you understand that everything that’s happening to you can be alchemized. Which is an English word."
DeGeneres isn't the only one to call out Martin's positive disposition. During his interview with Australia's 2DayFM's Rove and Sam, the rocker said he was "happy to be alive" after the year he's had. "That may sound a little simple but I suddenly feel very grateful," he told the radio hosts. "If it's coming across then that's great to hear."
