Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin, who has been a proactive advocate for LGBTQ rights, recently admitted that he was homophobic while discovering his sexuality during his teenage. During an interaction with Rolling Stone, Chris mentioned that when he was in boarding school, he used to bounce a bit while walking. “I was also very homophobic because I was like, ‘If I’m gay, I’m completely f–ked for eternity’ and I was a kid discovering sexuality,” he said. 

Talking about his school life, the 42-year-old singer-songwriter said that other kids at school would constantly tease him and make fun of him. They would tell him that he was gay, in a very aggressive and inappropriate manner. “It was weird for me for a few years,” he recalled. While he did admit that at the time he did not know for certain if he was homosexual or not, he was too scared to find out because he felt like it was wrong to be gay.

Martin mentioned that it while the feeling did make him extremely uncomfortable for a couple of years, he eventually got over it and stopped caring about people’s assumption. “I was like, ‘Yeah so what?’ and then it all just stopped overnight,” he said. As he got a bit more exposed to the world outside and realised that a lot of the icons he looked up to were gay, all the teasing and bullying stopped bothering him. The singer shares two children with his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow and is currently dating actress Dakota Johnson.
