Chris Martin Talks Gwyneth Paltrow And Coldplay In New Interview

Chris Martin is breaking his silence regarding his "conscious uncoupling" from Gwyneth Paltrow. While the sexy blonde received criticism that the divorce was her fault, the "Coldplay" front man says differently.

Martin tells Radio 1's Zane Lowe his marriage woes inspired latest album "Ghost Stories."

"I wouldn't use the word breakdown. This was more a realization about trying to grow up basically. Like I said, if you can't open yourself up, you can't appreciate the wonder inside. So you can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way," he stated.

"What changed for me was -- I don't want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure. Ever since our band came out, we have been a very polarizing group because we do a certain thing very well ... About two years ago I was a mess really because I can't enjoy the thing that we are good at and I can't enjoy the great things around me because I'm burdened by this -- I've got to not blame anyone else and make some changes."

It seems the "conscious uncoupling," which was announced in March on Paltrow's lifestyle site "Goop," opened up new perspectives for the "Clocks" crooner.

"I think in life everyone needs to be broken in some way," Martin explained. "I think everyone in their life goes through challenges, whether it's love or money, kids or illness. You have to really not run away from that stuff."

He continued, adding, "Up to a certain point in my life I wasn't completely vulnerable and it caused some problems," he said. "If you don't let love in then you can't really give it back."

"So what Ghost Stories means to me is like, you've got to open yourself up to love and if you really do, of course it will be painful at times, but then it will be great at some point."

We hope these two can find love and happiness again! Are you excited for "Ghost Stories?" Let us know!
