Mexico City - (Rioters): Hubris has addled Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin's brain after he described a song on the band's next album as 'basically genius'.
"Everybody's gotta hear this song before they die, otherwise we'll be terribly depressed", he said as his ego tumesced beyond the stratosphere previously occupied by tens of thousands of other nutty cocky crooners during the last forty years of bigbux music promotion.
"This is a way new sound for us", Martin babbled on optimistically. "Like, man, for a long time fans felt like we were a band in black-and-white. Because we have this incredible job, now we can do whatever we like, and try all kinds of new things," he added in a fit of logical reasoning surpassing even that of the great master of philosophy Nietsche.
The new album has no title yet but the odds are shortening every day on it being released under the name of 'Einstein' or 'Leonardo Da Vinci' or suchlike - all apparently peers of Martin in his self-promoting pantheon of cosmic brilliance.
Martin's other claim to genius achievement is his marriage to Gwynneth Paltrow.
