AFTER splitting from wife Gwyneth Paltrow, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has been sending the media mixed messages with some of his latest public appearances.

In a recent interview on BBC Radio 1 in the UK, Martin spoke of his sexual-orientation questioning after meeting with One Direction band member Harry Styles.

“I was like this, ‘I was pretty sure I was a straight guy before’,” Martin laughed.

“I was having a hot flush.”

Afterwards, Martin appeared on American TV show Saturday Night Live, where he donned a blonde wig and kissed Amazing Spider Man actor Andrew Garfield.

The kiss was done for a comedy sketch in which real-life girlfriend of Garfield, Emma Stone, who also plays Spider Man’s on-screen girlfriend Gwen Stacy, has trouble with a ‘romantic scene’ with Spider Man.

Martin saves the scene by stepping into the role of Gwen Stacy to finish the scene, much to Garfield’s protest.

While the original sketch is not available to watch online in Australia we did find a copy of it in a video report from entertainment website E!
