Chris Martin: Lady Gaga is a better writer than me

Chris Martin reckons Lady Gaga can pen better choruses than even him.
Martin reckons Gaga is a better songwriter
Chris Martin has revealed that he is a modest human being by stating he thinks Lady Gaga is a better songwriter than him.

The Coldplay frontman, who is seen by many in the music business as one of the greatest songwriters in recent times, told the Sun that his ability to pen classic hits was not on the same level as Gaga.

Martin, who recently admitted he was a huge fan of the X Factor, said he had a lot of love for the kooky fashionista – he respects her a lot as an artist.

"She's very sweet. I think what undercuts it all, though, is that she's talented and she writes everything," he told the newspaper.

"I just admire all of the hats and the dresses and the madness and everything because I know that underneath it all she can beat me at writing choruses."

Martin recently admitted that life in the family household is a little strange – everyone speaks Spanish.

He told the Mirror that his missus Gwyneth Paltrow and their two children chit-chat in Spanish, leaving him in the cold.
