Chris Martin:Bye bye Gwyneth,Hello meat! I’m no longer vegetarian

Singer Chris Martin has given up on his vegetarian diet following his split from his wife Gwyneth Paltrow, who is a vegan.

The Coldplay frontman and the “Shakespeare In Love” actress announced their “consciously uncoupled” status in March after 10 years of marriage.

Now Martin has resumed his meat-eating habits, but he still encourages their 10-year-old daughter, Apple, to stick to vegetarianism, reports

“I am not really vegetarian. I eat meat. I was vegetarian for a long time but, for various reasons, I changed. My daughter has been a vegetarian since she was born. I keep getting tempted to go back to vegetarianism but I don’t eat too much meat,” Martin told a radio channel.


The 37-year-old singer, who also has an eight-year-old son, Moses, with Paltrow, admits the diet change for him is a personal choice.

“The honest answer why I changed is because I thought you can only eat something that you should be able to kill. I mean, could you kill a fish? I wouldn’t like it but I probably could eat the fish… or a giraffe,” he quipped.
