Coldplay’s Chris Martin has revealed that he has had a ringing sound in his head for the last ten years, which he claims isn’t from his wife Gwyneth Paltrow. Says Digital Spy,
Chris Martin has revealed that he has suffered from tinnitus for over ten years, and has fronted a new campaign highlighting the infliction.
The Coldplay frontman explained that he has had the ear condition for the past decade, suffering from ringing in his ears and painful headaches.
Doctors have reportedly warned him that he must wear earplugs in order to save his music career.
“I’ve had tinnitus for about ten years, but since I started protecting my ears it hasn’t got any worse – touch wood,” he said in a statement.
“The band use moulded filter plugs, or in-ear monitors. You can use industrial headphones but they look strange at a party.”
Listening to loud music at gigs or in headphones are common causes of the condition, and Martin believes this is most the likely case for him.
An insider added: “Chris suffered with terrible ringing in his ears and excruciating headaches. If he hadn’t sought treatment, he might not be performing today.
“When he does perform, he wears ear monitors to prevent hearing loss.”
Well, the upside to it is he has an excuse to wear earplugs around his Cunty McCuntersons wife as she expounds on the benefits of existing on only raw plant materials, or cleansing her colon with lavendar-infused water or whatever else she yaps about. He can just simply tap his ears, shrug his shoulders, and say, “I’m sorry, I can’t hear you. Tinnitus, you know.”
