Divorce is great 

'I have a very wonderful separation-divorce. It's a divorce – but it's a weird one.' Nor does he see divorce as a negative development. 'I don't think about that word very often. I don't see it that way. I see it as more like you meet someone, you have some time together and things just move through.'

Beyonce told him to get his act together

Martin wrote a song called 'Hook Up' for Beyoncé, and played it to her in the studio. She turned it down, 'in the sweetest possible way. She told me, "I really like you – but this is awful."'

He's down with the (well, his) kids

Apple and Moses introduced him to Silentó's 'Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)'. 'I'm not sure if I can whip, but I can nae nae with the best of them.'

He has Rocky #goals

'Rocky IV has the most awesome training sequence of all time. I think it triggers the young boy in me who saw it and was like, "Wow – if you wanna do something, just fucking lift logs!"' So that's exercise - what about diet? 'If Rocky eats it, I do, too.'

He's heard the Coldplay jokes

'I had a couple of years in the mid-2000s where it was really confusing to me. I was like, "Why is our band sometimes a punch line?"'

Aw, Chris. The jokes come from a place of love. Also from the a place of your dancing being funny.
