Coldplay 'Don't Want Justin Bieber Collaboration'
Chris Martin jokes that they're too old to work with teen idol...
The Coldplayfrontman has jokily ruled out working with Biebs on the grounds that he's too young and far too incredibly good looking.
He was quoted by The Sun as saying: "Rihanna was top of our list of collaborators, and we've done that. She was lovely — she was cool. We'd work with anyone who wanted to work with us.
"But Justin Bieber is too handsome for us. If he wants to do a video with four people who look like his grandparents then we should be in it.
"But we've got to look good — we'd just look terrible next to that guy. He's good-looking and has an amazing complexion."
And he even made a quip about Biebs when he took to the stage at the Capital FM Summertime Ball - at which they joined him on the bill.
He told the crowd: "We're Justin Bieber's dads."
