'Princess of China' might make Coldplay and Rihanna the musical kings and queen of Britain. RiRi and Chris Martin's band are among the leading contenders for the 2013 BRIT Awards. The annual U.K. awards show today (Jan. 10) revealed its list of nominees, which also included a surprise nod for the late Amy Winehouse.
Gwyneth Paltrow is married to the lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin, so it's not surprising that spent her New Year's Eve with her hubby's band and their two tots, Apple and Moses, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. It was a little surprising, though, that she danced onstage to 'Run This Town' with Jay-Z ... because it was embarrassing to watch.
Hurricane Sandy effected the entire Tri-state area around New York City, leaving millions without power and displaced from their homes. The storm, which touched down around Halloween, is still at the forefront of our minds.
Pop stars did their part and performed at the largely classic rock-leaning 12-12-12 concert event that took place at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Dec. 12. Kanye West and Alicia Keys were on hand to lend their talents for good, as was Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
By now, Coldplay fans worldwide are probably set to watch the band on television, online, and on apps during their 'Live 2012' tour film, brought to us by Epix. The premiere of the original concert event will air on Nov. 17 and will be made available for purchase on Nov. 20, and with this clip of the band performing 'Hurts Like Heaven,' it looks as thought everyone prepping for the final viewing will be in for a helluva night.
