Usually when Golden Retrievers get mad, they sulk. But Chris Martin surprised everybody by whining, even growling a little, at a couple of overeager autograph seekers who yelled to him after a charity concert at the Palladium in L.A. on Monday night. No need to send Chris for rabies testing or anything, according to TMZ, he eventually calmed down and signed the fucking autographs anyway. Yes, Chris cussed! So now we know, even Golden Retrievers have their limits.
TMZ reports that Chris had already had a rough night, forgetting the lyrics to one of his songs and begging the audience not to put it on YouTube. So he was primed for a fight by the time the show was over. Well, not a fight exactly, but he was feeling his oats and clearly did not want to be a good boy in that moment.
Chris Martin tore a group of autograph hounds a new one for being way too aggressive in trying to get him to scribble on their crap … a trend that’s becoming more common.
The Coldplay frontman was fuming Monday night after a charity performance he did at the Palladium in L.A. for a prison reform org. He certainly wasn’t in the mood for a stop-and-sign after what seemed to be a relatively bumpy set … where he forgot his lyrics.
TMZ says he “tore them a new one” but it was actually more like if you try to take a bone away from a dog that you know for a fact is not going to actually bite you, but they growl a little under their breath, and you feel slightly guilty about disturbing them and take it away anyway because ultimately, you’re the boss. And it’s not like you’re not going to give it back eventually, because at the end of the day, he really is a good boy. Here’s the exchange. (starts at 0:11)
Ugh, why is he so nice to those jerks? Doesn’t he see it’s a vicious cycle? This is why when I’m super famous I’m going to be extremely haughty to everybody I meet. Set the expectation where I need it to be. You’d have thought Chris would have learned this technique in the years he spent living with an Akita.
