Chris Martin—in conjunction with a Rolling Stone cover shot that screams “LOVE ME!” and “wyd...” at the same time—says he once wrote a song for Beyoncé that she rejected because it was bad.

In excerpts from this week’s RS cover story, Martin recalls playing a tune titled “Hook Up” for his good friend slash Super Bowl collaborator Beyoncé in the studio.

Martin says Bey responded with the kindest curve: “She turned it down in the sweetest possible way. She told me, ‘I really like you – but this is awful.’” Wonder how that feels.

Elsewhere in the piece, Martin describes his conscious uncoupling from his damn-near sister Gwyneth Paltrow as “very wonderful.”

“It’s a divorce – but it’s a weird one,” he tells RS. “I don’t think about that word [divorce] 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.”

Wasn’t there just another story about how they tried to write something for Bowie and he also turned them down? Take the hint, guys.
