Chris Martin of Coldplay declares Rihanna as the ultimate vocalist of all time
During a recent interview with Apple Music 1, Chris Martin of Coldplay spoke about his experience on the big sports stage in 2016 and expressed his admiration for Rihanna and her theatricality.
“I don’t know Rihanna very well,” Martin told interviewer Zane Lowe, per Billboard. “I’m mainly just a fan, and we have performed with her a few times, and you’re right, it is rarer and rarer for her to just sing, which is what makes it even more special, and in a strange way, it shows that she really, really wants to do it. No one can make Rihanna do anything at this point.”
“He went on to admit he is a big fan of the singer, and he has gotten to perform with her on a few occasions. ‘You have to be an idiot not to recognize that she’s the best singer of all time. I’m very biased because I’m such a big Rihanna fan,’ he continued. ‘I mean, I think she could just walk out in sweatpants and sing, and that would be just great.'”

However, not everyone appreciated the show, especially Chris Martin’s attempts to dance alongside the two professional performers.
