Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin follow the celebrity code of silence when it comes to their marriage - good luck spotting them on the red carpet together - but they've recently been a bit more open.
Paltrow explained to Elle earlier this year, that Martin "makes music for his fans, and he doesn’t want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they’re getting into his music...I get it.”
"Right, I'm in it," he said. "It's weird... It is a big leap....From being a loser to going out with an Oscar winner? It's a giant leap. It's like winning the lottery. I was happy to make it."
But that doesn't mean he wants to keep talking about it. "We're still just trying to keep that whole thing quiet," Martin said. "Well, up till now."
To those who don't get where that collaboration came from, Martin said, "Don't you think that music now shouldn't fall into a particular box? I don't think anyone thinks like that anymore. You don't see many goths, hippies, rockers and hip hoppers anymore. People like Kanye [West] are changing the way we all listen and the Internet."
For example, he continues, "Look at Tinie Tempah. Just the song 'Pass Out' has about eight different music types in it."
"Mylo Xyloto" drops October 24.
