Coldplay at the MTV Europe Awards

November 14, 2002 10:12 PM

Coldplay only came through on one of their 4 nominations at this year's European MTV Music Awards. They came away with the award for Best UK & Ireland Act. I thought for sure they'd be strong candidates for the other awards, but it looks like the winners were pretty well spread out, which isn't always a bad thing. There's a great picture of the band taken on the red carpet at the MTV Europe site.

PlayLouder...No, Wait, Shutup!

November 08, 2002 1:14 AM

What is up with the guys over at PlayLouder? They are notorious for making snide remarks about Chris Martin and the rest of the band. It's really stupid if you ask me. This time around they've gone so far as to call Chris a "scary bedwetting Christian." See it for yourself at playlouder.com.
