Chris Martin: being sued will make Coldplay better

Coldplay front man Chris Martin has claimed that being sued for plagiarism will inspire him to write better songs in the future.

The English popsters are in the dock for allegedly pinching the melody for their song 'Viva La Vida' from Joe Satriani's 'If I Could Fly'.

Speaking to Coldplay's official website, Martin has said the court case will help him to write better material: "Some people are suing us at the moment and although it was initially a bit depressing, now it's become really inspiring".

"You think, 'Right, if everyone's trying to take away our best song, then we'd better write 25 better ones'. And so just at the point where I was thinking about getting fat and becoming complacent, I've been finding more inspiration. Now we've got more to prove than ever before."

You said it Chris, time to find some more unknown songs to 'borrow' for your next album. Ever heard 'My Lovely Horse'?
