Coldplay are more talented than The Beatles

It’s never much of a surprise when a pop star makes an outrageous claim that literally no-one in the world agrees with, especially when said pop star is Kanye West. However usually he’s making a wild claim about himself.

This time however, he’s gone too far: In an interview with The Sun West has claimed that Chris Martin is a genius on a level with John Lennon, and that Coldplay are more talented than The Beatles. Yes Kanye, and you’re a better rapper than KRS-One, Biggie Smalls and Nas put together.

‘America has, and probably always will, dominate music across the globe but it's always been the British who pull out that very special band,’ he said. ‘We have had amazing bands like Nirvana and Guns N' Roses but it's the British who have had the cream with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones setting the standard.

‘I love Coldplay, and I honestly think they are on the same level as The Beatles. In 30 years, when Coldplay are old men, people will look back and say, ‘These guys were more talented than The Beatles’.’

‘I have worked with Chris Martin and the man is a genius - as a performer and a songwriter he is on the same level as John Lennon. I am not saying this sort of s**t lightly, it's really how talented the guy is. And Coldplay can go down as the best ever - even bigger than The Beatles.’
