The LOVR Benefit also marks the first time that all three of California’s major law enforcement departments are joining forces to demonstrate how they are combatting the DUI epidemic within the Los Angeles community.

A musician known as “LOVR,” Noah Benardout was tragically killed on August 1, 2019 by a drunk driver while waiting to cross a West Hollywood street. On the day he died, Noah was offered a record deal, and was about to release his new EP. To honor his memory, the Benardout family established the Noah Benardout Foundation, which advocates the end of DUI fatalities through music and education.

Chris Martin Talks About Having His Kids Perform with Coldplay

Chris Martin performs on stage with his band Coldplay during the inaugural Live Event Series show on Friday (January 17) in Los Angeles.

The 42-year-old singer joked in an interview with the outlet that he and the band “force” their kids to work for them.

If you didn’t know, Chris‘ kids are featured on the song “Orphans” from the band’s new album Everyday Life.

“Well we’ve always kind of forced our children to work,” Chris joked. “We really appreciate the Victorian times of young British children getting an honest day’s pay.”

“Whenever we’re on tour, any of the kids that are around, we’ll drag them on stage for something or other. It just so happened that when I was doing the demo of that song ‘Orphans’ I just asked my children and a couple of their friends, and then ultimately loads more people if they would sing the chorus. They’re so sweet about it, and of course we do pay them properly,” he said. “Of course I’m bias, but I really like listening to them. So to be me they made the song sound great.”

Chris Martin Opens Up About Wondering if He Was Gay & Getting Past Homophobia (Video)

Chris Martin is opening up in a Rolling Stone interview presented by Dodge with Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner.

Here’s what the Coldplay frontman had to say…

On taking the name Coldplay from a friend: “My good friend Tim who was in a band and would go through band names very very fast and he would discard them and Coldplay we picked up from him.”

On his boarding school experience, wondering if he might be gay, and getting past homophobia: “When I went to boarding school I walked a bit funny and I bounced a bit and I was also very homophobic because I was like, ‘If I’m gay, I’m completely f–ked for eternity’ and I was a kid discovering sexuality. ‘Maybe I’m gay, maybe I’m this, maybe I’m that, I can’t be this’ so I was terrified and then I walked a bit funny and I was in a boarding school with a bunch of quite hardcore kids who were also gone for their thing and, for a few years, they would very much say, ‘You’re definitely gay,’ in quite a full-on manner, quite aggressively telling me that and it was weird for me for a few years…I don’t know and even if I am, I can’t be because it’s wrong… If I am, I can’t be so that was creating a terrible turmoil…I start to worry about it for sure. About 15 and a half, I don’t know what happened, I was like, ‘Yeah so what?’ and then it all just stopped overnight. It was very interesting. Once I was like, ‘Yeah, so what if I’m gay.’”

On whether worry or the kids eventually stopped: “The worry and anyone teasing you and…I don’t know what it was. I really don’t remember. Just growing up a bit and having a bit more exposure to the world thinking, ‘A lot of my heroes are gay’ or whatever. Whatever they are, it doesn’t really matter. So what that did was ease a big pressure and then made me question, ‘Hey maybe some of this stuff that I’m learning about God and everything — I’m not sure if I subscribe to all of this particular religion’… So for a few years, that was a bit wobbly and then eventually I just was like, ‘Okay, I think I have my own relationship with what I think God is and it’s not really any one religion for me.’”

Chris Martin On Performing In Jordan with Coldplay: 'We Stand For Love & Peace & Brotherhood'

Chris Martin hits the stage to perform alongside his Coldplay bandmates at the Natural History Museum on Monday (November 25) in London, England.

Over the weekend, the 42-year-old musician and his Coldplay mates – Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion — delivered a landmark performance at a Roman citadel in Amman, Jordan.

“I think we’ve come here because it’s in the very middle of the biggest zone that bands like us seem to feel they can’t go to — and because it’s in the middle of this region which we are told to be a bit scared of at the moment. So we kind of thought, ‘Let’s go there, right to the middle, then.’ To break some of that thinking,” Chris told NME. “In our experience, most people, seem to only think about or hear about the very extremes of society — and obviously that’s especially true of this area.”

“But when you come here, what you find is that most people just want to live their lives like anyone else,” Chris Martin expanded. “It’s all about trying to get different people across the world to be friends with each other, and this is sort of our vague attempt. We stand for love and for peace and for brotherhood.”
