Washington, June 13 (ANI): British rocker Chris Martin is hoping that Barack Obama will become the new US President, for he feels it would completely change the way the world sees America.

The Coldplay frontman tells Rolling Stone magazine just why hes rooting for the Democratic Presidential candidate to win the race to the White House, reports Contactmusic.

“If Obama was to be president, it would immediately change the whole outside world’s opinion of America overnight,” he says.

“America’s public image at the moment is really bad. And it’s a bummer, because over half of Americans are the coolest people on the planet. But they’ve been so misrepresented,” he adds.

On a more personal front, the rocker tells the magazine that despite being married to American actress Gwyneth Paltrow and having two kids with her, he still cant help but feel threatened by the fact that she was engaged to Brad Pitt.

“If your wife went out with Brad Pitt you’d want to prove yourself, you know what I mean?” Martin said. (ANI)
