Chris Martin says the only thing he can't get in America is "laid".
The Coldplay frontman, who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, enjoys touring around the US but misses his wife and English chocolate bars when he is away from home.
When asked if there is anything he can get in Britain but not in America, Chris smiled and replied: "Laid. Oh and maybe a Toffee Crisp."
Chris admits being a global music star can get lonely and he has sometimes considered running away and starting a new life.
The rocker added: "There has been a few times when I have been on the Serpentine River in London where I have thought, 'I am going to ditch this pedalo and run away to Brighton'."
Despite the pitfalls of living in the public spotlight, Chris feels most at home when he is performing live and is dedicated to energetically entertaining his fans.
The 31-year-old musician explained to Britain's Times 2 supplement: "I split my trousers for the first time on stage recently. I aspire to ripping my trousers. It shows I am enjoying myself."
