Kylie too sexy for Coldplay

Coldplay axed a duet with Kylie Minogue from their new album - saying it was "too sexy".

The band teamed up with the Australian singer for 'Luna' but frontman Chris Martin admits it just didn't fit in with the serious tone of their new LP 'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends'.

Chris said: "At this point we cannot be that sexy. It's a song called 'Luna' and Kylie was particularly brilliant on it.

"She writes most of our stuff - and we design most of her outfits!"

However, the musician has promised fans they will get to hear the song, saying: "It will be on a record we will put out in 2009, sometime at the end of next year. It will be track nine, I imagine."

Meanwhile, Chris claims to be the only person in the world who believes in Zeus.

The 31-year-old star, who was raised as a Christian, is exploring his faith but is interested in the Greek god of sky and thunder.

He said: "I'm always trying to work out what he or she or it is. I'm not sure who's right. I don't know if it's Allah or Jesus or Mohammed or Zeus. But I'd maybe go for Zeus.

"I lay claim to being the only person in the world who still believes in Zeus."

'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends' is released on Monday (12.06.08).
