Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin says he has given up vegetarianism, following his March breakup with Oscar-winner and longtime vegetarian Gwyneth Paltrow. "I was vegetarian for quite a long time and then for various reasons I changed," he told BBC Radio 2 host Steve Wright. "My daughter's vegetarian since she was born, so I keep getting tempted to go back. I don't eat very much meat." Martin, 37, and Paltrow, 41, have a daughter Apple, 10, and a son Moses, 8. In 2005, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) named Martin the "world's sexiest vegetarian."
