‘Coldplay‘ singer Chris Martin has been hiding the fact that he suffers from hearing malfunction ‘tinnitus’ for a number of years. The condition causes sufferers to hear a permanent ringing in their ears, and is often caused by over-exposure to extremely loud noises.
Now Chris is fronting a campaigning for people to wear earplugs when exposed to loud noises, alongside rapper ‘Plan B‘. Chris recently revealed that he started to suffer from the condition at the age of 25, and that he regrets not protecting his ears more at a younger age. “Looking after your ears is unfortunately something you don’t think about until there’s a problem. I’ve had tinnitus for about 10 years, and since I started protecting my ears it hasn’t got any worse. But I wish I’d thought about it earlier.”
