Remember when Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow began their journey toward "conscious uncoupling" and the world was somewhat miffed? Well, said uncoupling has been completed, and Chris + Goop have entered a new phase in their relationship wherein they're more like siblings than spouses. In other words, they're the living embodiment of #DivorceGoals.

That said, the Coldplay frontman seems well aware of just how unusual his divorce from Paltrow is, and even went to far as to call their relationship "weird."

"It's always out there in the media, but I have a very wonderful separation-divorce," he told The Sunday Times (opens in new tab). "I've lived a lot since then. It's a divorce, but it's a weird one."

If by "lived a lot," Chris means he got in formation (opens in new tab) with Beyoncé at the Superbowl and killed it, then yes.

"You can come it at very aggressively and blame and blame," he continued. "Or you can put yourself in the garage, so to speak. Take yourself apart and clean off the bits. Reassemble."

So, basically Chris Martin is a human transformer in the best way ever. It's all coming together.
