Unwilling to squander the opportunity to celebrate Barlow in his own special way, Martin revealed that English boy band Take That -- which Barlow is a member of -- made him momentarily question his sexuality when he was growing up.
Martin said that when he was younger his two favorite bands were "U2 and five handsome, strapping men from Stoke and Manchester. I'm not afraid to admit it, they made me ask the question 'Am I gay?'"
The Sun reports that at the after party, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr responded to Martin's confession by joking, "I have the answer for you -- you are gay."
Coldplay received the award for "Best Band in the World" at last night's ceremony. Their new album, Mylo Xyloto, landed in stores yesterday.
