The group and Corden had united to pay tribute to Prince's untimely passing earlier this year with a cover of 'Nothing Compares 2 U'. However, the evening ended in tragedy when Music itself was declared dead shortly after the horrific attack on the worlds collective ears.
Sinéad O'Connor, who made the song famous in 1992, famously got into a punch up with Prince after he didn't approve of the cover and her foul language in interviews. After watching the Coldplay/Corden cover, O'Connor said "Jesus fucking Christ, I wish the stupid bastard [Prince] were alive today to knock seven shades of shit out of these boring cunts and that bigger, fatter, unfunnier cunt. They fucking actually killed music, and I'm famously against killing shit. I'm famously against everything, actually. Fuck off trying to interview me, I'm against it!"
In related news, the Chainsmokers, known for their shitty song 'Selfie', have another number one hit on their hands this week. They have denied any involvement in the plot to murder music, despite all the evidence.
