Coldplay frontman Chris Martin recently gushed about fellow pop star Rihanna in an interview, calling her the “Frank Sinatra of our generation.”

Pals say it’s not surprising — the 39-year-old Brit is finally officially uncoupled from Gwyneth Paltrow, and has had a crush on Rihanna for years!

“His band members love to tease Chris about it, telling him he and Rihanna should just get it over with and run off together,” a friend said.

“Chris turns red-faced over it.”

He and Rihanna, 28, sang a Coldplay hit in 2012, and sparked dating rumors earlier in 2014.

“You get the feeling Rihanna is the true apple of Chris’s eye,” said a spy. “He turns into mush around her.”
