Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson has hit out at the media's "obsession" with his weight, claiming he is tired of constant criticism.

The Brit Award-winner has even suffered at the hands of Coldplay frontman CHRIS MARTIN - who recently commented on how slight he looked.

Wilson says, "When I saw Chris Martin recently he stopped me and told me he'd heard I'd been having a bit of a rough time. Then he looked at me and said: 'And I think you're actually really thin.' I didn't know what to say. Is my weight really all that interesting?"

The English rocker is also becoming increasingly angry with stories about him overeating and being greedy.

He claims, "I've got a chubby face, so everyone thinks I'm really fat. There are always stories about me "stuffing my face" or "porking out".
