Well THIS should certainly be interesting!

If anyone recalls, before Miz Katy Perry was engaged to Russell Brand, she dated Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy.

They parted ways over a year ago, but he's clearly still coming to terms with the heartbreak, because he's channeled it all into a solo project called Forgetting Katy Perry!

Wow!

He says:

"I think it was inspired by that whole situation. At the end of the day, I think anyone who has been thorough some shit can relate to (the music). It could have been about my girlfriends before, but I'm (going to) keep it real with you, it was definitely about Katy Perry. I definitely felt a certain way about the whole situation. Having a year and a half to reflect on it, you start questioning everything…The timelines… she got engaged so quickly after. I was like, 'Really?' I had to sit back and reassess what was really going on. After you have some time to start thinking about it, you start putting things together. It's been a year and a half. I'm over it. I'm sure she knows. The mixtape is not airing out any dirty laundry. If anything, it's me poking fun at myself. If you've seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall, that's my life. I'm that dude."

We have to admit, we're very curious to hear what kind of tunes he produced! Could be JUICY!

But still seriously AWKWARD!!!

What do U think?? Will U give a listen to Forgetting Katy Perry??

    i Love travis, i think thats really cool of him being so upfront and honest i can't wait to hear it, and I've been in that position to when someone u were with moves on so fast it sucks so if this helped channel all that energy thats only a good thing, I hope he finds a great girl



  2. 2

    how ironic, forgetting sarah marshall, starring russell brand lol!



  3. 3

    That guy looks like he has mold growing on him.



  4. 4

    Isn't that a press attention seeking on his behalf? I don't like that he uses Katy's name to promote himself, career and album!



  5. 5

    I am a HUGE Katy's fan AND I'm very upset right now!!It's obvious that he only wanted to advertise his album by using Katy!That's disgusting!
    Would you post something about his new album otherwise, Perez??I'm sure not!



  6. 6

    That is ironic. I've been where he is at, not fun! Hope he finds an kickass woman! Furthermore it's awesome that he is not spewing out hatred for Russell.



  7. 7

    Re: akinoz – LOL. Yea! And doesn't that makes Travis look a bit desperate?

  8. Kate! says – reply to this


    8

    I find it horrible! It's obvious that he is using Katy's name to make headlines, covers, be heard or whatever!Even Perez posted about him!That was his aim and he accomplished it!I don't believe in his good intentions…Why give your album the name of your ex who is now engaged to another man?I want to vomit…sorry!

    You know this just happened to me??? I met a girl 3 years and 6 months ago, who promised me marriage and babies. Then…after 9 months, she just abruptly disappeared after running into financial issues, and next, just 3 months after she told me we were cool again, but she had to live with her brothers and get back her teaching job, I read her online posting that she put-up, which stated that she just got married 2 months before the posting was made, and was hoping to have a baby with the guy, a guy I didn't know ever existed? I had to think-over the timeline…and well, as you all know, most people don't meet and get engaged and married within a month, so that means she had been seeing this other guy for a while–months, years??? It was, and is, very sad for me.



  10. 10

    Travis who???seems to me the world has "forgotten Travis"…



  11. 11

    He sure looks different than russel brand..



  12. 12

    It's also strangely coincidental that I have been penning an album largely inspired by the girl who left me? It's like an open Journal–something to let my feelings out, so I perfectly understand him. You have to vent when somebody lets you down, you just have to, if the event is cruel, sudden, and vulgar enough–or you'll go mad from being emotionally crushed. In Travis' case, this has to especially hurt him since Katy's new man openly admits to being a sex addict, who had his staff pick women out of his audiences each night so he could sleep with them, and lost his virginity to a prostitute, as paid for by his father, as well, he says that he is still obsessed with prostitutes, having slept with many, and hangs-out with them all the time. This is the man that Katy has rushed to marry, after telling Travis that he wasn't good enough because he is from the hood? Of course, if you are her immediate ex, you are going to wonder what you had, when she could just run-off and marry the first wack-job, and sexual freak, to throw himself at her, post break-up? He has to wonder, did he ever really know her at all, and did she ever really love him, in the face of this. This isn't about spite, it is about knowing that you have been duped, and dealing with it emotionally. You feel that you have been violently raped, spiritually, mentally and physically. You just do!!! How do you get over that?



  13. 13

    hmmm maybe…Katy was cheating on him with Russle… I dunno I feel bad for him. He seems hurt. Katy made a mistake with Russle he is probably already cheating… I hope she had him tested.



  14. 14

    Re: Zipocrite – While I know you said you feel sad, you should actually be hopping, skipping, jumping, and singing praises to on high that she is out of your life before you got bogged down with her even further. Hopefully you will soon reach a point where you can rejoice that you were able to escape the clutches of a big ol' LIAR.



  15. 15

    How about that Katy used him before she was famous, was in his music vids, etc. Then she blows up and they split and then she gets engaged like two minutes after meeting Russell. I like Katy, but I think they are even now. They were together a long ass time and had she not blown up, they probably would still be together. Those people around you get to you. Yeah he might have done stupid shit, but she wasn't leaving before then. That being said, I like Katy and Russell together, but I think Travis needs to do this for closure and I think after that case closed.

    Why the hell are the comments so slow? Is Perez or his sister monitering them again, ugh! "Perez what ever happened to, I can dish is and I can take it!" Plus, people aren't even fucking talking about you!!!



  18. 18

    katy perry was being pawned around and travis mccoy was merely a pawn of some sorts now she is with (forgetting sarah marshall star??) and handler to katy perrry russell brand. theres nothing real about "po-active, were talking about zits baby" dimwitted wide-eyed, "great tits" katy perry



  19. 19

    Hmmm…..Is Russell Brand IN Forgetting Sarah Marshall? Coincidence?

  20. diye says – reply to this


    20

    dunno about this, what forgetting sarah marshall is now his life because his ex is w the guy sarah marshall was on the movie?? im absolutely confused about this bs, is he trying to get attention,??? dunno condusing.



  21. 21

    wow…he saw forgetting sarah marshall? i thought no one saw that



  22. 22

    Travis and the rest of gym class are awesome
    so yea ofc i'll be listening to this



  23. 23

    i enjoy Travis and his band.. if he wants to make music about his ex.. then let him be.. he doesn't seem like an attention whore to me like majority of HollyWeirdo's.. even if he was from the hood, i'm sure Katie loved that part about him… we don't know what happened in their relationship… so i'm not try'n to judge either… i'd love to hear what he has to say tho'.. actually i seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall and it was hilarious!!..



  24. 24

    Why does she only date trailer trash?!



  25. 25

    This is awkward on several levels…where to begin? But it worked. Selling out Katy and Russell has made me interested. good job.



  26. 26

    Travis: be worried about the fact you're a brother who doesn't like ass. You got away from that flat but and those over hyped micro tits that only a ten year old would think were big. Brand is a rebound, she is a skank and now you're free. Don't waste an album on that cow, you'll live to regret it.



  27. 27

    That girl has the weirdest taste in men… seriously!! Travis McCoy and Russell Brand… wow!



  28. 28

    OMG he is sooo sweet! w0w I never listened to Gym CHero's music.
    But w0w, I hope Travis knows Katy's the one losing in this situation. :(
    She's going to marry that Douche-Bag, & completely miss out on REAL love.
    Travis is so sincere, he deserves better than Katy anyway.
    She's so stupid she's with that fuck-up Brand just wait until they have fuglyass children & he fucks them up with all he's mental & physical issues! LOL
    Travis is the winner in this situation!



  29. 29

    I find him extremely hot. I'd take Travis over Russell ANY day!



  30. 30

    I love Katy Perry, I was hooked after hearing her album, she has a beautiful voice, she's an awesome woman. But I also love Travie, and I do not think it will be awkward in any way, musicians are well known for using music as a kind of therapy.
    So of course I'll be giving it a listen. And we all know Perez will be too, as well, because he feels the need to know every single detail about these peoples' lives, despite the fact that Katy is his "best friend", and wouldn't she tell him this stuff? And wouldn't you, as someone's alleged best friend, feel loyalty to said friend enough to not want to know anyway???



  31. 31

    Re: lovekatyperry – I think you're being an idiot. Travie's not that sort of person, she'd be more likey to do that. And I love Katy too. But I have a fair and open mind. Maybe you should try that sometime…



  32. 32

    Re: Zipocrite – Wow, you said everything I would say if I had a way with words. You understand it completely. Respect.



  33. 33

    You guys say Travis is using Katy's fame to get his name in the headlines, but wasn't Gym Class Heroes an already famous band BEFORE Katy's shitty ass song came out?

    So you have to wonder….who's using who?



  34. 34

    Re: Zipocrite – Show me who you run with and sleep with and I'll show you who you are. Katy Perry is a catty, untalented whore who was raised by confused and purulent Jesus freaks. she knows she comes from a cluless background and she knows a black husband would have taken her stock down internationally with the racist media. Katy Payola has virtually zero knowledge of media history or anything interesting to say due to a colourless religious upbringing. In my experience, this type of person is very untrustworthy as they proudly STEAL songs, ideas and looks to comprise the majority of what they do and even say. If she was not now Russell "funny as a burning orphanage" Brand's sanctimonious excuse to prove he's no longer an escort junkie sticking forks in his clavicle then she'd have already been deemed over last year. Travis just gave her street cred.



  35. 35

    Katy Perry has small tits that look saggy unless she wears moulded bras. In her early videos and pics she is almost flat chested and barely B.
    She says she a "32D" but that's the smallest D cup I've ever seen and I know boobs, I'm an expert. Katy Perry is more like a 32C if even that big. Do ANY of you KNOW what big tits look like? She's small for her body type and as someone with big natural tits, this offends me that all of you are so un tit schooled. She saw a way to get attention. Jessica Simpson is Double D and no way is she a cup size smaller. Tyra Banks is a 32D and no way in hell is Payola Perry that big.



  36. 36

    Brendalove: You are right! When a person makes you feel like you want to leap from a bridge, literally, and they don't seem to care what happens to you either way, it is time to let them go–still, you can't help but to feel completely duped, and used. Thank you for your kind words–I was just hoping to make a better world for she and I, but everything came down to money, or the lack of it, and she left without looking back?



  37. 37

    CherryMalice: The words you wish to express are there, and you will find them. It is just awful when we give our all to love someone, and they have other motives. It is okay to have needs that your lover can't fulfill, if that is a person's view, they should just say so, and move on, but they should move on with the kind of elegance, and class; that they entered the relationship with, as a friend–and I think that is what Travis is dealing with, the shock that someone who said that she loved him enough to marry him, could then turn and claim to have the same feelings for a stranger, someone she just met? Again, she left Travis because, in the view of her friends, he wasn't classy enough (perhaps hsi color was the real issue?), but instead, she is going to marry a guy who regularly beds prostitutes, and is an admitted sleep around; where is the class in that kind of man? It causes you to question your own sense of good judgement when you let someone into your life, whom you trusted, someone who has conned you–this, the source of his hurt and mine. And in a way, when someone cons you like that, that misrepresentation of a person's character, is a form of rape, no different than someone giving you a drink laced with roofies.



  38. 38

    DoubleECupMagus: I think she ultimately traded-up over color, and that is troubling, and her loss, as you should take true love in whatever form that you can find it, as long as the person you are with is kind, and loyal, and respects you, and others–color, or position in life, should not matter. You are correct, about a person's choice in who they sleep with, it is a direct mirror of who they are. When I measure a woman's character, or lack there of, I always look at the person she is dating or married to, or has been involved with, in order to better understand who she is. Oh, and bra size doesn't matter, it is the size of a person's compassion for others that matters, that's the big something that draws my attention, not big boobs or ass. I want a woman with a big soul!!!!



  39. 39

    Who the fuck cares, they're both nobodies!



  40. 40

    How classic - I am hilare here "Forgetting Katy Perry", very clever, very clever :D :D :D I like his sense of humour :P



  41. 41

    I THINK SHE GOT ENGAGED QUICKLY TO SPITE HIM!



  42. 42

    Err that would mean he is suggesting she was cheating on him while they were together…ew I don't want to think of her as a cheater, Travis stoppit. I hope he meant he was "that guy" as in he was that heartbroken..not depleted and lovless through heartache and cheating.
    & I don't think he needed to name his side project after her, we could have just assumed. EEK this a total blast off of dirty laundry..
    KATY CLEAR THE AIR!



  43. 43

    I think it's funny considering just 3 years ago when I was an RA & he was SO IN LOVE with Katy Perry he was calling one of my residents everyday, trying to fly her to miami to meet him & paying for everything for her…so to suggest someone else was cheating is funny because he sure was head-over-heels for my friend while he was with Katy Perry…what a joke.



  44. 44

    it's funny cos in the movie sarah marshall hooks up with russell brand



  45. 45

    Re: Zipocrite – I agree totally. Why I rage about this is because she had a single no one noticed (Use Your Love)Awful cover of the Outfield) and then started hyping herself and her boobs to get attention which was so phoney.

    During katy perry's cancer rack plastering charity PR stunt she was acting as if she had these "giant boobs" and "32Ds" and she doesn't.
    "Oh her's are smaller than mine" she says pointing to another cast that was taken of another girl and acting all baby girlish. wtf? That's not girl power!
    Is that how you act when it's for BREAST CANCER RESEARCH? No bitch Katy your's ARE NOT BIG in fact they almost smaller than ANYONE's I know personally.

    that is why i hate the bitch. You don't use breast cancer research to hype your tits and play size queen -ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE THE BIG JUGS TO BACK IT UP. Regina Spektor (an H cup) could kill Katy Perry with a third of a boob.

    Anyway, she's going in for a miserable life ahead and her new album will fail despite millions behind it and Travis McCoy will have the last laugh at katy Perry. watch. Brand is an no talent eternal junkie.



  46. 46

    I find it funny that Russell Brand started in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and is now engaged to Katy. lol. I won't listen to this. Team Katy! ;)



  47. 47

    russell brand, her fiancee, was in forgetting sarah marshall lol i get it



  48. 48

    re DoubleECupMagus: Hear hear!!! Yes, about the breast cancer charity cast!!! Finally someone that recognizes this for the unconscionable and exploitative act that this was. But it's not something most people can even understand (you're the first person I've ever hear say this!), probably Katy herself has not clue as to how wrong that was. I think she's genuinely oblivious, not that that makes her any less culpable.

    And right on about Regina. Yeah, and she hides them most of the time, doesn't she!!!



  49. 49

    Re: LadyHettyGreen – Yes! VERY true because Regina Spektor has REALLY got it all, not just cute clothing and sex appeal, she's VERY talented. I do politely beg to differ though on one point, I think Katy Perry knows exactly what she was doing. That "raunchy culture, Christian girl gone wild" shtick Katy Perry uses as her modus operandi is very conniving or at LEAST as you succinctly pointed out, worthy of reproach. I'm disappointed that more young feminists have not said anything about her tired Joe Francis approved antics but then I wish there were more young feminists for starters. Payola Perry knows excatly what she's doing!



  50. 50

    re: DoubleECupMagus : Most definitely it is completely disheartening that young women and the (probably very young) girls who make up her demographic do not instantly recognize what Katy's M.O. is and call a spade a spade. And yes, I didn't mean to suggest that Katy doesn't know her game better than anyone, but that particular instance of exploiting illness was so unethical, I don't think that she has the capacity to fathom how wrong it was on several different cultural levels. I think the success of Katy and her distressingly multitudinous contemporaries are proof that feminism necessitates constant vigilance, but I'm increasingly pessimistic about how the way in which the crasser and more openly misogynistic culture becomes, the more sophisticated feminists must be with their combative strategies. In other words, how do you solve the paradox that the more blatant this is, the less women seem able to see it, let alone halt it? It seems to operate on a more fundamentally psychological, archetypal level, beyond rational thought.



  51. 51

    Re: LadyHettyGreen – yes very true, it does because women have to overcome their fear of being labelled neadtively by man insated of trying to be seen as hot thing for male approval and lying to thesmelves by calling it "empowering".

    paris Hilton, Lohan, madonna (desperate for her 22 year old Jesus whom she funds), Montag etc etc are NOT empowered yet they are the role models now. I'm 31 so I remember older friends who are now in their mid to late 30's who went to Uni during the last big feminist revolution (Susan Faluidi, Wolf, Beauty Myth, NARAL, Ani DeFranco etc) and I saw many get too caught up in defending Madonna for being raunchy and vulgar, not seeing the racism within the movement and generally laying down too many rules and pushing out voices of descent. I can't stand Camile Paglia but because she was pushed out of mainstream feminism and was willing to be into fun pop culture stuff without apology, her raunch culture style feminism became popular. i recall her lambasting Britney for vagina flashing..what does she think madonna was doing ten years before? Katy Perry is reaping the rewards but the gravy train will not be endless for her because she isn't smart enough to keep it going properly.



  52. 52

    ONLY BECAUSE I HATE THE STUPID OBNOXIOUS NO TALENT BITCH! SHE IS A BOTTOM-FEEDER LIKE PEREZ! HE IS BASICALLY SAYING THE BITCH PROBABLY CHEATED ON HIM, ALL THE WHILE WHINING ABOUT NOT TRUSTING HIM!!! SHE REALLY IS MANIPULATIVE AND NOW, SLUTTY AS WELL!!!
