Travis McCoy Responds To Katy Perry's New Song About Him

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteKaty PerryTravis McCoy

This is awkward.

Katy Perry's jilted ex Travie McCoy had no problem expressing how he felt when he heard her new single Circle The Drain - which was most likely written about him.

Perry and McCoy dated in 2008 when the Billionaire MC checked into rehab for a prescription pill addiction.

In the song, Katy writes:

Wanna be your lover, not your fucking mother
You think you're so rock and roll, but you're really just a joke
Had the world in the palm of your hands, but you fucking choked

When asked about the song, Travie replied:

"I heard she put out a song that's about me, or about some old habits or whatever. [And] I look at it like this: I'm just stoked that she finally has a song with some substance on her record. Good job."

    ha! i think this was a funny way to handle it actually and it's pretty much true. except for the part about the song having substance..not seen that yet.

  2. 2


  3. 3

    That song is better than any of the shit music he's EVER put out.

  4. 4

    He's right. She's a fucking no-talent twat.

  5. 5

    HA! awesome response :)

  6. 6

    you know, he's actually right. haha #fail

  7. 7

    Well, she is a good girl but her head its sort of empty. Don't try to challenge clever people… your tits can only go so far..

  8. 8

    haha…he's SO right! I love this! Glad someone's calling her out on her bullshit music.

  9. 9

    yeah it's pretty true. she's catchy but not usually thought provoking or even talking about anything of real substance.

  10. 10

    Well played. and very true about her cheesy music

  11. 11

    She's still a talentless hag and terrible live singer that relies on Dr. Luke and Max Martin to construct the hit songs and will have to spend countless hours having the disgusting Russell Brand climb on top of her and pump her full of retarded ugly baby juice.

    Oh, snap.

  13. 13

    So first she gets engaged to a guy who looks like the missing link, then she rips on a guy who didn't know she exist, now she's ripping on her ex?

    Self esteem issues?

  14. 14

    Envy coming through loud and clear.

  15. 15

    His laugh at the end is priceless! Patronizing in itself!

  16. 16

    who cares whose songs have substance? apparently no one, as lady gaga is quite popular for some pretty lame and empty songs…nothing very meaningful about pokerface or that song just dance…or whatever it's called…and that telephone song, those are all empty meaningless songs…just about everyday crap. people eat that crap up like theres nothing else available to listen to…so clearly having meaningful lyrics doesnt matter to the masses

    well, katy is talented and is handling her career very well…she is not battling any addictions or dealing with abusive boyfriends…she is marrying a guy with much more wit and personality than this douchebag…he looks as if he is half dead.

    i think we all know who the winner of the two is…and it ain't him.

  17. 17

    LMFAO……Team Travie!!!!! Katy Perry sucks major ass, her vocals are so terrible. FINALY somebody else in the business has the balls to say what everyone else, minus the tweens that are "like, her biggest fans", thinks about her 'music'. She is a perfect example of what is wrong with music today. If you got big tits and are willing to dress ridiculously,you got a record deal.

    Re: JeffreyGaga – Viva La White Girl, NewFriend Request, Catch me if you can, Shoot down the stars, Cookie Jar, Cupids chokehold Taxi cab, The Queen and I,…….songs that Travis has done that are a million times better than any crap Katy has put out and called music. Katy is a generic, overrated, pop artist. She fucking sucks, and can't sing. Plain and simple. Her songs are so pointless and have no depth. Which is why when she is performing live on any award shows, she sings a REAL song made by some other artist, and butchers the hell out of it. Katy Sucks musically. Travis doesn't. End of story.

    Re: Devianza
    Definitely agree with you there. Homegirl has some serious self esteem issues. Look at the facts, Russell Brand basically bagged her by calling her hot at the vmas, she's going on Travis when she shouldn't even being thinking about the guy, she's engaged and should be over complaining about him. Same thing goes for the guy who rejected her in high school or w.e. She needs to grow up and get over it!

  19. 19

    Re: samdavid – The difference between Lady Gaga & Katy Perry? Lady Gaga can actually sing.

  20. 20

    I like Katy Perry, but he's right. Her songs are not meaningful at all, with the exception of Circle the Drain. Her songs are light-hearted and fun, but to be honest, they're stupid if you really listen to them. Substance abuse is a serious problem that affects millions of people, so hopefully all he cares about is creating music and staying sober.

  21. 21

    ahahahahhahahaa that was really funny. I always love when he speaks he says the funniest thing. I love from him started when "when i was 17"

  22. 22

    isn't Katie all religious and stuff for a song full of "F" bombs? I can't stand that hypocritical twat. Travie is right. Good luck Katie, hope your tits take you as far as they can since you can't rely on talent.

  23. 23

    HAHAHHAHAHAH so true

  24. 24

    Ha - love it! She has been too full of herself for a while now and it shows - she needs to get over her self-esteem issues for sure - her songs are fair at best and her schtick is getting old fast.

  25. Kate! says – reply to this


    Who cares about his opinion anyway? I just know him as Katy Perry's ex! And he is so ugly…barf!

  26. 26

    Like he's one to talk.

  27. 27

    I don't know who he is, but he's right. I think her music sucks, and I don't get why people think she's hot. In my opinion she's pretty average.

  28. 28

    first of all, i pretty much lost all respect for katy perry when she broke up with him because of the whole going to rehab thing. i've got nothing but mad respect for travis for actually admitting that he has a problem and then moving forward to get help for that problem. there are addicts in my life and it takes a lot for them to admit they have a problem and get help for it and that's a time when they need the people who care about them most in their lives. the fact that she was just like "peace out" shows that she never really cared about him and was only thinking about herself. and what he said about her music is completely true, her songs are obnoxious and overplayed. best of luck to russell brand with that mess for a wife.

  29. 29

    also, it's just shitty as hell to me that she would take travis's addiction problems and write a song about it and basically make money off it. way to be a selfish douchebag, katy.

  30. 30

    Haha, Travie's got her there. I think he handled that pretty well to be honest.

  31. 31

    "Ouch" is all Perez has to say? That was a slam dunk, Perez is NEVER on the guys side. His Vagina envy won't allow it.

  32. 32

    Re: samdavid – well, katy is talented and is handling her career very well…she is not battling any addictions or dealing with abusive boyfriends…

    she may not be battling her own addictions, but she is using someone else's addiction problems to make money. i think that shit is a lot worse than travis's addictions. at least he was willing to admit he had a problem and got help for it and has actually moved on from it. apparently katy is still harping it and using it for her own personal gain when it wasn't even her problem to begin with. she's selfish, end of story.

  33. 33

    hahaha and the funny thing about it is that he's 100% right.

  34. 34

    HAHA! nice.
    perfect response. gotta love the truth.

  35. 35

    HAHAHAHHAHAHA I love both of them. Travie def a lil more, but that only cuz he is HOT!!! I dont think it was ok for her to throw dirty laundry out there like that, i heard he was having pill issues, u can even tell in listening to some of his songs, from GCH, They were lovers and i think private stuff like that should be not talked about in public. If that was me i would feel kind of betrayed, knife in the heart type of pain. You think u kno some ppl, RIGHT!? I think he handled it in a way funny matter and this blow looks arose on her then him.

  36. ozmed says – reply to this


    Haha so true. Katy Perry is boring.

  37. 37

    Awwwww, Travie…jealousy is so unbecoming.

  38. 38

    quite pathetic from katy! uh huh.. and what comes to katy's songs.. they're pretty catchy but there's no meanings in her songs. not something what you could actually listen and just enjoy the beauty of the beats&beauty

  39. 39

    RIGHT ON!!! team TRAVIS!!

  40. 40

    I think it is AWESOME that the majority of the peeps here agree with me; TraviE is 200% right!! Oh, might I add, how the hell does someone as HOT as Katy downgrade from Travie (who isn't all that himself) to Russel Freakin Brand?! LA is crazy. To each his or her own I guess!!

  41. 41

    good for him I hope he realizes hes better off with out a her. Hope he finds someone with a little more substance lol.

  42. 42

    I agree with him.

  43. 43

    He´s high in the interview, so…. what part of the song wasn´t true..?

  44. 44

    at least she has ONE lol

  45. 45

    I don't know who this guy is — but I like him.

  46. 46

    don't you just want to give him a hug.

  47. 47

    Nice one :D I mean, all she seems to be is a real life blow up doll. Especially with those creepy, lifeless bug eyes. Go Travis!

  48. 48

    for all the random people who don't know who he is and question him as an artist despite whatever the lame shit he is trying to spew out now days
    take a listen to
    gym class heroes - for the kids
    and Papercut chronicles which i thought was pretty impressive

    A humorous response sticks the most. 1 up for Travie..

  51. 51

    Re: samdavid I like Katy, but your comment is just dumb. He is definitely the winner, it's sad how many people don't know gym class heroes. His songs have substance. You have no clue about who he is so don't fucking comment on his personality, you just look like an ass. And I agree with the other person on here, it was wrong of her to write about someone else's addiction. She may have been dating him but that is his personal business. If he wrote a song about how she was in bed people would be crying out about how that is crossing the line. Why is she writing songs about him if she is so in love. Her first album had songs with more depth. Oh and lady gaga can sing and has played the piano since age 4, no contest there.

  52. 52

    That's my baby. Love me some Travie!

  53. 53

    Oh, right! because Billionare has much substance!!

  54. 54

    Ouch if Katy had balls she'd still be sore.

  55. 55

    That is the best thing I've read all day… sadly I love the song so making an mp3 of that being the intro to it would be fab.

  56. 56

    Sizzle, sizzle. Burn :)

  57. 57

    great retort.

  58. 58

    Kid Cudi said it best " the music industry is like WWE wrestling…its soo fake". if you believe this tiff, i got a bridge on saturn to sell you. they try to reel you in by making you feel like you're apart of their lives when you're not.

  59. 59

    Since when is it wrong to write a song about your feelings? She's talking about her personal experience with dating an addict and its definitely not something that's easy to talk about.

  60. 60

    Travie should talk he's just as bad as her his rhymes are wack and he talked about her first in his song dont pretend…he wasnt as fucked up tho

  61. 61

    She sucks He shouldnt have put that dirty skank in his video

  62. 62

    agree with him 100% ahhahhaha katy and her career, i mean breasts, take that.

  63. 63

    Well, he's right.

  64. 64

    katy perry : famous because she is pretty, she has nice boobies…

  65. 65

    Re: kaykay85 – Katy Perry does NOT have big tits.

    Put Katy Perry stuffs her bra into google and see the truth about that Jesus camp slag!

    I like how in that s hit "last Friday night" Katy Payola talks about screwing everyone and drunk driving, getting bruises and being all Kesha ho and then she chastises her ex for partying when her songs show she is just a dumb drunk ho.

    Payola Perry used Travis to help build her fame and then traded up for colour and its clear that stuff is going wrong with Brand and yet now its is too late for both of them to back out because they are both such insincere, self loathing narcissists who need the public to like them and see them as controversial and assured. And because his star will look tarnished if dumps her which is why Brand has not dumped her yet. He left the UK because everyone thought he was trash and he has to pretend in the US that he is not. No man who is truly in love talks about all the sex they could be having and did have at one point if they are TRULY in love. That man can't really love anyone but himself. And no man would ever talk about what a "terrible actress" his GF was if her scene was cut from his film like Perry's was. I'm sure it blew chunks because she has a terrible speaking voice but still, you show respect. That scum and his scumette have none-for others OR for themselves.

    KATY PERRRY STUFFS HER BRA!!! Go to listal.. Flat as board without the stuffing!!! KATY PERRY B CUP!!

  72. 72

    eerrr travis

  73. 73

    IDK who he is, but….

    Right on. Nice to see someone else noticed she's fluff

  74. 74

    1. katy perry can sing, but not when shes doing live, fun amazing jumping around shows = entertainment.
    2. her songs arent meaningless, i could name quite a few songs that mean something to either her, or mean something to someone after they've heard them, she writes music about situations alot of people are in or have been in, so no, not meaningless
    3. she does not, rely on her tits, yes theyre amazing, but she doesnt rely on them, even though, she could if she really wanted too :) mmmmm

    the end
