Travie's Girlfriend Gets Gym Class Heroes' Approval

Travis McCoy's Gym Class Heroes bandmates approve of his girlfriend Katy Perry - because she's a vast improvement on his exes.

McCoy has been dating the I Kissed A Girl singer for two years and she has become one of the boys on the tourbus.

Bandmate Eric Roberts says, "Anyone who can handle Trav has my respect to the utmost."

And drummer Matt McGinley adds, "He's had some terrible girlfriends. Katy's the only one we like."


Eric Roberts Likes Chicken

Buzznet caught up with Eric Roberts of Gym Class Heroes on the last day of Warped Tour last Sunday. He talks about his love for Chicken and Sumo Sundays.

When we asked Eric which band he was most impressed by this summer on Warped, he said Bring Me the Horizon.

Of course we could sit here and re-cap the whole interview for you, but then it wouldn't be much fun for you to watch it?!?

Travie Promised to Marry Katy Perry

Katy Perry has been marked for marriage - her boyfriend has given the singer a promise ring. Gym Class Heroes star Travis MCCoy insists he's not ready to wed the pretty I Kissed a Girl singer - but he plans to one day.

He says, "I gave her a promise ring. It was a way of showing her that I wanted to take it (relationship) to another level. We're not engaged or anything but we've been seeing each other for the past three years…and I felt it was time to solidify things, so I bought her a ring."

Exclusive: Gym Class Heroes Feat. The-Dream - "Cookie Jar"

Gym Class Heroes have premiered a new video for their 2nd single "Cookie Jar" which will be listed in their fourth album "The Quilt". The song features rapper The-Dream singing the chorus with the band's frontman Travis McCoy. Their brand new set is scheduled for release on September 9.

The music video has been shot by director Dale "Rage" Resteghini. It has The-Dream as a guest star and hip hop producer DJ Clinton Sparks as a cameo. They implicitly convey a peace message through the video by showing two-fingers peace sign to the camera.

The band will shortly kick off a series of shows, which is started in Los Angeles, California on August 17. Then, they are scheduled to wrap it up at Washington Avenue Armory in Albany, New York on November 1. In addition, the band will also co-headline a tour with The Roots on October 2 in Baltimore. A complete detail of their shows, including the time and place of the gigs, can be checked on their MySpace page.

Travie McCoy: "I Snapped When I Was Called Something Vulgar'"

GYM CLASS HEROES star TRAVIS MCCOY has spoken for the first time since assaulting a fan at a show in St Louis, Missouri, confessing he lost control of his emotions.
The frontman was arrested on a third degree assault charge immediately after the July (08) concert following his microphone attack on a fan.

He reportedly took offence to an audience member who called him a "f**king ignorant n**ger". MCCoy's girlfriend, Katy Perry, has since defended her man, insisting, "There are definitely two sides to every story and you always have to take (that) into account." And now the hip-hop star himself is speaking out.

During an awkward chat with rocker Pete Wentz on Friday night's (15Aug08) FN MTV show, MCCoy said, "I was just called something very disgusting and vulgar and something just snapped in me and I kind of went off the handle."

Gym Class Heroes to Go on Tour with The Roots

Last year, when Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy was talking about his band's upcoming album The Quilt, he spent an inordinate amount of time touting his "lyrical genius." So it makes sense that when booking the tour in support of the record — which hits stores September 9 — GCH went out and got one of the most lyrical of geniuses to co-headline. Actually, they got a whole crew of them.

The Roots have been tapped to share the bill with Gym Class on their Quilt Tour, which kicks off October 3 in Baltimore and will hit cities throughout North America before coming to a close November 1 in Albany, New York. The groups will alternate headlining duties on a city-by-city basis. Up-and-coming British R&B star Estelle will serve as support on all dates.

For McCoy, the opportunity to share the stage with the Legendary Roots Crew is a dream come true. Though, to be honest, he's also pretty excited to wrap GCH's stint on the Warped Tour (which ends Sunday in Carson, California) and get back to playing clubs with some of that sweet, sweet air conditioning.

"Warped Tour was great, but we can't wait to get back into venues that actually have roofs over our heads and aren't 110 degrees," McCoy told MTV News. "Touring with the Roots was something we've wanted to do for a while, and we're real excited it's finally happening. And Estelle opening things up? It's over! Tour of the year! Fans are in store for a real special treat. Who knows what's gonna happen out there."

Presale tickets will be available Tuesday (August 12) through GCH's Varsity Club fan site. Tickets for all dates go on sale to the general public August 15-16.

One dollar from each ticket sold will go directly to a charity in each group's hometown: the Geneva, New York, Boys & Girls Club and Philadelphia's Triple Threat Foundation, a youth-mentoring organization that focuses on education and athletics.

Gym Class Heroes - Cookie Jar lyrics

Gym class heroes..
(The Dream)
Radiokilla killa

Hahaha You know what it is
Gym class heroes, the dream
Its hard to look innocent when I got cookie crumbs all over my face

(The Dream)
I like girls
They like me
They look so good
In their satin jeans
Want you to be the one
And my only
I want be faithful
But I cant keep my hands out the cookie jar.
My hands, my hands, my ha uh my hands
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Cant keep my hands, my hands my hands out the cookie jar.

You see I got this problem
I need help tryna solve it
Cos meeting after meeting and Im still a cookie whore
You can hide them, Imma find them, on the counter, in the closet
And Ill say I aint do it with my face covered in chocolate
My girl be setting booby traps
To catch me eating Scooby snacks
I left crumbs in the bed once
But I told her I was through with that
She still dont be believing me
And I guess that Im cool with that
But I got a sweet tooth, thatll never come loose
And the truth of the matter is.

(The Dream)
I like girls
They like me
They look so good
In their satin jeans
Want you to be the one
And my only
I want be faithful
But I cant keep my hands out the cookie jar.
My hands, my hands, my ha uh my hands
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Cant keep my hands, my hands my hands out the cookie jar.

I got a thing for Milano, Biscotti Italianos
And I never turn down some Oreos if you got them
Butter Pecan Puerto Rican,
Or them Oatmeal Raisin Asians.
Hazelnut Brazilians,
Macadamia Caucasians,
Double stuffed or thin mint
It dont matter you getting it
Cos I got a sweet tooth thatll never come loose
And the fact of the matter is.

(The Dream)
I like girls
They like me
They look so good
In their satin jeans
Want you to be the one
And my only
I want be faithful
But I cat keep my hands out the cookie jar.
My hands, my hands, my ha uh my hands
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Cant keep my hands, my hands my hands out the cookie jar.

Im a monster for these cookies
Im a beast for theyre treats
An animal for theyre crackers
Head to feet they so damn sweet
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my ha uh my
Cant keep my hands, my hands, my hands out the cookie jar.

And then you have it haha
I tried my best
I went to cookie anonymous
I guess Im a failure
I cant seem to keep my damn hands out the cookie jar but,
It is what it is

Travie Denies New Album Is About Infidelity

Blogs have certainly leveled the playing field as far as reactions go — if an artist doesn’t like something someone has written, they can come to their own defense within minutes. Well, Gym Class Heroes‘ Travis McCoy has done just that in response to a Billboard report about The Quilt, his band’s follow-up to 2006’s As Cruel as School Children.

The article, which Billboard published on Friday, says that on the group’s previous album, McCoy’s lyrical “vice of choice was cocaine” and on this one “it’s women,” referring not only to the first single, “Cookie Jar,” but two other tracks, titled “Innocent” and “Come Clean.”

By Saturday, McCoy had responded on his personal blog with an entry entitled “Billboard ‘REVIEW.’” In it, he calls Billboard one of “the most prominent music publications in the industry,” but goes on to question their musical-interpretation abilities. “Do these people really listen to the music,” he asks, “or do they just skim through it?” He admits that “Coming Clean” can be “misleading,” as it refers to his “affair with music,” but with the exception of “Cookie Jar” he says the theme of the record has little to nothing to do with infidelity, as Billboard speculated.

As fans await The Quilt’s arrival on September 9, McCoy leaves the interpretation to them, saying, “I like to let our albums be somewhat of a ‘choose your own adventure’ listen.”
