Katy Perry, whose ode to lipstick lesbianism captivated the Earth this summer, has decided to play it straight on her decision of life partner. Per Contact Music, the songstress is engaged to marry Gym Class Heroes MC Travis McCoy. ??The couple has been dating since 2007 AD. The story goes that Travis McCoy proposed by giving what the kids are calling a 'smooch' to Katy Perry and had a ring in his mouth. Presumably, she cleaned saliva off of the ring, tried it for fit and said "yayer." Leave it to the Gym Class Heroes to prove reiterated what Jermaine Stewart taught us 22 years ago, you really don't have to take your clothes off to have a good time.
In addition to their dating and engagement, McCoy (who's nickname is Schleprok per Wikipedia) and Perry do some other stuff together. She was in the video for "Cupid's Chokehold" (Gym Class Heroes' breakaway hit) and is curiously on the Vans Warped Tour. Perry is a little bit of a surprise for the tour, back in the day we always had the feeling that Blink 182 was a little too pop-y for the punk/ ska/ skate-fest. And Kate Perry doesn't even have a sleeve tattoo.
And because he's a big, effing deal, McCoy has spouted (per the NY Daily News) off that he thinks the Grammy committee made a big mistake in not nominating Katy Perry for coveted Best New Artist award which those lovable/ harmless Jonas Brothers are liable to run away with. Perry is nominated for the Best Female Pop Performance which we suspect she'll win. ??It's really been a banner year for women with dark hair and bangs. Katy Perry, Diablo Cody, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens and that cute girl at the Apple store, you know the one with the tattoos.
