Mccoy Releasing Perry Mixtape

GYM CLASS HEROES star TRAVIS MCCOY has recovered from his last break-up - he's titled his new mixtape FORGETTING KATY PERRY.
MCCoy and Perry ended their relationship in April last year (09) but by December (09), the pop star had become engaged to funnyman Russell Brand following a whirlwind romance.
The rapper admits he was stunned by how quickly his ex bounced back from their split, and he's now channelled his heartbreak into a new solo project inspired by Brand's movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The 2008 comedy centres around a man struggling to recover from a break-up.
MCCoy tells Complex.com, "I think it was inspired by that whole situation. At the end of the day, I think anyone who has been thorough some s**t 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."
MCCoy admits he is no longer in touch with Perry, but is convinced she's heard about his project: "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."
