Katy Perry may sing about kissing girls, but she’s very much in love with a member of the opposite sex. The singer has been dating boyfriend Travis McCoy for the past three years and the Gym Class Heroes front man says Perry’s racy lyrics are just fine with him!
"This year has been crazy for her but she’s definitely rolled with the punches," McCoy tells Extra in an interview set to air tonight. "A lot of people were criticizing the content of her music and what not, but at the end of the day, choose your adventure. She’s doing great. I’m proud of her."
McCoy says Katy’s parents–both preachers–have been surprisingly ok with their daughter’s controversial song "I Kissed a Girl."
"Her parents are actually really cool. They are ministers. They never shunned her for her music or her lyrics."
As for the future of this rock n’ roll couple, McCoy revealed he recently gave Perry a promise ring saying, "It was a way showing her that I wanted to take it to another level. We’re not engaged or anything. We’ve been seeing each other for the past three years. I felt compelled it was time to solidify things so I bought her a ring."
Although the couple has no plans to marry, they’ll soon be spending 24/7 together on tour. "Its cool to get to see her perform," McCoy says. "It’s cool to have the girlfriend on tour."
McCoy admits he did miss one concert in which Perry kissed a fan during a performance. But when Extra showed McCoy the YouTube video, he shrugged saying, "Whatever. It wasn’t a dude."
