Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes has released a statement in defense of his girlfriend Katy Perry who was criticized by her own parents for the profane lyrics of her song "I Kissed a Girl". McCoy admits that he is stunned by the parents' comment that dub the song as "shameful" and a "disgrace".

Earlier this week, Katy's mom Mary Hudson who is a devoted preacher told DailyMail.co.uk that she hates the song and that it "clearly promotes homosexuality and its message is shameful and disgusting." Mary added that she fears Katy "has been led astray by the Hollywood crowd," and that she prays "all the time that God will work through her and help her find salvation."

Travis who has known Katy for more than three years and given her a promise ring said that he didn't expect that her evangelist mom will speak up her mind regarding the song to the media. He said, "Her parents are actually really cool. They are ministers. They never shunned her for her music or her lyrics."

Katy herself has released her statement regarding the rift with her parents, simply saying "I stopped trying to change them at 21." Katy started her pop career in her early teens by singing in churches and restaurants. She also released a gospel album in 2001 under the name Katy Hudson.

"I Kissed a Girl" has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for seven consecutive weeks. It contains the lyrics "I kissed a girl and I liked it / The taste of her cherry chapstick".

Fuck off bgen22, are you also a minister??!!! in the words of hostilitymuch?....damn, take the stick out of your ass...please!!! is a great song for those who actually respect other peaples sexuality/preferences. And when she says "I stopped trying to change them (her parents) at 21" it means that she stopped looking for understanding, idiot!!

i think that travis has done a really nice thing by sticking up for katy. Katy has a lot of talent and her parents should respect that and stop trying to change her.

Katy Perry said, "I stopped trying to change them (her parents) at 21". HAHA, yeah right. I'm sure she knows so much about life. To help write a song as annoying as that she must be very immature and have a lot in common with the other idiots out there who actually like the song. Give me a break.
