Travie McCoy wants to be a billionaire, so freakin’ bad — and, we think he’s on his way.
Tall, dark and handsome, this talented ladies man was born and raised in Geneva, New York, where he met Matt McGinley in his gym class. The duo bonded over a shared love of music and started a band that later became Gym Class Heroes, which burst into the mainstream in 2007 with the No. 1 hit “Cupid’s Chokehold.”
Now, he’s topping the music charts with his own song. “I Want To Be A Billionaire” [watch video].
Standing 6′ 5″ (see, we said he was tall), with loads of charm and charisma (and a hot collection of tattoos), Travie is one of music’s most recognized celebrities, which is why it’s no surprise that he’s dated several famous gals.
His latest main squeeze was Katy Perry — who he blasts in one of his new songs.
In it, Travie rants about Katy supposedly being with another man and calls her a ‘little brat.’ The song, “Don’t Pretend,” also features lyrics like, ‘Little miss teary eyes you have no reason to lie to me. I finally realize why you can’t look eye to eye with me. And I knew about him the whole time — the hotels, phone calls, psshhh the whole nine.’
Look out, ladies! This guy’s a fireball — who is raking in the big bucks. And, not only does he have one of the hottest new singles on the airwaves, he’s hot and single himself.
