‘Jonas Brothers Grammy Nom A Fluke’

Gym Class Heroes frontman and Katy Perry‘s boyfriend Travis McCoy does not approve of the Grammys Best New Artist nominees. He told PopEater‘I think..

..the Best New Artist thing was definitely a fluke and a f— up on the Grammys’ behalf. We got the Jonas Brothers being nominated for Best New Artist and they’re on their third record.

So I’m like, ‘How the f— does that even make sense? No disrespect to them [JB], but it’s like if you’re gonna give a Grammy to a Best New Artist, why don’t you nominate new artists?’ Travis‘ girlfriend is Katy Perry was not nominated.

  • jess

    that’s exactly what I thought when I heard about there nomination. I mean I love them but there
    not really net not really new artists

  • lovngjonasnky

    Let them have this! Stop raining on JB’s parade for
    once can’t just everyone else in the industry just
    be happy for someone else.To JB fans we all know how
    long they have been around(and everything bout them)
    but 2 the rest of the world they know jack about them.
    That’s why they keep calling them breakout artist.
    Let all the rest of the people in the music bus bitch
    all they want,what do we care, 4 us it’s another nite
    we getta c r guys on tv & tons of coverage about them
    I think it’s a WIN WIN deal 4 us!!!

    Nick’s album doesn’t count as a JONAS one.
    He did his solo career that totally flopped.
    And unlike It’s About Time, you couldn’t even FIND that album which is a fucking shame. ='(

    But I agree.
    I guess they say they are new because this is like the year they made it BIG!
    And Katy should have been nominated.
    She’s a great artist with a great personality.
    I’d love so see more free spirits like her in the industry.

    shut uppp you dumb teenies. i love the jonas brothers but he means they aren’t new artists. but the nominee is for best BREAKTHROUGH artist, so he should realize this year they definitely did breakout and become famous/successful and really got their names out there.

    So true.. he was respectfull
    i was afraid one of the f— was being thrown at them haha..

  • nataliee

    he is just mad cause he knows his girlfriend wont even stand a chance against them.
    But it is true that they arent “new”, but they still do deserve it.

    he’s right.
    it doesn’t make sense that they were nominated…
    and being a fan doesn’t mean you automatically go along with everything they do. that just makes you stupid.

  • TwilightRPattz

    ok i get what he is saying about how the aren’t really new but i think that the Jonas Brothers deserve a Grammy cuz they have worked really hard to get where they r at!!!!!!!!!

    JB is new.
    They just got popular this year.

    yeah, they’ve been around since 06. but they were nobodys. therefore, they are new. in my eyes, at least.

    he’s probably just annoyed becuase his girlfriend isn’t nominated, Hahahah !

    i’m a Jonas Brothers fan and i love them, but he’s right
    they’re not a new band…

    They only have 3 albums out because they’re CONSTANTLY working on new songs. They recorded on that bus and everything. A Little Bit Longer and Jonas Brothers are like a year apart.

    Katy Perry is JUST as popular as JB, probably, she doesn’t cause as much mayhem.

    agreed.
    this is their THIRD ALBUM.
    they’re not fucking break out artists!

    i thought it was pretty widely known that by best new artist, they mean newly popular.
    anyway, after the magic that was as cruel as school children, travis can do no wrong in my mind, so it’s whatever.

    andd best new artist goes for something that really puts an artist on the map like a little bit longer did yeah they were around for three years but they really became known this year so these people need to just stfu already and get over it katy perry didnt deseve to be nominated for best new artist jb did!

  • sdsjod

    IF THEY LIKED THE JONAS BROTHERS’ MUSIC THEY WOULD
    HAVE REALIZED THAT 3 YEARS AGO. THE OTHER ARTISTS
    NOMINATED IN THE CATEGORY ARE NOT HUGE FAMOUS
    ESTABLISHED ARTISTS. THEY ARE JUST NEW ARTISTS WHO
    HAVE GOOD MUSIC. THE JONAS BROTHERS BEING NOMINATED IS
    CRAP. THEY ARE JUST BEING INFLUENCED BY EVERYONE.

    ok they really just become HUGE in the past year. at least they have good normal songs and not songs about freakin making out with girls…

    honestly, the Jonas Brothers must be doing something right :) to be nominated and have the success they do now. Sorry they dont sing about kissing lesbians or something :) Best New Artist? No matter what the Jonas Brothers are new so suck it.

    just because jonas fans are used to them

    they SO NOT DESERVE A NOMINATION EVEN AT ALL

    I can see where he’s coming from.
    the Jonas Brothers have been around awhile,
    but he’s just mad because his untalented slutty girlfriend wasn’t nominated.
    Her songs are overrated, overplayed, & just annoying as hell!

    I agree and im a BIG JB fan but Katy Perry doesn’t deserve it. I think Colbie Calliat deserves it her songs “Bubbly”, “Realize”, “The Little Things” and many singles are SUPER Famous all around the world and she doesn’t get much credit much.

  • http://oceanup.com victoria.

    haha hes jealous?
    who cares they deserve it :)

  • lesha

    True; but, according to the Grammy website the award is “For a new artist who releases, during the Eligibility Year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist.”
    Their recording this year established them..
    —–

    that does make sense but like someone said, it was their last album that pretty much established them, not this one. i’m pretty sure i heard S.O.S a whole lot more on the readio, then any of their songs off the new album (even though that still wasn’t very often.)

  • jonasgomezlovato

    i agree with him 99%. They arent big enough to be up for any of the other awards. So new artist fits them best.

  • Megan

    The Jonas Brothers did not ‘just’ make it in 2008.
    They made it in 2007. When they were on Hannah Montana, and the Best of Both Worlds tour.
    Sure, they are way more popular now, but they were stilll extremely popular & well-known since 2007.

  • Anonymous

    I agree with him, actually.
    No hate to the Jonas Brothers, because I think their music is amazing.

    But they aren’t new.

    Neither’s Katy Perry, but I don’t think that’s what he was getting at. I don’t think he said that for the sake of his girlfriend.

  • http://google.com haha

    i agreeeeeeeeee

  • Sammy

    Because 2008 was when the Jonas Brothers hit ultimate fame…

  • Anonymous

    i love jb and everything, but this is kinda true.
    yea they’ve been around for 3 years..

    but year 1 honestly doesn’t count, cause they didnt do shit. (not that they didn’t do anything, obviously that’s how they got to where they are now, but that their FIRST record didnt do shit lol)

    year two they starting becoming very successful and that jumpstarts everything.

    year three is when they start becoming more mature and pretty much grammy eligable. i mean, it would be kinda weird to be nominated RIGHT when they’re new and somewhat successful right?

    i personally think now is a good time to be nominated!

  • Anonymous

    not just a great voice, but she’s so freakin awesome! lol

    i like jb being nominated, but definitely katy should have been nominated as well!!

  • it’s me bitches

    just because she’s only had two SINGLES doesn’t mean she’s only had two SONGS.

    really, you people are so stupid.

  • :) yeaaah boy.

    yeah because being with hollywood records is so hard. ooo hoo. give me a fuckin break. once your signed to disney your pretty much HANDED a career. that’s what they do. you could look like total shitbags *cough jonas bros *cough, but with cheesy catchy music, you can become huge.
    other artist in that category deserve it wayyyyyyy more than them. like someone said the other people songs actually have a meaning to them. yeah i know about “a little bit longer” but it’s too repetitive and its been drained for all its worth.
    ————

    Travis is 100% right. Oh and jb didn’t get famous for their new album, they got famous cause Miley practically threw them into the spotlight and they used her and dumped her. Bam, then they were famous. But I seriously don’t get how they got nominated for a Grammy. Anybody who actually has a brain knows that the jb nomination was a bunch of bull shit.

    ————

    hollywood records just automatically makes a person famous right? UHM; NO!? jordan pruitt has been signed with them, and yeah, you hear her name every once in while, but is she really that big? didn’t think so, thanks. you wanna see someone who cannot peform live? their career was handed to them? i’m a fan of taylor swift, but what about her? she’s one of the worst performers live i’ve ever heard, and she’s performing at the grammys.

    MILEY THROUGH THEM INTO THE SPOTLIGHT? WHAAAAAAAT?! dude, get your facts straight. they had fans paying to go to the bobw tour, FOR THE JONAS BROTHERS. they would’ve gotten big regardless, so good theory. NOT.
    breakthrough artists people.

    wow. all these people hating on jb obviously care enough about them to post negative comments on a post ABOUT them. first of all to the “fans” saying they don’t deserve the nomination; who in the hell do you think you are? DONT CALL YOURSELF A FAN. you obviously DONT support them, and you dont encourage them; you’re a bull shit fan. that’s what you are. nick’s first album? THAT WAS A SOLO ALBUM, OF HIS OWN, LIKE 5 OR 6 YEARS AGO. it’s about time? hmmm…well, considering they are not with that label anymore, that doesn’t really work does it? they started getting bigger when they released their self titled cd, but the BROKE OUT, and really started becoming big with a little bit longer. that’s the cd they were ranked so highly in rolling stone for, thats the cd that made them bigger. so stfu, seriously. katy perry is a slut, i’m sorry, but she is. you see her, and she’s always wearing some small piece of crap outfit, that looks like lingere. she kissed a girl, and she liked it, so obvious, thats why this guy is buggin.he’s not gettin some, some other chick is.

    jonas brothers own. (:

  • allie

    haha; what an ass.
    seriously, wow.
    just cuz your lesbian girlfriend wasn’t nominated…
    (i know she’s not lesbian, but she sure as heck acts like it…)
    he’s going to dis the jonas brothers?
    for getting a grammy nomination?
    the thing people have to realize, is for the music industry, the are new artists. they were saw as a disney band for the past year. and now they’re going somewhere, so they’re getting recognized for it. and they totally deserve that!

    he should go screw himself, stupid ass.

  • kelly

    hahaha, this guy makes me laugh. he is just saying all this stuff because his girlfriend didn’t get nominated.

    and they’re not “brand new” this year, but being about for three years doesn’t exactly make them old.

  • Alexa

    Lol.
    Wtf?
    No one even likes Gym Class Heroes anymore so no one caaares.

  • Anthony

    Grammy rules state (saying this in a way you stupid jb fans can understand) that you do not have to be new perse!
    By new they mean when they got popular. 2008 was the year that GayB, i mean JB blew up and got really popular so that’s how they got nominated.

    It was a fluke though, it was mandatory for them to be nominated because if they didn’t it would have been retarded. They had to nominate jb because of how popular they got. THEY DO NOT DESERVE IT. The grammy awards is about REAL music and music with depth not “im slippin into the lava”. They got nominated only because of their success. No one takes them seriously and they are ALWAYS the butt of everyone’s jokes at award shows. Look at the people their with Adele, Duffy people who can actually sing and people who actually have music with meaning.

    sure they have had three albums but they were barely known for their 1st album. How does he know they have 3 albums?…he must have done his homework ;) and it’s getting annoying how everyone thinks JB shouldn’t have been nominated.

    Isn’t Katy on her second??? I think people should really READ and UNDERSTAND what the category best new artist represents.

    “Best New Artist-for a new artist who releases, during the Eligibility Year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist.”

    Although I like Katy’s music and believe she should’ve been nominated as well, people like Travis and Perez are making change my mind on her. I don’t hear her complaining why should anyone else?

    I mean he has a good point and I love the Jonas Brothers but, I know they have been around since 2005 but they got really popular this year and they were noticed the most.

    they got POPULAR this year.
    which as someone said,
    thats what the Grammy rules state.
    honestly.
    they are so hard working.
    and they really deserve it.

    to be quite frank,
    no one that is nominated in the same category works 1/2 as hard as they do.
    from dealing with CRAZY STALKERLIKE FANS to
    taking their time out to meet hundreds of fans a day
    to non stop touring at such a young age.

    it really takes a toll on you.

    they work so hard
    they honestly deserve it.

    and im really proud that they got this.

  • Anonymous

    they may be on their third album but face it their first ,”It’s About Time”, wasnt a success, their second, “Jonas Brothers”, came at the end of last year so they weren’t really recognized, which brings us to album three, “A Little Bit Longer”, they are finally huge!
    Just because his little girlfriend didn’t make the list, doesn’t mean its f–ked up!

  • Halle

    i agree with this man.

    the jonas brothers being nominated is the biggest insult to music.

  • sam

    The grammy awards is about REAL music and music with depth not “im slippin into the lava

    ____________________________________________________
    ok you are just saying that because they are the jonas brothers. there arde si many songs that people love that have no depth at all. “i kissed a girl and i liked it” love that sonf but no depth. there are so many other songs so think before you say something and just say because they are the jonas brothers and see who else does that too. cause i can bet that there are a ton of other artist that do that are really big.

  • Jonas

    Wait she has 3 songs lol I forgot about one

  • Andrea

    He’s right. I didn’t get it either when I first heard that they were nominated for Best New Artist. I mean, a Grammy nomination is a Grammy nomination. And they deserve this recognition, 110%. But maybe in a different category, like Best Pop Album or something. I don’t know. I’ll be super happy if JB wins. I want them to win. They’re just not new artists. Part of me feels like that particular title should go to an artist that actually fits that bill. I’m torn.

    And props to Travis for knowing that they’re on their third album. Haha.

    lmfao, well he’s right.
    they aren’t that new.

    well not really their last album made them like big but this album made them bigger but still they really shouldn’t get it cause they aren’t new they are what i think like 3 years old now just because they are really big now doesn’t mean anything they shouldn’t get im a fan in all but they really should give it to people that are new im not saying that they are bad they are really good but travis is right its for new artist and they really aren’t new they became all big because of the hannah montana concert which was last year so if this was last year i would be like they deserve it but its not

    true that

  • Anonymous

    okay they have been playing since 2005 but alot of other people have been performing along time who have been nominated as best breakout in the past. it’s because their big break was recent. no one really knew them til 2007

  • taylorr,

    firrst ?!

    & screw you, your jealous.

  • mileyfan7

    LOL!!!!

    I totally agree with Travis!

    Katy Perry should’ve been freaking nominated, and she should’ve freaking won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    lol, who did win anyway?

  • http://hannabethstyle.com hailie

    that is so true. theyve been around since 2005

  • hallie

    I am not a big jb fan, but i dont deny that they are good. But i just think it is silly to nominate people for new artist that aren’t new, like when miley cyrus was on new artist for like VMA’s or something… it just seems stupid to not even follow the title of the category. Again, no disrespect to jb, but they just dont esactly fit in the category.

    the jonas brothers are still talented.

  • http://www.bopmag.com Kay

    You Jonas fans may think they deserve to be nominated,(as much as I hate them they did work hard)but do they deserve to win? I mean it’s not like they’ll be the next Beatles or Rolling Stone?

    yeah because being with hollywood records is so hard. ooo hoo. give me a fuckin break. once your signed to disney your pretty much HANDED a career. that’s what they do. you could look like total shitbags *cough jonas bros *cough, but with cheesy catchy music, you can become huge.
    other artist in that category deserve it wayyyyyyy more than them. like someone said the other people songs actually have a meaning to them. yeah i know about “a little bit longer” but it’s too repetitive and its been drained for all its worth.

  • badd girl!

    hes funny lmaooo i like && luv jb but its true so calm dat shit down its like nobody cant say shit about jb or we going 2 hell or sumthing its crazy lmaooo

  • Chelsea

    I agree! i love the Jonas brothers, but they have been around for 3 years already.

  • lesha

    eh whatever. it happened. people are going to have to get over that one. they are nominated folks. obviously people in within the industry so reason enough for it to happen, otherwise it wouldn’t have. if anything, they are the ones who aren’t going to discriminate simply because they are a “disney band” so good for them. i wish them the best of luck.

  • lauren

    this is soooooo true! and for the third comment…JB does not have talent. what can they do? all nick does is
    wail like a dying chimpanze and joe just stands there looking good and singing completely out of key..

  • katee.

    they have a very valid point. and i was actually wondering it to.
    not that they don’t deserve a grammy nom.
    but. they’re not really new artists.

  • blah

    Travis is 100% right. Oh and jb didn’t get famous for their new album, they got famous cause Miley practically threw them into the spotlight and they used her and dumped her. Bam, then they were famous. But I seriously don’t get how they got nominated for a Grammy. Anybody who actually has a brain knows that the jb nomination was a bunch of bull shit.

    I saw Duffy when she opened for Coldplay and she was absolutely horrendous live. She has an interesting voice that suits her song “Mercy” well, but the rest of her performance was like nails on a chalkboard. I was highly disappointed.

    So, for everyone saying the Jonas Brothers aren’t talented or they don’t deserve it, don’t be so quick to assume that everyone else nominated deserves it more.

  • Anonymous

    THATS A GOOD POINT!

    BUT…

    they havent become popular since this year! so yeah

    katy perry has only had two songs!

    Lets get the fact straight. They got nomaited for the wrong category and grammys is going to suck this year. That is so true! Like cmon TAYLOR SWIFT! if she doesn’t sing for the grammys i am not watching it!

    I love the JB.
    But I definitely agree.
    I find it odd.

  • PA

    doesn’t he know the expectations you have to pass to get nominated for a grammy.
    The Jonas Brothers passed does expectations and that’s why they are nominated…..DUH!!

    The Jonas Brothers are not new artists…been around since 05.
    They’re getting old, they’re overated, and they suck now. Sorry. It’s my opinion.

  • Cheril

    as much as i love the jonas brothers and couldnt be happier that they got their first grammy nom. he has a good point. they deserve to be nominated but not for best new artist, cause there not new, theyve been around for a few years. there just now started to take over the world (joking) but they have had three cds – and im a lil suprised travis knew that hahah- but either way i do hope they win, they deserve a grammy. :)
    —————————————————-

    I totally agree with you, i was going to say the exact same thing. They arent new at all, but im glad they are nominated. and i also got surprised that travis knew they had 3 albums, haha. and he said NO OFFENSE TO THE JONAS BROTHERS (also known as, im not saying they are bad artists), so people should stop saying he’s jealous, because i really doubt that.

  • lindsey

    they’re on their third record. Actually they are on their fourth if you count the one that columbia records did. Also nick jonas did one which is 4. They aint new. and its not fair to the other nomines because jonas brothers get an advtantage and a disvantage. disvatnage may not win because not their first record may win because more expernice. WE NEED TAYLOR SWIFT!

  • It’s Brynn Bitches(:

    shut uppp you dumb teenies. i love the jonas brothers but he means they aren’t new artists. but the nominee is for best BREAKTHROUGH artist, so he should realize this year they definitely did breakout and become famous/successful and really got their names out there.

  • Cyn

    oh god. thats so stupid.
    they don’t count as artists to the grammys until they sell a certain number of albums.
    thats why this last album counted and theyre “new” artists.
    Katy will be up for it later..

  • ah!

    the band itself isn’t new,
    but their recognization and
    fame is.
    suck on that.

  • Sal

    katy perry has only had two songs!

    That doesn’t matter.
    IKAG was like the biggest
    hit of the summer.
    She should’ve been nominated.

    i love travie to death
    but he’s being a bit bitter
    but i do understand where hes coming from
    its just like when zac efron won for best new actor at the movie awards for hairspray when he had already been in HSM
    ________________________
    thats a little different though, considering Hairspray was his first motion picture role, HSM before that point was “made for tv”

  • Samantha.

    So true. They are not new AT ALL and are way too overrated and full of themselves now. They don’t deserve it.

  • kelley

    hes just jealous, they totally deserve it

  • Sneha

    Yea I see where your coming from but they did have a pretty tough time getting started, they were dropped from their first record label after a couple of months.. and they were struggling with bills for a pretty long time.. I know that may be nothing compared to other artists but its not like one day they woke up and were like “yea lets start a band” then flew to Disney, signed on to holly wood records, and then bam were here today and the Jonas brothers are the biggest things since BSB…

    Wikipedia Source: Grammy Award for Best New Artist

    For Best New Artist: “The official guidelines are as follows: (For a new artist who releases, during the Eligibility Year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist.) Note that this is not necessarily the first album released by an artist.”

    Face it, whether you like them or not, this year has been THE year of the Jonas Brothers. They’ve gone from little disney pop stars to mega international fame, and for more than just music, therefore, they’re technically “new”… i’ll agree that they’re not as new as some of the other nominees but this award isn’t for newest artist, it’s for the best new artist.

    I LOVE JB BUT THIS IS SO TRUE. “DEDICATED” JB FANS WAKE UP AND STOP COMPLIMENTING EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO THEM- IT WONT GET YOU AND NICK JONAS DOWN THE AISLE ANY FASTER, OR AT ALL FOR THAT MATTER. THEY TOTS DESERVE A GRAMMY FOR ALL THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS BUT THIS ISNT THE CATEGORY (SP?) FOR THEM.

    he’s just saying that cause his girlfriend didnt get nominated.
    if she would have, i bet he wouldnt be saying shit.
    JB deserve that nomination.
    and its BREAK THROUGH ARTIST, NOT NEW.

    Yeah i thought the same thing when i found out they were being nominated.I mean I love the JoBros and all but their not really new.

    i love Katy Perry should have been nominated

    i heard the reason JB was nominated was because they just became popular this year, but even if they were new this year I do not think they deserved to be nominated. Their music is not really good. It is cute and all, but i donno.

  • wassy

    True. 10000 percent true. This is their 3 record over all and nicks fourth record. Its not fair to the other nomines who only had their first record. which means Jobros have way more expernice. It doesn’t matter if they werent knnown before and their breakout year is now. Is the title break out star NO! its best new artisit! Katy Perry should of be nomaited with the Jobros! whatever grammys is going to suck this year anwyas no taylor swift!

  • um,

    wanna get it right people?

    best knew artist who is at the grammy’s.
    who has started to get hot,
    so you would be saying twilight would be “new” if it was a best new movie,

    thats beeen around for years.

    its just their new album.

  • ___ :)

    HELLUHHHH JEALOUS!

  • wow

    he’s jealous. his girlfriend kissed a girl and she liked it, i would be mad too.

  • Sneha

    I love JB to death but agreed with Travis.. they’ve been around since ’05
    I want Adele to take it home.. shes amazing and a jonas fan too haha.
    But considering the fact that they basically exploded into the biggest things, this year and last year, 2 sold out tours you gotta give them something..

  • hallie

    i need to learn to put my remarks all into the same post… but anyways!

    regarding miley having covered Katy’s songs, those were from a demo katy did or something, i dont think that was an actual record release. katy sings back-up on some of miley’s songs so mileys producers obviously knew katy.

  • wassy

    Hello its NOT BREAKOUT STAR ITS BEST NEW ARTIST IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

  • It’s Brynn Bitches(:

    go the fuck away you dumbass teeny. his band is just fine. he IS not jealous, and if you weren’t an idiot you’d realize he wasn’t even insulting them. gahh, people like are are sooo effin annoying and dumb that it’s almost funny.

    True; but, according to the Grammy website the award is “For a new artist who releases, during the Eligibility Year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist.”
    Their recording this year established them..

    soo!
    that’s because they’re talented! and new they category say BEST NEW Artist, Jb is one of the best, they are new, and they are artist they fit on this nomination!!

  • SKDJ

    it doesn’t matter if she has had only two songs that made it big you guys. That is a lot. It is about good music and a good album. Look at other the nominees. A lot of them have no hugee hits but their music is good. That is what it is about.

  • nikki

    I agree. I love JB. And I love Katy Perry but I think Katy should have gotten the nom. Jb has been “new” for 3 years.
    Also I love how he (Trav) reconized there on there 3rd album and he respects them.

  • nikki

    i agree, and i’m a HUGE JB fan.

  • Beatriz

    i agree.
    the Jonas boys are not new on the music scene. at all.
    they have 3 cds! and have been out there for over 3 years!!!
    i DO think they are grammy deserving, but not for ”new artist”

    They aren’t “new”, exactly, their fame has just escalated a lot this year.
    It would make more since if it was 07.

  • Joanie

    People shouldn’t make statements like that if they don’t know how the Grammy’s work. Go read the rules. If an artist has 10 albums but didn’t make a name for themselves until the 11th then they can be nominated as best new artist. It is when the artist establishes a name for themselves. At least this is what I get from actually knowing how to read.

  • dsjsaoi

    you guys, it the other nominees didn’t “make it big”
    they are just new. If the grammys like the jonas
    brothers’ music they should have realized that before they were
    known some what.
