Katy Perryâ€™s New Perfume Is Named After a Taylor Swift ‘Bad Blood’ Lyric
Unless youâ€™ve been hiding under a rock for the past three years, then you know that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have bad blood.
In fact, as you may recall, Taylor Swift even wrote a song about it (although she swearsÂ it’s not about one person in particular).
While Katy Perryâ€™s rumored reaction song never materialized, it seems like Katy has finally figured out her own way to throw some not-so-thinly veiled shade Taylorâ€™s way: with a new perfume.
Thatâ€™s right, celebrity feuds are extending to fragrances now.
To borrow a popular phrase, what a time to be alive.
Not only does Katy Perry have a new perfume, but itâ€™s called â€œMad Love,â€ and if that means nothing to you then youâ€™re obviously not a Taylor Swift fan and/or donâ€™t listen to music, in which case, please let me explain the significance to you.
So you remember how I said earlier that â€œBad Bloodâ€ was about Katy Perry?
Well, one of the lyrics in the chorus just so happens to be, â€œWell baby, now we got bad blood / you know it used to be mad love.”Â
Crazy complicated, right?
Of course, seeing as Katyâ€™s 2015 scent was called â€œMad Potionâ€ this could all be one big coincidence, but seeing as Katy Perry isnâ€™t dumb or oblivious, we highly doubt it.
Guess the ball is back in Taylor’s court, just in time for a new album cycle.
