And it continues! Katy Perry released a perfume called ‘Mad Love’ earlier this month…which just so happens to be a lyric from Taylor Swift’s hit ‘Bad Blood’…which just so happens to reportedly be about their feud. Is Katy totally dissing Tay again?!
If you’re not a believer in coincidences, then this will probably convince you that the feud between Taylor Swift, 26, and Katy Perry, 31, is totally still ON! I mean, it’s a little too weird that the name of Katy’s new perfume is a lyric straight from her enemy’s song “Bad Blood,” right?!
Katy actually announced this new fragrance a year ago, as a spin-off to the 2015 release, ‘Mad Potion,’ but it just hit stores earlier this month. In case you haven’t figured out the connection yet, Tay sings, “You know it used to be mad love,” in “Bad Blood,” the song she reportedly wrote about her fight with Katy.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” the 26-year-old once told Rolling Stone, regarding the inspiration for “Bad Blood.” “She would come up to me at award shows and say something and walk away and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'”
Taylor added that she and the song’s subject are now “straight-up enemies” after a business-related issue, which reportedly stemmed from an incident where Katy stole her backup dancers.
Despite the speculation, the “Wildest Dreams” singer never confirmed the feud rumors, but considering Katy immediately tweeted, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” after the interview…it was pretty obvious. Obviously, it could be a total coincidence that the 31-year-old’s perfume is called ‘Mad Love,’ but the shade thrown around in this feud has been pretty subtle, and this would be the perfect addition.
Interestingly, though, Katy and Taylor seem to be putting on a united front in another sense: They both signed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act against YouTube and other tech companies that have “provided a safe harbor for copyright infringement.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think Katy is dissing Taylor with her perfume?
