Katy Perry has released her new perfume called, ‘Mad Love’ and fans are going crazy about it. However, Many began speculating that the scent is a reference to Taylor Swift’s hit song Bad Blood, which features the phrase “mad love” in its lyrics.
“Cause baby now we got bad blood, you know it used to be mad love,” sung Taylor on the 2014 hit, which was later remixed in May 2015 to include rapper Kendrick Lemar. With stars including Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Lena Dunham featuring in the video, it has since become one of Taylor’s iconic hits – and the star has previously admitted that she wrote the track following a feud with an unnamed fellow pop star.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” Taylor told Rolling Stones magazine. “She would come up to me at awards 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?'”
Although Taylor never named her pop star rival, many fans speculated that the song was written about Katy Perry prompting some to suggest that Katy’s new fragrance is a comeback.
However, Mad Love follows a theme for the Firework singer fragrance range, with her previous scent being named Mad Potion. Katy has been expanding her beauty addiction over recent months. Earlier this year she created her own lipstick collection with CoverGirl.
Katy shared on Twitter her exciting new venture, writing to her 89.7 million followers. “After several wonderful years of BEING the face, I now get to CREATE the face!” she said of her work with CoverGirl, for whom she has been a brand ambassador since 2013.
