On the Scent: Fans Speculate Katy Perry’s Latest Perfume Is a Taylor Diss

We smell a conspiracy. According to Entertainment Tonight, people have been speculating that the name of Katy Perry’s new perfume is a reference to Taylor Swift’s song, “Bad Blood.” That song, as we know, has long been rumored to have been written about Katy.

The whole thing seems like a “mad” coincidence to us. Copyright © 2016, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
