Lady Gaga releases details about perfume ‘Fame’ after information leaks

Lady Gaga is having a rough week. First, she was conked in the head with a pole by one of her own backup dancers and suffered a concussion. Then she had to respond to a perceived insult perpetrated by Madonna. And now Mama Monster’s claw hand has been forced by a fashion editor who leaked details about her new perfume “Fame.”

Clearly, the concussion is the most serious of these three things. But the singer does seem pretty perturbed about this latest development.

Looks like photos of my perfume are being leaked. Oh you fashion editors I could just crinkle my hands at you!…

On Twitter, Gaga released a photo of the perfume’s bottle, which looks like a rocket ship filled with black liquid, and revealed that it smells like “tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.”

It was previously alleged that the singer wanted the perfume to smell like an “expensive hooker” and/or “blood and semen,” so the actual scent list is quite a relief.

To celebrate and promote her perfume's launch, Gaga will reportedly be on the cover of September’s Vogue, according to the Hollywood Reporter and Women’s Wear Daily.
