Timing is Everything: Katy Perry Gives Birth to a Baby Named After New Single, And to an Album That Drops Tonight


Talk about timing!

Katy Perry gave birth to a baby girl yesterday named Daisy Dove. Her newest single is called “Daisies.” Which idea was first? Did she plan the single and then name the baby?

Katy gives birth twice this week. Tonight, she drops a new album called “Smile.” It will take a lot for it to outdo Taylor Swift’s “Folklore,” currently available in about 12 different forms except liquid. But I always like Katy’s records, they have a great sound. She’s a buoyant singer with a terrific voice.

What a week!
