Swift may be addressing her feud with Scooter Braun — and his wife, Yael Cohen — in “Mad Woman.” The singer has been at odds with the manager since he purchased her masters as part of his acquisition of Big Machine Records.
“What did you think I’d say to that? Does a scorpion sting when fighting back?” she sings. “They strike to kill, and you know I will / You know I will.”
