If you need a good giggle today just picture Father John Misty tripping to Taylor Swift’s music.
In an interview with Rolling Stone (via Stereogum) he recalled bumping into Swift’s crew at a bar in Melbourne, Australia, where they invited him to the show.
To prepare for a psychedelic night that he said was “written in the stars”, FJM hit up his tour manager to find him some acid.
FJM talks about experiencing Swift’s concert like an eight-year-old girl, as much as a 35-year-old man could:
“It was holy. It was psychedelic. She fully impregnated my dilated soul with her ideology. I remember laughing uncontrollably. I remember going outside for a smoke and thinking, ‘I need to get back in there.'”
Among all the happiness of the night, FJM said something about the performance disturbed him:
“This insistence on telling girls, ‘I’m normal, don’t let anyone tell you what you should be.’ Meanwhile, there are 60-foot-high images of her on screens. If you wanted to curate an evening with the Grand Leader, this is what you would do. It’s a very, very false normal. And that’s dangerous.”
Don’t try this at home, kids.
