Father John Misty Goes Full VICE, Recounts Acid Trip At Taylor Swift Show

Today, this writer discovered what’s perhaps the only thing she has in common with Father John Misty – a religious experience at a Taylor Swift concert.
Sure, mine occurred naturally – and his on a “hero’s dose” of LSD – but I can fully relate to his omission that TayTay “fully impregnated my dilated soul with her ideology” in the latest issue of Rolling Stone (surprisingly *not* VICE, where everyone writes about attending their graduation / Bat Mitzvah  / Nan‘s funeral fuck-eyed on California Sunshine… which we <3).
We’re not even going to try and paraphrase FJM’s recount*, ‘cos it’s too off-tits to make any attempt at doing so, but we have bolded up the best bits.

“The last time I took a hero’s dose of LSD was at a Taylor Swift concert in Australia. She was playing in Melbourne, and I met a bunch of people from her crew at a bar, and they invited me to the show. I got my tour manager to get me some acid: “This is written in the stars. I’m supposed to go take acid at this Taylor Swift concert…

I experienced the show like an eight-year-old girl — as much as that’s possible for a 35-year-old man. 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.”

But there was a disturbing aspect — 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.”
* TBC if he was actually trippin’ balls when he gave that interview.
As eye-opening as his TayTay-inspired A-Hole was, FJM wants everyone to know that initial reports his experience inspired Lana Del Rey’s “Freak” video – in which he starred – are entirely false.
It was a gag between friends, and we peasants took it way too literally GOSH.

Keep doing you, FJM.
