Indie rocker Father John Misty had a lot of revelations about Taylor Swift after dropping acid at her show

Taylor Swift may seem like the opposite of dangerous... until you drop some acid at one of her concerts, according to indie rock artist Father John Misty.

"The last time I took a hero's dose of LSD was at a Taylor Swift concert in Australia," Father John Misty, whose real name is Josh Tillman, dished to Rolling Stone. "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.’”

According to Tillman's account, taking acid at a TSwift show is quite the enlightening experience.

"I experience[d] the show like an 8-year-old girl — as much as that's possible for a 35-year-old man," he recalled. "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 some parts were less fun, like when the drugs caused Tillman to begin to think of Swift as a cult leader.

"There was a disturbing aspect," he said. "This insistence on telling girls, 'I'm normal, don't let anyone tell you what you should be,'" he recalled of Swift's conversation with the crowd. "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."
