Good luck shaking off this drug trip!
Taylor Swift's squeaky clean image means we don't usually get to write too many headlines featuring her name and "LSD," but we'll gladly take the opportunity to share this fascinating story.
Music aficionados are probably familiar with Father John Misty's indie rock quirks, but he really outdid himself with his latest outing.

That's because the 34-year-old musician took acid at a 1989 concert in Australia back in December and is only just now sharing the story in Rolling Stone magazine.
And while Shake It Off and New Romantics may be super fun on the radio, FJM had a slightly more "dangerous" and "disturbing" experience, saying:
"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 experience the show like an 8-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.'
There was a disturbing aspect, [however.] This insistence on telling girls, 'I'm normal, don't let anyone tell you what you should be…' 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."
We can kind of see how being a Swiftie is like being in a cult… although a pretty positive, girl power kinda cult…
Still, not the worst critique we've ever heard about Tay Tay. LOLz!
Would U ever consider dropping acid at a Taylor Swift concert??
