Joshua Tillman, known as Father John Misty, recalled tripping on acid at a Taylor Swift concert in 2015.

Taylor Swift can make the good guys bad for a weekend.

Indie artist Father John Misty (Josh Tillman) admitted to taking LSD at a Taylor Swift concert in a recent Q&A with Rolling Stone.

Tillman recalled meeting Swift’s crew at a bar, who then invited him to her Dec. 12, 2015 show in Melbourne, Australia.

“I got my tour manager to get me some acid: ‘This is written in the stars,” he told the magazine. “’I’m supposed to go take acid at this Taylor Swift concert.’”

The rocker went on to detail his bizarre trip.

“I experienced the show like an 8-year-old girl — as much as that’s possible for a 35-year-old man,” the former Fleet Foxes drummer said.

“It was holy. It was psychedelic,” Tillman added. “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.'”

Tillman also shared that Swift’s message to the crowd about being normal felt forced.

“It’s a very, very false normal,” he said. “And that’s dangerous.”

Father John Misty’s 2015 album, “I Love You, Honeybear” landed on several “Best Album of 2015” lists. The artist is known for his sarcastic and honest ballads.

Taylor Swift ended her “1989” tour in Melbourne, Australia in Dec. 2015.

He previously poked fun at fellow artist Ryan Adams after Adams’ completely covered Swift’s “1989” album. Tillman put out covers of Adams’ covers in the style of The Velvet Underground before removing them shortly after.

“I was taking this dude [Adams] to task for what I saw as a grotesque stunt and matching it with another grotesque stunt,” Tillman told Rolling Stone.

“It ironically became the biggest publicity I’ve ever received, and that grossed me out,” he added.

“I had to take them down. Which then, of course, made it even bigger. It was such a comedy of errors.”
