Somewhere at one of her multiple multi-million dollar residences, Taylor Swift probably sneered and whispered into her cat’s ear, “I made that bitch famous,” watching Father John Misty’s Saturday Night Live debut.
“Bedding Taylor Swift every night inside the Oculus Rift,” he sang in the opening lines off his new song, “Total Entertainment Forever.” We will assume a courtesy phone call did not take place.
And now, our actual reality is contaminated by virtual reality sex lyrics. With this dude, it was really only a matter of time.
Father John Misty, a.k.a. Josh Tillman, became fixated on Swift after he went to one of her shows on acid. “She fully impregnated my dilated soul with her ideology,” said Tillman.
“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,” Tillman continued. “It’s a very, very false normal. And that’s dangerous.” The experience eventually inspired a Lana del Rey video.
“Total Entertainment Forever” touches on these themes a bit as he begs for the sheeple to wake up. “Not bad for a race of demented monkeys from a cave to a permanent party.” It’s the campfire version of Swift nemesis Katy Perry’s “Chained to the Rhythm.”
If we know anything with certainty, we can be assured that this will probably end well!
