Kevin Bacon says he wants to perform with Taylor Swift next: 'I really do admire her'

Turns out, Kevin Bacon's wildest dreams include performing with Taylor Swift.

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM's Pop Culture Spotlight With Jessica Shaw to promote his new podcast Six Degrees With Kevin Bacon, the actor revealed that when it comes to his wishlist of people he wants to perform with, Swift is at the top.

Bacon put this manifestation out into the universe when he was discussing his recent performance with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden, an experience that he said far surpassed a typical "bucket list" item. "To me, a bucket list is a list of things you can actually see yourself doing one day," he told Shaw. "This is the NFW [No F---ing Way] list."

When pressed by Shaw to reveal who's next up on the "NFW list," Bacon said, "Taylor [Swift]. That's obviously the right answer."

Bacon admitted that, unlike the rest of Hollywood, he has not yet attended an Eras tour concert, but conceded that he really needed to. "I've never seen her. No, I haven't seen her. I really need to," he said. "I really do admire her though. I think she's a great songwriter and I think that what she's done with just her messaging and the messages she gives to young women, it's just, it's awesome."

And, hey, if that doesn't work out, maybe the songstress can stop by his podcast? "I hope so," Bacon said, adding in a plea to Swift, "Hey, if you're listening, come on."
