As HBO's most-watched show ever, Game of Thrones entertains millions of viewers around the globe with intriguing fantasy storytelling. One devoted fan, however, might have a slightly twisted look at the series. In a recent interview with the New York Post, Snoop Dogg revealed himself as a huge fan of the hit HBO show, explaining that he watches it “for historic reasons.” Yes, exactly.
Judging from your contribution to the Season 5 Game of Thrones mixtape, it seems as though you’re a big fanboy.
Most definitely. When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honored because I’m truly a fan of the show. I would have done it for free, but they gave me some money on top of it, so I was like, “F - - k it, let’s do it!” I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here. I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.
Interviewer Hardeep Phull then asked Snoop to clarify his answer while emphasizing that Game of Thrones is a fictional television show, he responded:
Um, OK. So what parallels have you drawn between this fictional TV show, and the modern world?
That kings still rule and a bitch f - - ked everything up, in every situation!
Hmmm. I see.
