Game of Thrones is great. I think we can all agree on that. Except this guy, anyway. Though Snoop Dogg, who has long been a fan of the cult series, seems to be watching the show for different reasons to most of us (blood lust and nudity). In an interview with the New York Post over the weekend, Snoop Dogg said the following with respect to his mixtape for the show:
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*ck 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.
They key part here is watching the show for “historic reasons”. While we agree you can learn things from Game Of Thrones, we’re not on Snoops wave length as far as past-present comparisons go. Or as far as the whole ‘watch it for historic reasons’ train of thought goes. According to Snoop, the main point of wisdom to be taken from GoT is glaringly simple:
Kings still rule and a bitch f*cked everything up, in every situation!
