    Snoop Dogg has revealed that he’s a huge Game of Thrones fan, because who isn’t? The show, which features dragons, giants and monsters from the unknown, is the best show on TV without fail but for Snoop Dogg it’s more than just gritty entertainment – it’s a history lesson.

    The 43-year-old rapper has revealed that he believes the HBO series to be historically accurate and loves turning the gory fantasy drama to learn about our past, which was supposedly significantly more magical than we’d have imagined.

    “I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here,” he genuinely explained to the New York Post. “I like to know how we got from there to here and the similarities between then and now.”

    We haven’t come across many parallels between Westeros and anywhere in the real world, but according to Snoop there’s one glaring similarity that’s passed us by: “That kings still rule and a bitch f ** ked everything up, in every situation!”

    The hip-hop legend, who will be returning to the UK later this summer for a headlining set at Lovebox Festival, was asked to produce music for the series five mixtape of the show, which he says was a real privilege.

    “When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honoured 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’.”

    The rapper recently riled up Game of Thrones fanatics with a picture of himself smoking on a replica Iron Throne. Calling the singer, who releases his 12th studio album Bush later this month, “disrespectful” fans demanded an apology. Unsurprisingly, they didn’t get one. Hopefully his latest quote and his GoT mixtape will more than make up for it.

    Hillarious! Wonder if he ever looked at a map or a globe? The opening credits tell you immediately that this is not our planet.

    Jay Thomas was dangerously close to saying the same thing the other day. His staff had to point out that it's not based on history to him, also. "Well, they believed in dragons!" was his response.

    I hear Snoop has been pricing dragons. He wants a pet more bad ass than a tiger.

    The part about kings still rule has some merit, but that's all. I can't tell if he's being deliberately ignorant or if he's stupid.
