Taylor Swift has revealed that she’s a massive fan of the popular HBO show, Game of Thrones. Like the rest of the world, the musician has revealed that she can’t get enough of the show, which is now airing its 8th and final season.
Taylor Swift started binge watching Game of Thrones in 2016 and admitted that avoiding spoilers was pretty easy.
I can avoid pretty much any information. For a couple years, every time I’d see my name in print, I’d throw the phone. If you can avoid your own presence, spoilers [are] easy.
She went on to reveal that she was so immersed in the world created by George R.R. Martin, that Game of Thrones started spilling into her music. At the time she was busy recording her 6th studio album, Reputation.
So much of my imagination was spent on Game of Thrones. At the time, I was making Reputation and I didn’t talk about it in interviews, so I didn’t reveal that a lot of the songs were influenced by the show.
Taylor Swift goes on to explain that half of her hugely successful album was based on the popular show, and the other half was based on her real-life experiences. She revealed that Arya Stark’s (portrayed by Maisie Williams) kill list was the inspiration behind her first single off the album, Look What You Made Me Do.
King Of My Heart was inspired by the fiery, yet ultimately tragic, romance between Daenerys (portrayed by Emilia Clarke) and Drogo (portrayed by Jason Momoa), explaining that the post-hook of drums were meant to sound like Dothraki drums. Season 7 of Game of Thrones inspired I Did Something Bad.
I Did Something Bad I wrote after Arya and Sansa conspire to kill Littlefinger. That and Look What You Made Me Do are very Cersei vibes, too. Daenerys as well.
She gushed that she just feels lucky to be alive when Game of Thrones was turned into a hit TV show. It’s a pity then that she was never featured on the Game of Thrones album, which has songs from The Weeknd, SZA, Travis Scott and other huge musicians.
