The Game of Thrones finale ended on a controversial note. Fans were left unimpressed with the way Daenerys Targaryen's arc changed. She went from being a possible Queen of the seven kingdoms to Mad Queen, replicating the footsteps of her father aka Mad King. Spoiler warning for those who haven't watched the show - the show ended with Jon Snow killing Dany. While the final season caused havoc on social media, Taylor revealed she "relates" to Dany from Game of Thrones season 8. 

In an interview with Rolling Stones, the international pop singer compared Daenerys from the finale season to herself while she spoke about women being strategic business minds. She felt that the final season portrayed that "it is a lot easier for a woman to attain power than to maintain it.” She clarified immediately that she was using the comparison as a "total metaphor." 

"It’s a total metaphor! Like, obviously I didn’t want Daenerys to become that kind of character, but in taking away what I chose to take away from it, I thought maybe they’re trying to portray her climbing the ladder to the top was a lot easier than maintaining it, because for me, the times when I felt like I was going insane was when I was trying to maintain my career in the same way that I ascended. It’s easier to get power than to keep it. It’s easier to get acclaim than to keep it. It’s easier to get attention than to keep it," she explained. 

She added, "I don’t like that she did that!" referring to blazing King's Landing with her dragon. "But, I mean, watching the show, though, maybe this is a reflection on how we treat women in power, how we are totally going to conspire against them and tear at them until they feel this — this insane shift, where you wonder, like, “What changed?” And I’ve had that happen, like, 60 times in my career where I’m like, “OK, you liked me last year, what changed? I guess I’ll change so I can keep entertaining you guys," she reflected. 

That is one impressive way to see things. What do you think of Taylor Swift's comparison? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
