Apparently Jay Z and Beyoncé are just about as big of Game of Thrones fans as the rest of America. Only, they're not like the rest of America. They're superstars, which means they can celebrate the show in a whole different manner.

According to Emilia Clarke, who plays the platinum blonde "Mother of Dragons" Daenerys Targaryen, King Hova bought Queen Bey a dragons egg from the show. Considering dragons went extinct years ago and the three dragon eggs Daenerys received as a wedding gift from Magister Illyrio Mopatis were very likely the last ones in the world, they're probably pretty expensive. 

Clarke appears on the cover of the June/July issue of Harper's Bazaar and revealed she once tried unsuccessfully to steal herself a dragon egg from the show's set before adding, "Apparently Jay Z bought one for Beyonce. I don't know."

"They are really, really, really expensive and they are really f---ing heavy and serious works of art," she added. 

Of course, this is all unsubstantiated but amazing to picture anyway. 

Meanwhile in other Game of Thrones-meets-hip-hop news, Snoop Dogg is a fan too. Problem is, he might think it was based on real history. He told The New York Post recently, "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."

But before condemning him too harshly, there is an argument that Game of Thrones is based on England's Wars of the Roses. Maybe that's what he was referring to?
