'Game Of Thrones' Joffrey Baratheon Expert Sophie Turner Says Justin Bieber is The Joffrey Of Our Time
If anyone knows her the ins and outs of Game Of Thrones' petulant young king Joffrey Baratheon, it's Sansa Stark. Which is why Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner using her power as the young woman who plays Sansa to throw some shade at Justin Bieber? Is hilarious. And kind of perfect. From Turner's interview with the Sunday Times:
I’ve been told by other cast members that I’m a lot like [Sansa]. Maybe when I first joined the show. I was only 13, I was one of those girls that read OK! 12 times a week, and I was all ‘Ooh, Justin Bieber’ — who is the Joffrey Baratheon of our time.
It should be noted that, no, Justin Bieber has (as far as we know) never beheaded anyone for funsies. As far as we know he's also not known to sexually assault and/or physically torture people.
But when it comes to the public perceptions of Bieber and Joffrey? And, well, the massive attitude issues couple with crippling immaturity? The fact that Bieber had his team carry him around the Great Wall of China like he actually thinks he's some kind of medieval monarch? Yeaaaah, there's a solid analogy there, and in fact it's a joke that's been circulating for a while now. Case in point: This clip from The Soup:
But there's no one better to confirm it than Sansa Stark herself, who's had to put up with more of Joffrey's bullshit than anyone else. Now we must consider it canon.
Just watch Bieber's deposition video again. That's all you need to make that case.
