Real Life Celeb: Beyonce
Westeros Counterpart: Daenerys Targaryen
Wherefore the Connection: When we meet Dany in season one, she seems like a shy, well-seeming girl who is being used as a pawn in a man’s game for wealth and power. As time wears on, however, Dany learns that she has insane power within herself to lead. She’s no man’s puppet. Once she assumes the title of Khaleesi, Daenerys becomes unstoppable–even though she gains her fair share of jealous enemies. And once she becomes the mother of dragons, all bets are off.
Like Daenerys and her three dragons, Beyonce is a triple threat–she’s a singer, dancer and actress. Also, we first met Beyonce when she was a fresh faced teen in Destiny’s Child. Back then, she was the lead singer in a quartet that was managed and masterminded by her dad. As time went on, some of her bandmates grew disgruntled and left, putting Destiny’s Child into a crazy shuffle. Oh, and as time went on, Beyonce also caught the eye of future husband Jay-Z, broke out on her own with an insane solo career, and basically became the Khaleesi of pop with the help of shifting into her stage persona, Sasha Fierce.
Who run the world? Girls. Specifically Beyonce and Daenerys Targaryen.
