Relationships, good or bad, are a part of life’s experiences. These cause you pain and suffering at some time, and joy and fulfilment at others. It takes a lot of time to finally find the one. The experiences we go through teach us who to trust. However, getting over a relationship is not easy. Well, it certainly isn’t the case with pop star Taylor Swift. It is being speculated that Taylor’s new song Mr Perfectly Fine is about Joe Jonas. Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, had the perfect reaction to Taylor Swift’s new song.
In a post to her Instagram stories, Turner, who is married to Joe Jonas, shared a clip of the song and tagged Swift. “It’s not NOT a bop,” she captioned the snap. Swift later shared Turner’s post on her own stories, writing back, “Forever bending the knee to the Queen of the north.”
The hilarious interaction between the two could be a response to speculation that ‘Mr Perfectly Fine’ is about Jonas. He and Swift dated briefly in 2008, just before the release of her second album, Fearless. Mr Perfectly Fine, about a former lover who moved on quickly, is a previously unreleased song from this era.
We can understand Sophie’s sentiments, as she once called Joe the best hubbs ever. What do you think of the ongoing drama? Talk to us in the comments below!

However, it seems there’s more for Game of Thrones fans they can look forward to. George R.R. Martin is developing a live stage spectacular for Broadway.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau retweeted The Hollywood Reporter’s article about the upcoming drama. He asked, “Where can I get a ticket?” Well, the answer right now is nowhere, although the goal is to debut the play on Broadway in New York City, at the West End in London, and in Australia in 2023. Hopefully well after the coronavirus has receded and theatres are back open.
This is a surprising tweet coming from Coster-Waldau. The actor had earlier said he doesn’t miss Game of Thrones and he’s done talking about it. Well, it seems deep down he does share a bond with the land of Westeros.
