Entertainment News

The Simpsons have a long history of accurately predicting the future. Now, the final season of Game of Thrones is added to the list after footage from an episode back in 2007 has surfaced. The episode was the season 29 premiere for The Simpsons, titled “The Serfsons,” and it gave us a look at exactly what would happen on Game of Thrones season 8, episode 5 — a moment that had everyone talking.

North West is the latest to embrace the Lil Nas X cross-genre viral hit “Old Town Road.” In a video shared by Kim Kardashian on social media, the daughter of Kardashian and Kanye West showed off her dance moves in a predictably adorable — and surprisingly well produced — clip.
