Drake Gives Arya Stark A Shout Out At Billboards

Not only did Drake win a record-breaking number of awards at last night's Billboards, he also proved he's as much of a Game of Thrones fan as we all are.

Having clearly watched the latest episode last week just like us mere mortals, the star gave a heartfelt speech when accepting one of his awards.

After beating Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Post Malone and Travis Scott to scoop the 'Top Artist' prize, he said: "I just want to thank my mom for her relentless effort in my life.

"I want to thank my mom for all the times you drove me to piano.

"All the times you drove me to basketball and hockey, that clearly didn't work out. All the times you drove me to 'Degrassi'.

"No matter how long it took me to figure out what I wanted to do, you were always there to give me a ride, and now we're on one hell of ride."

He then gave a shout out to our fave Game of Thrones girl, saying: "Shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week."

Drake also won top male artist, top streaming songs artist, top rap artist and top Billboard 200 album for Scorpion as well as seven others - making him the 'winningest' artist ever. Apparently that's a word by the way.

And that wasn't the only Stark action to come from the Billboards last night.

Sophie Turner, who plays Arya's sister in the series, actually got married straight after the awards in a Vegas wedding.

EDM DJ Diplo shared footage on his Instagram story of the two walking down the aisle straight from the Billboard Awards, which took place in the same city.

Joe, 29, can be seen waiting at the altar before Sophie, 23, walks in and heads down the aisle in a white veil and dress.

The couple, who got engaged in October 2017, got married in front of a few friends and family, as well as some of the Billboard attendees.

In true Vegas style, an Elvis impersonator was there to marry them.

In one of Diplo's clips, Sophie repeats: "I thee wed.... and I love you... and I thank God he gave me you."

The couple then repeat together: "I promise you, I will never leave you. I will love and trust you all the days of my life."

The Stark girls are smashing it at the moment, aren't they?
