Teens Corner: ‘Cats’ to Add a Rapping Cat

Yo, teens. Wassup? You know how most musicals are totes lame-o? They’re full of long songs and don’t have any Iggy Azalea or Divergent in them? That’s not so raven. Well, there’s a new cool musical that’s going to be extra groovy for you and all of your teen friends. Suh-weet! It’s called Cats and it’s pretty old, but don’t have a cow, man. Andrew Lloyd Webber is updating the musical to be full of all your favorite funky fresh beats. Ch-ch-check it out:

Lloyd Webber said he was making the character of Rum Tum Tugger a rapping street cat because “I’ve come to the conclusion that … maybe Eliot was the inventor of rap. “The thing about the Eliot verse is that you can tell he’s American. Nobody other than Eliot would have written ‘The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat,'” the composer said.

Smiley face emoticons. Bet you and your friends can’t wait to catch this bomb-dot-com new performance with all the rapping in it. Catch you on the flipside. Leave it there, Bon Iver. See you on Broadway. Peace out …
