The “Cats” Trailer Is So Much Better Set to RuPaul’s “Kitty Girl”


The Cats trailer was released last week, and if you have watched, then you probably agree it looks like a jellicle nightmare.

Was anyone asking for a live-action Cats movie starring Rebel Wilson, James Corden, Judi Dench, and Taylor Swift? No. Granted, we will be seeing this nightmare on opening night.

The song featured in the first preview is arguably the show’s most famous number, “Memory,” here performed by Jennifer Hudson, covered in CGI cat fur.

“Memory” is good and all, but someone on Twitter thought of a song that would be even more puuurfect for the Cats movie musical: “Kitty Girl” by RuPaul.

We have to admit it fits kind of perfectly. The only thing that would make it better is the All Stars Season 3 version with Bebe Zahara Benet purring, “Meow, meow, savage beauty!”

If someone in Cats doesn’t at least say “Hey, kitty girls,” the movie is a complete missed opportunity.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
