Jason Derulo Really Thought “Cats Would Change The World”

About

“I Thought Cats Would Change The World is a statement made by singer-songwriter and actor Jason Derulo regarding his role in the 2019 film Cats. Due to the film’s unfavorable viewer response, Derulo was mocked on Twitter for the statement.

Origin

On August 12th, 2020, Telegraph published an interview with Jason Derulo who stated:

“For the longest time, I was trying to figure out what’s the perfect first role? Cats checked all the boxes. You can’t get a more star-studded cast, you don’t get a more respected director than an Oscar winner, and Rum Tum Tugger is a legacy role, a standout character in a classic musical. Even when I saw the trailer, I thought it looked unbelievable. Like, I know some people saw it and they were terrified, but I got chills down my spine! I thought it was gonna change the world.”

Spread

On August 13th, 2020, Twitter users began to share and mock Derulo’s statement. Twitter user @imyourdaisy posted themself and Derulo shaking hands for both “being absolutely baffled by people who did not enjoy watching cats” (shown below, left).
