Rumors circulated earlier this year that Yeezus himself, , the other half of pop culture catastrophe and father to North, was the creative director for the upcoming big screen adaptations of The Jetsons. In a profile promoting his newest album with W, Kanye casually drops that he's still involved with the film. Here's the quote:

We weave through highway traffic as West makes calls about an upcoming Jetsons movie on which, he tells me, he is creative director.

Okay. So, Kanye is the creative director. But what does that actually mean? The film's producer, Denise DiNovi, reportedly told Vulture that the position doesn't actually exist. She just really loves Kanye's vision, saying:

He’s not the creative director on the movie, but I loved his passion for ‘The Jetsons.’ He gets the whole thing about the future that never was. He sees us living on a precipice of technology – cameras in your eye, your mind as a remote control to fire lasers – and wonders how things are going to break, for good or for bad. (via /Film)

So, does that mean that she's just a stalker with a beautiful dark twisted fantasy? Maybe. None of this changes the fact that I've given Yeezus a fair shot, but always go back to listening to "Livin It Up" by Ja Rule. If we live in a world where Britney can provide music for The Smurfs 2 and Kanye can be a creative director for this, then why can't Ja live it up like it's 1999 again and be the actual director for something like Terminator 5?
