rapper kid cudi’s gay film kiss
Sadly you won’t see it though, because it was cut from Sundance premiered film, James White.
At Sundance this weekend, it emerged that Kid Cudi snogged a guy for his new film James White. The rapper plays the gay best friend to Christopher Abbott's lead (Charlie from Girls) and filmed several takes kissing a male friend, played by David Call. Sadly though, the scenes didn't make it into the finished movie. He told Billboard, "I'm mad [director Josh Mond] cut out my kissing scenes with David," he said. "We made out so many times - and it was so good!
The film is Cudi's second major acting role - he previously starred in HBO's How To Make It In America - and he said that he was happy to take on the unexpected role. "This was way different than anything else I've ever done. It was dope to do that. I felt like I had a responsibility to present a different walk in life from that world." He went on, "When he comes out of the closet it's not really a thing," Cudi told Billboard. "I think that's something the world needs to see. 'Cause it's not a thing. We're all equal."
Kudi also scored the film and revealed that he is working on music for a new album.
