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.
