Kid Cudi Kissed By a Boy and Didn’t Mind It Very Much

Kid Cudi, who suburban white kids know for his single “Day N Nite,” was performing “Symphonies” alongside British pop act Dan Black in Los Angeles at Cinespace on Tuesday. A male fan rushed the stage, grabbed Cudi by the head, and planted his lips on him. Security escorted the fan off the stage. But perhaps more remarkable — or, uh, unremarkable — was that the show went on, and Cudi didn’t give a shit.

Notable not just because Cudi shrugged off a gay kiss, but because his usual reaction to fans interrupting his performance is to punch them in the face, like so (circa December):

Oh, and the song is pretty good, too.

    I think he’s just learned not to open himself up to lawsuits. I think Cudi’s talented and attractive but I think it would be a stretch to interpret anything here as more than “drunk tolerance”

    #1 maybe you’re right but I can still cling to the hope the world is evolving, can’t I?

    Obviously as a homo I’m not objective about this stuff, but I would seriously hope that with all the hate, wars and earthquakes in the world, a little affection shouldn’t unhinge folks at some point this century…..

  • ewe

    @Yet Another: That’s talent. I beg to differ.

  • Rap Fan

    I have so much respect for kid cudi after watching this i’m going to buy his album.

  • alan brickman

    it’s true that gays like the men that women want..just accept it already…

  • kiss

    gay kissing is fucking nice.

  • Totakikay

    That’s nice. Yeah, it just shows the world is evolving and some heterosexual men are open to affection, I guess.

  • blackjack44

    maybe we didnt hear him say no homo after he kissed him…lol

  • Tony

    another reason to love the cudder.

    @Totakikay: This is not “affection” this is forcing yourself on another person. Whether it’s MM or MF or FF or whatever, forcing yourself on a stranger like that is completely inappropriate and not “affection.”

  • Rhydderch

    For anyone who doesn’t want to sit through six and a half minutes of caterwauling, the “kiss” occurs at 2:08

  • Acem

    @Leslie: I agree. Unlike some of the other people here, I’m not warmed or charmed because he didn’t get mad at this guy who overstepped his bounds. If Kid Cudi had turned around and punched him in his mouth, it would have been deserved.

  • Jaroslaw

    Leslie and Acem you are full of shit. This would not even be a subject anywhere if it was a female fan kissing a male star, so don’t cop out saying it is not okay for mm/mf/ff.

    I’m not suggesting fans be allowed to maul the star, tear their clothes off or stalk them, but this was a gentle kiss.

  • Hilarious

    I’m confused by this article and most of the comments. Are we supposed to be defending sexual assault if it’s done by a gay person now just because they’re gay and we’re gay?

    That kid was wrong. Way wrong. If he had gotten punched it would’ve been well deserved.

    It didn’t have anything to do with him being gay or not.

    And making up scenarios like if it had been a female nothing would’ve happened isn’t the point at all.

  • zenflo

    Being gay in 2010 does not infer a license to do the humpalumpa on assunmedly straight men when we’re liquored up, and charge it to tolerance.

  • alan

    It was obviously not a “gay kiss”. It was a drunken straight man giving another a peck on the cheek. It’s embarrassing how desperate gay men are for validation from their heterosexual counterparts. A hetero man is expected to be applauded for not gay bashing.

    Are there any gays who are interested in other gays?
