Kid Cudi Talks About His Love for Horror Movies & Making His Daughter Watch Them When She Was 8
Kid Cudi stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers before the release of X on Friday to talk about why he loves to watch horror films specially with his daughter.
The rapper and actor reflected on his relationship with the genre, saying he watched his first scary movie when he was just seven years old. “I had older siblings, they were always playing stuff and I would be curious to see what they were watching,” Cudi said. “I think the first horror movie I ever watched was Night of the Living Dead, and then Evil Dead and Freddy Krueger.”
Cudder was asked if horror was out of bounds for his soon to be 12 year old daughter. “You see, Seth, when I had my child…I thought about all the things I could mold her to be,” he said, hinting at his desire for her to be a gamer because he wanted to play Call of Duty: Zombies with someone.
She ended up being introduced to horror when she was eight, after expressing interest in the genre. “I said, ‘Okay, I think you’re old enough to watch something.’ I think It came out at that time,” he said, to which the audience appeared shocked. He carefully monitored his daughter’s reactions, but she seemed unfazed. “She’s just like, ‘Why they following that clown?’ She has these commentaries during the movies, and she says the realest stuff. It’s like, ‘I feel you, kid.’”
