Kid Cudi

Warned Over Cigarette

At MTV VMAs

8/29/2011 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kid Cudi is NOT Don Draper, so he doesn't get to smoke wherever he wants -- and he learned that lesson the hard way when he sparked up at the MTV VMAs last night.

Honchos at the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live spotted the rapper puffing away as Lady Gaga went on stage to accept the award for Best Female Video -- which is a problem because the place is a non-smoking venue.

A rep for the building tells TMZ an usher was dispatched to speak with Cudi -- where, "He was asked to put it out and he complied."

And they all lived happily ever after.

I'm waaaaaaayyy more offended by Gaga's hideous face! She looks like the douche-bag who works at the gas station near my house.

I saw a pic from last night where Gaga was lighting a cigarette for ADELE. Disappointed to see that Adele smokes tbh.

Why is this a story? He was asked to it out, he did. Is it a slow news day and you have to fill space?

Umm Lady CaCa smoked through her entire performance last night. Does that not count as smoking inside a non-smoking venue??

My favorite VMA moment of all time was when Fionna Apple got up and said that the VMAs were all a bunch of BS. I wonder what happened to her.
