'My Girl' And 'The Lion King' Made Charlamagne Cry, Too

This "Pulse Of The People", Charlamagne discusses "Love & Hip Hop", judging athletes and when it's OK for grown men to cry

"Dad!" yells Simba as Mufasa gets dragged into the stampede of wildebeests just below after saving his life. Seconds later he emerges, climbing the cliff for dear life until he reaches the top where his brother, Scar, awaits, throwing Mufasa off the cliff and killing him. "Long live the king," says Scar.

Who among us does not remember this heart-wrenching, tear-jerking scene of "The Lion King". But is it OK for guys to cry at this emotional moment, too? Absolutely, says Charlamagne. There are other exceptions, too.

"When it's the funeral scene of 'My Girl'," Charlamagne says, "and Thomas is in the casket and the young lady is screaming that he can't see without his glasses. You can absolutely, absolutely cry. Perfectly big, crazy tears all over your shirt, into the arms of others."
