Chris Rock to Jada Pinkett Smith: "My Kids Listen to Your Kids"

Fuse caught up with some of the insanely talented people who voice the CGI animals in the upcoming Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted—we're talking Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith and Cedric the Entertainer—and we learned a few hilarious, surprising tidbits about what their children listen to. 

For instance, did you know that Chris Rock's kids are big fans of Willow Smith? "Hey, my kids listen to your kids!" Rock says to Smith. "'21th Century Girl'? Oh my god. And they love LMFAO, but they have no idea what it stands for."

And apparently hair-whipper Willow Smith is obsessed with '80s punk rocker Billy Idol. "My daughter loves Billy Idol. She doesn't stop," Smith says. 

Cedric the Entertainer, on the other hand, tries to instill a love of the R&B classics in his kids. "I try to hip them to the old school. 'Love Train' by the O'Jays. We play them 'Super Freak' by Rick James—don't judge me as a parent! But it's a fun song for kids."

For the full interview—including Chris Rock's thoughts on the rainbow Afro wigs in the movie—watch the video above. Catch Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted in theaters this Friday, June 8
