Kid Cudi Makes Bold Fashion Statements on Saturday Night Live to Pay Tribute to Kurt Cobain and Chris Farley

Many are familiar with popular TV show, Saturday Night Live. Yesterday, viewers were surprised when famous rapper, Kid Cudi, made an appearance on the show rocking a floral dress, where he sang a couple songs from his newest album, Man on the Moon III: The Chosen. Cudi performed his first song, “Tequila Shots” with a custom t-shirt exhibiting a photograph of Chris Farley, dedicated to the late Saturday Night Live cast member. He then changed into a second outfit, a white floral dress with spaghetti straps to perform his second song, “Sad People.”

Kid Cudi’s bold fashion choice was a dauntless statement and broke social norms. Not only was it striking in general, but audiences have pointed out that his second fashion selection for his performance was most likely a tribute to Kurt Cobain. Side-by-side pictures were posted comparing Kurt Cobain’s outfits to Cudi’s from SNL. The anniversary of Cobain’s passing was this past week – he passed away on April 5th, 1994. Cudi not only performed a couple of his latest musical hits on the show, but he also joined the SNL cast for a comical sketch about their love of flutes. Check out the skit below.
