Some FANS may have been BAFFLED or a little confused as to why SNL musical guest, Kid Cudi’s WARDROBE choices during his PERFORMANCES . Those who know, know, but for those that DON’T let’s BREAK IT DOWN…
While appearing as the musical guest on the late-night comedy sketch series over the weekend, the 37-year-old rapper channeled Kurt Cobain during both of his musical performances, wearing outfits reminiscent of ones the Nirvana rocker previously donned. He also gave a nod to SNL great Chris Farley as well with a vintage tee. Farley passed away in 1997.
First hitting the Studio 8H stage for a performance of his track, “Tequila Shots,” Cudi sported a green cardigan that many fans pointed out looked comparable to the one that Cobain wore during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged concert back in 1993.
Then, for his second number, Cudi performed his song “Sad People,” in a spaghetti-strapped floral dress that was similar to the one that the late musician wore on the 1993 cover of the magazine, The Face.
His appearance as the musical guest on SNL fell close to the anniversary of the day Cobain died in 1994 at age 27.
So now we KNOW why he was in a SPAGHETTI strapped dress and we can appreciate the symbolism behind it. Now let’s get into the PERFORMANCES that were STELLAR per usual from Cudi!
Once more… Kid Cudi!
