Kid Cudi Unbothered By Critics Of His SNL Floral Dress

This past April, artist Kid Cudi stunned us when he appeared on Saturday Night Live donned in a floral print dress.

Inspired by Kurt Cobain, the rapper apparently mapped out the idea years in advance. In 1993, Cobain appeared on the cover of the magazine The Face in a similar dress.

The outfit inspired the Grammy-award winner to do the same.

“The image of seeing Kurt Cobain in a dress was very rock ‘n’ roll to me,” Cudi said on the latest episode of HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted. “That was cool. So I already made my mind up years ago that I wanted to do this. And it’s cool because I’m also giving confidence to the kids and telling them to be themselves and do what they want to do.”

Everyone wasn’t a fan of Cudi’s appearance, but he brushed off the haters.

“I’m more like, ‘Hmm, I wonder why they feel that way,'” Cudi said on the show.

“I’ve never been someone who’s, like, thinking about the backlash,” he added. “I don’t give a f— about what anyone thinks. You can’t when you’re doing this s—. I knew it would p— some people off, but I love that. Because hip-hop is so weird about s—.”

Cudi chose to wear another Cobain-inspired outfit, this time a green cardigan, which was similar to the one Cobain wore during Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged concert.

But the sweater didn’t garner as much attention as his floral dress.

“I’ve already seen people making YouTube videos where they’re just strictly talking about me and this dress,” he said. “Like grown men, angry, grown Black men, angry. ‘He’s doing something against men and masculinity; it’s a big thing going on….’ And I just be like, ‘Yo, this is so funny, this is crazy that I’ve stirred it up like this.'”
