Kid Cudi Expects Kanye West Would Approve Of "SNL" Dress: "He Respects Me For It"

His fans were excited to hear that he would be performing on Saturday Night Live, but Kid Cudi’s appearance was overshadowed by his choice of attire. He took to the stage wearing a floral dress and later, Cudi revealed the design was a collaboration with Virgil Abloh. It was done in tribute to Kurt Cobain as a nod to the late Nirvana icon’s gender-bending look that he wore at a show back in 1989.

Although Kudi has previously explained why he chose to wear the dress, he expounded on his reasoning during his visit to HBO Max’s The Shop: Uninterrupted. “SNL comes my way, so I immediately thought like, this would be the perfect opportunity to wear a dress. But, do I go to a store and just buy something off the rack? Or do I go get somebody to make me some sh*t?”
