Kid Cudi wore a dress on 'SNL' in a tribute to Kurt Cobain

Singer and rapper Kid Cudi, who wore a floral dress designed by the label Off White during a performance on "Saturday Night Live," confirmed Sunday afternoon that the garment was a tribute to Kurt Cobain.

Kid Cudi, 37, whose real name is Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, tweeted that Off White CEO Virgil Abloh created the dress for him with a tribute to Cobain in mind.

I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt [with] a floral print sundress and this man made a masterpiece.

In addition to his tributes to Cobain, Kid Cudi wore a shirt during the performance of "Tequila Shots" in memory of Chris Farley, the "SNL" cast member who died in 1997.

After his performance Saturday night, fans and critics praised Kid Cudi's tribute to Cobain, sharing side-by-sides of the pair.
