On Saturday Night Live this week, rapper Kid Cudi gave a moving performance of "Sad People," a song that seems to discuss depression and isolation.
During the performance, Cudi wore a floral dress, which many pointed out was a tribute to the late Kurt Cobain.
This April marked 27 years since the Nirvana front man died by suicide. Kid Cudi, who told Billboard in 2018 that he went to rehab for "depression and suicidal urges," has always been very open about his mental health journey. So this tribute was an especially moving moment.
Cudi's dress paid homage to one of the floral dresses Kurt wore during a 1989 live performance, according to Vogue.
And in Cudi's other SNL performance, of "Tequila Shots," the rapper paid tribute to Kurt's iconic MTV Unplugged performance, donning a green cardigan.
People on Twitter loved Cudi's tributes to Kurt.
Bravo, Kid Cudi! Thank you for honoring Kurt and always being so open. <3
