Rapper Kid Cudi is trending on social media, after performing last night on Saturday Night Live, wearing a flowery dress. And now MTO News has learned that many on social media are claiming that the rapper has just come out as transgender.
Here are pics of Kid Cudi in his Easter dress:
And here's video:
But others claim that Kid Cudi wearing a dress was actually a nod to deceased rocker Kurt Cobain.
The rapper, 37, rocked a maxi-length, spaghetti-strapped floral sundress at one point, and a rumpled green cardigan at another, while performing songs from his latest album on the NBC sketch show.
Many fans thought it could be a tribute to the late Nirvana frontman, who died by suicide at age 27 on April 5, 1994.
“Kid Cudi pulling the ultimate Kurt Cobain tribute on #SNL on the week of his death. @KidCudi all about love and suicide prevention and awareness!!!,” one fan tweeted.
But this isn't the first time Kid Cudi has given fans reasons to question either his gender identity or his sexuality. In 2014, he shocked fans by wearing a crop top during his Coachella performance and in 2016 challenged the hip hop community to be more supportive of gay rights.
In an interview he said "The hip hop community is the least outspoken about gay rights and Ima go out my way to change that."
