Kid Cudi recently appeared in an episode of The Shop: Uninterrupted where he talked about his decision to wear an Off-White™ dress during his latest Saturday Night Live performance.

The artist began by explaining how “rock and roll” the late Kurt Cobain was when he did the same thing. “That was cool. So I already made my mind up years ago that I wanted to do this,” Cudi said. “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.” When asked if any of his peers from hip-hop hit talked to him about it, he answered, “It’s not like Kanye’s gonna hit me up and be like, ‘Yo, that dress was fresh,’ but it’s okay. I know that Kanye sees that and he respects me for it.”

Chelsea Handler followed up by asking if there were opinions from people that bothered Cudder, to which he simply responded with, “I’m more like ‘Hmm, I wonder why they feel that way… F*ck em.’” He added, “I’ve never been someone who’s like thinking about the backlash. I don’t give a f*ck about what anyone thinks. You can’t when you’re doing this sh*t. I knew it would piss some people off, but I love that. Because hip-hop is so weird about sh*t.”

Elsewhere in fashion, Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions debuted a unisex collection.
