Justin Bieber tried to emulate Kurt Cobain at Seattle show

All apologies to Nirvana fans.

Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” world star stopped in Seattle last week, and in his latest attempt to make adults loathe him, the pop star went out of his way to look like Kurt Cobain.

Dressed in grungey, ripped designer jeans and a shirt with Cobain’s face on it under not one, but two, 90s-looking flannels — one tied around his waist, something the late Nirvana singer probably never did — Bieber wooed the young audience at the KeyArena at Seattle Center.

In the middle of the Emerald City show, the 22-year-old even stripped-down some of his pretty songs in a segment where the stage looked eerily similar to Nirvana’s famed 1993 MTV unplugged performance.

Fellow tender-aged celebrity Willow Smith got in on the disgrace as well, tweeting after the show that “Kurt Cobain Is Still Alive” and “He Lives Inside The Souls Of The Youth.”

Despite it all, Bieber does have two fans who had close ties with the Nirvana singer.

Both Courtney Love and Nirvana bass guitarist Krist Novoselic shared their adoration for the Canadian pop star last month after meeting him at a men’s fashion event in Los Angeles.

Love tweeted a photo of her shaking Bieber’s hand, with Novoselic next to her, with the caption “Such a gentleman.”

Bieber’s not like them, but he can pretend.
