Oh my gosh, Kendall Jenner just totally mortified herself during the 2014 Billboard Music Awards! I am sweating and hiding under my duvet in embarrassment FOR her! Kendall, looking intensely glamorous and serving pure Kimmy K realness, trotted out stylishly onto the stage to introduce English pop sensations, 5 Seconds of Summer. No big deal right? After all, looking attractive and speaking into cameras is kind of what she does for a living.
But maybe not for much longer. It looks like Kendall might need to invest in reading glasses, at the very least. Even with the guidance of the handy-dandy teleprompter, Kendall flubbed up her intro right from the very beginning. It was painfully awkward! I actually began screaming, "OH NO" in a sincere and earnest way.
But to give her credit where it is TOTALLY due, Kendall handled the gaffe as well as possible. I mean, it didn't make it less awkward, but she made it pretty clear that she had no intention of melting into the floor or running away crying. What did she do instead? Kendall just started laughing. Her confidence in that moment made me pretty much want to give her a high-five.
Unfortunately, she also decided to explain the problem to those of us watching at home. "You guys," she said, "I'm a terrible reader." Thus giving every person who has ever given the Kardashians crap for being not smart enough fodder to live on for years. Oh Kendall. Maybe it would have been better to just smile and laugh, rather than trying to explain after all.
What did you think of Kendall's goof?
