Y Kant Kendall Read? 10 Hard-to-Pronounce Band Names
I didn't watch the Billboard Music Awards last weekend, because why would I? Even so, it was hard to avoid the news about Kardashian sibling Kendall Jenner's flubbing an intro:
Honoring the Kardashian family's tradition of intellectual excellence.
The 18-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star botched her introduction of Australia's boy band, 5 Seconds of Summer, at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday.
As she read the teleprompter, she initially looked poised and confident, but then something went wrong. Suddenly Jenner got tongue-tied and tried to laugh off her embarrassment.
"And now we welcome, one..." she said before trailing off and bending over giggling
Jenner's been linked to One Direction's Harry Styles, which might explain her inability to tell one collective of smirking teenage dipshits from another. But reading about it, I could only breathe a sigh of relief she didn't have to introduce any of these bands.
