Well, that was awkward for everyone involved.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner took the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday evening to introduce one of the night's most highly-anticipated performers: their own brother-in-law, Kanye West. The problem? Very audible "boos" directed at the celebrity sisters from inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Not only could they be heard loud and clear inside the venue, but even viewers at home could hear it.
@anialexis_ And was it just me, or did they boo Kendall and Kylie Jenner?— Jessica (@jaylaine_) May 18, 2015
I love Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Don't boo my babies.— Chelseaaa (@MyMoneyMyDream_) May 18, 2015
The whole world hates Kendall and Kylie Jenner, it looks like. And I still hate Kanye. #Boo— Chase Ilsley (@thedirtymonster) May 18, 2015
For what it's worth, West didn't fare much better. For those at home, his smoke and fire-filled performance of "All Day" and "Black Skinhead" was overshadowed by the deafening silence of the television censors. (At least, we think it was "All Day" and "Black Skinhead." We couldn't really hear, on account of the censors.)
Come on Billboard Music Awards, don't you know how to respect "real artists"?
Something tells us to expect one of West's signature rants in 3...2...
