Poor Kendall and Kylie! The teenagers were booed while introducing Kanye West’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards…and the crowd’s response really got to Kylie. Luckily, Kendall was there to comfort her afterward. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on the girls’ reactions.
Maybe the Kardashians just don’t belong at award shows. Kendall and Kylie Jenner sizzled on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards on May 17, but they didn’t receive a welcoming response from the crowd when they took the stage. Find out how the reality stars reacted to an overwhelming chorus of “Booooooos!” from the audience.
Kendall Jenner & Kylie Jenner’s Reaction To Being Booed At Billboard Music Awards
“Kylie took it harder than Kendall. Kendall didn’t really care, but Kylie seemed pretty bothered by it backstage,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But Kendall eased Kylie’s thoughts, and told her that there’s nothing they can do about it, so stressing over it would be a waste of time.”
Phew! We feel so bad that Kylie was upset, but are glad Kendall was there to be the calm voice of reason. Of course, Kendall is used to brushing off awkward Billboard Music Awards moments — remember at the 2014 show, while she was introducing 5 Seconds of Summer’s performance, the model totally flubbed her speech!?
Although that was probably embarrassing at the time, the sexy model clearly learned from the critics, and came back stronger this year. Both girls remained incredibly professional amidst the loud “Booos,” and finished their introduction of Kanye West with class.
Meanwhile, Yeezy received a negative response of his own, with the audience filing out of the MGM Grand Arena during his finale performance. The rapper was also heavily booed during his set, but, as HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reported, isn’t letting it get to him.
“Kanye didn’t even realize he was being booed at first, but when he did, he considered it a huge badge of honor. He actually laughed about it!” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He things that if he is getting any reaction, then that is the best thing that can happen — silence would be much worse! He loves the haters, and they really make him thrive. His ego is off the charts, and hearing and feeling people’s raw emotion is right up his alley.”
Hopefully ‘Ye was able to give Kylie some extra encouragement, too!
