After realizing she wants to become the next big thing in music, Kylie Jenner’s mom, Kris, is hoping to enlist the help of Selena Gomez as the 17-year-old’s mentor. Lucky girl! Who better to school the ‘KUWTK’ star on how to be the perfect pop diva than our favorite singer herself?!
Not gonna lie, we are SO excited about the future music career of Kylie Jenner, 17! Obvi, her mom, Kris Jenner, 59, is too. So like any good momager, Kris is hustling hard to get her daughter working with the best in the biz. And the best is none other than Selena Gomez, 22. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that after Kris mended the girls’ fractured friendship, she is hoping the “I Want You To Know” singer will lend a hand when it comes to helping Kylie make her big break as an artist.
Kylie Jenner’s Music Career: Kris Jenner Wants Selena Gomez To Be Her Mentor
Kris helped Kylie and Selena get their friendship back on track, but now the 59-year-old is hoping the girls can transform their personal relationship into a working one.
“[Kris] wants Selena to encourage Kylie’s passion for music and help guide her in her music career,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “To be her mentor.”
Kylie first created buzz about her budding singing ability when she posted a 3-second clip of herself belting “How Many Times” by DJ Khaled, on Snapchat. Judging from the vid, Ky-Ky’s really got some pipes on her — and even Mr. Khaled agrees! After catching wind of the reality star’s performance, he responded with this caption: “I see you @kyliejenner #HowManyTimes on iTunes now ! @wethebestmusic #wethebesttakeover#wethebestMACHINE #ichangedalot on its way.”
With Selena and DJ Khaled on her side, it already looks like Ky-Ky’s dreams of becoming a recording artist have some serious potential!
Kris is hoping Selena can help Kylie out in another department of her life, too. Yep, her often-times-questioned relationship with Tyga, 25. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians matriarch doesn’t think it’s a good idea for her baby to date someone eight years her senior, so she’s asked Miss Gomez to knock some sense into her!
“Kris wants Selena to convince Kylie to dump Tyga. Kris told Selena that she’s worried about Kylie and where her relationship with Tyga is headed,” the insider tells us. After enduring the heartbreak of her roller-coaster relationship with Justin Bieber, 21, we’re sure Selena can offer Kylie some sound advice.
“Kris told Selena that Kylie looks up to her, so she will hopefully take her advice to slow things down with Tyga,” the source says. “And to remember that she’s young and has so many options — in other words, dump Tyga!”
Maybe a breakup anthem is just what Kylie needs to make her mark in music? To hear more about Kylie Jenner’s reunion with former frenemy Selena Gomez, head over to iTunes and download the newest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
