Kendall Jenner Blames Billboard Awards Flub On Contacts
The stylish model took the stage at the MGM Grand on May 18 to introduce up-and-coming boyband, 5 Seconds of Summer. However, she completely misread the teleprompter and started to introduce them as One Direction instead. Yikes!
Kendall was mortified over her mistake and at one point even tried to duck out of the frame, but it was too late. The damage was done.
After the internet went wild claiming that Kendall didn’t know how to read, she decided to explain her flub on Twitter. Who needs a publicist, anyway?
“Anndddd as if I wasn’t nervous already!!!! #NeverLeavinMyContactsAtHomeAgain! #LOL #LessonLearned,” she tweeted.
Hmm. I don’t know if we’re buying this one, Kendall. HollywoodLife.com asked quite a few different eye contact wearers if they ever forget their lenses at home, especially for such a major event, and each one of them said absolutely not!
It is no secret that Kendall used to date One Direction’s Harry Styles, so we think the new boyband reminded her of her former beau.
Kendall & Kylie Jenner Set To Host MuchMusic Awards
We sure hope that Kendall is able to put this reading mishap behind her, especially since she is about to co-host an entire awards show with her sister, Kylie Jenner, 16.
Kendall and Kylie will share hosting duties of the MuchMusic Video Awards on June 15 in Canada.
There are going to be a LOT of teleprompters to read that night, so these two better practice, practice, practice!
Hopefully, 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction will wear name tags so Kendall doesn’t get them confused again. (Just kidding!)
