The Kardashians Were Texting During The VMAs’ Ferguson Tribute, Because Of Course They Were

This is how bored they were DURING A SONG.


For people who had zero percent business being at the Video Music Awards last night, the Kardashian-Jenners sure couldn’t be bothered to look interested. Kim Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner were actually caught on camera texting during the show’s Ferguson tribute, which is a new low — even for them.

Again, I couldn’t begin to tell you what these three were even doing there. At first I thought Kanye West must have someone gotten himself a plus-three instead of just a plus-one, but the dude wasn’t even there, so what the eff? Were we really that desperate for guests that we had to invite a coven of reality stars, not a single one of whom has ever been anywhere near a recording studio? (Oh god, now that I’ve said that, I just got an eerie premonition that Kendall’s going to try to come out with an album.)

Anyway, for most of the show they were just prominently-breasted seat-fillers, bobbing their head along unenthusedly to some of the biggest hits of the year. Literally the whole thing is a giant concert where very little happened aside from Nicki Minaj holding her dress together and Blue Ivy destroying our ovaries with cuteness, so you’ll forgive me for thinking they might have a little attention span to spare for a Ferguson tribute. They did not.

During Common‘s speech acknowledging Mike Brown of Ferguson, and asking for a moment of silence to honor his wrongful death, one of the audience cameras picked up the Kardashian-Jenner clan texting. As in, every single one of them was texting at the same time. Not even talking to each other or all crowding around the same phone — individually texting from three different phones during one of the only moments of this event when you actually had to pay attention. Classic.

I mean come on ladies, as soon as we saw you in the audience, we knew you were going to be complete tools about this, so the least you could have done is paint eyes on Kim’s (EXTREMELY PROMINENT) boobs so that she at least looks like she’s paying attention while the rest of you post selfies with the caption “Can’t wait to meet Ferguson he sounds hot.”

    Wait….does that mean you haven’t seen this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHp7sq1Tzn0

      Don’t. You. Dare.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      OH MY GOD KATE. There are so many shots of her butt that I can’t tell which hole we’re supposed to think is singing.

    • Kate

      She claimed it was a joke and released it as a charity single. But I think we all know that was not its original intent.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Not even a little bit. Christ.

    • Guest

      It makes me appreciate Paris Hilton’s ‘singing’ abilities, which, I’ll admit, I can actually listen to, unlike this, which I only got through 1min, 12secs of it!

    • Awesomus

      There’s a lot of shots of her boobs too… come to think of it, not too many shots of her ave period.

    • Papillon

      MY EARS!!!!!! THEY BLEED!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Olivia Wilson

      I did not expect her voice to sound like this. It’s just… so bad. It’s so bad.

      It’s like this is just a video of Nasim Pedrad parodying her except IT’S THE REAL KIM.

  • Disney-freak

    We’ll ofc! What to expect from these fake celebrities. I hope Kanye is ashamed! They all act “black” and hang out with “black people” until it’s time to be “black” and stand up for them and all the bad things happening to them!

    • FauxRealFaux

      How does one act black?

  • Alexandra Mitchell

    Wow, how self involved can you be? Oh wait, I forgot who this was about…

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      ALL the way self-involved.

    • whiteroses

      All the way to eleven.

    Kim Kardashian doesn’t care about black people.

  • M_G

    Actually, none of the people in this shot seem particularly invested/interested/even paying a little attention to the tribute. NOT that that excuses the behavior….just wondering if they are ALL callous idiots (and this IS the VMAs, so that’s entirely possible) or if there is a mis-match between when the camera pic was taken and when the tribute was going on?

    • Nbl

      I feel if that was the case, MTV or Pimp Momma Kris would have said something by now.

    • Jenni

      I’m shocked it’s taking so long for them to accuse MTV of doing that. I can’t figure out what their excuse is going to be besides that.

  • Dana

    They don’t owe this man anything. It was a publicity stunt and nothing more.

  • whiteroses

    Can we all just be over the Kardashians now? Please?

  • alexandra

    Yea – agree – NO ONE is paying attention / caring. Not just them. ugh I just defended the Kardashians
