People Are Pissed At Kylie Jenner For Being 'Disrespectful' During J-Lo's VMA Performance

Diply 21 Aug 2018

If you aren't watching the MTV Video Music Awards for the drama, then you're watching them wrong.

Sure, the live performances can be pretty amazing, but what the VMAs truly offer is a unique glance at how celebrities view other celebrities, and in the case of Kylie Jenner and Jennifer Lopez, it didn't look too good.

If you have any respect for pop, R & B, and dance music whatsoever, then J-Lo has a special place in your heart.


I can honestly say that there has never been a time in my life where I felt any negative feelings towards Jennifer Lopez.

...All right, aside from when I watched Gigli.

But seriously, this woman has had an amazing musical career. So much so that MTV decided to award her the 2018 MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Between the videos for "If You Had My Love," "Waiting for Tonight," and "Love Don't Cost a Thing," this award has been a long time coming.

In honor of receiving this award, J-Lo decided to give us one of THE best performances in VMA history.

ICYMI: J-Lo took us on a nearly 20-year musical journey from 1999 right up until 2018's "Dinero."

Oh, and she had both DJ Khaled and Ja Rule join her on stage, plus she changed her wardrobe at least four times.

Not to mention, she showed the world what was probably the most impressive twerking in the (short but extensive) history of twerking.

From the crowd, J-Lo's boyfriend, former professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez, was totally loving it.

We all need a man who supports our booty-shaking like Alex Rodriguez supports J-Lo's.

Up in the front row, Cardi B was also feeling J-Lo's performance.

Cardi B was featured alongside DJ Khaled on "Dinero."

But you know who didn't seem like they were enjoying the performance? Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott.

But especially Kylie Jenner, because Travis Scott always looks like he's in another Astroworld, anyway.

To put it lightly: J-Lo's fans were peeved at Kylie's reaction, — or lack thereof.

Evidently, J-Lovers were expecting a bigger show of respect from the young Jenner.

At the very least, they wanted Kylie to stand up during J-Lo's performance.

People also claimed that Kylie looked extremely bored. Meanwhile, J-Lo was singing and dancing for her life on stage.

But hey, maybe Kylie Jenner just has "resting bored face."

And maybe she didn't need to stand up because she had a front row seat.

Then again, Cardi B stood up for J-Lo, and the rapper had a front-row view as well.

To be fair, Kylie appeared to be low energy the entire night. I mean, she didn't even stand up for Travis Scott's performance, so what does that tell you?

Load Comments

It tells me that she might not have been in the mood to be there in the first place, and that J-Lo fans shouldn't take Kylie's lack of enthusiasm too personally.


I say we let this one slide. After all, Kylie's already dealing with enough drama thanks to Nicki Minaj.
