The Kardashian-Jenners are not known to be secretive with their lives, having branded themselves as a tell-all family with Kris Jenner at the helm. Recently, in an interview with Elle Canada, the youngest of the bunch Kylie Jenner exclaimed that she just loves to share, even though someone "as famous" as her probably should tone it down a little. That is, they only appear to be tell-all, as they have managed to hide a lot of stuff from the public in the past and are probably currently doing so.
So, out of nowhere come these friendships that the public has little to no idea about. Kris Jenner aka Momager aka The Matriarch is enjoying her new lease of life with her cool friends. The latest of which is none other than pop star Katy Perry. What's significant about Perry is that she is not only a friend, but she is a certified BFF of Kris Jenner. This is huge.
Jenner posted a picture to Instagram of her and Perry in what appears to be Jenner's kitchen with the caption "It's us again!!!! Love you @katyperry fun night #BFF'S #shinanigans." Friendship doesn't care about spelling either, it seems.
There's no evidence of the two mingling enough to have become friends, so the origins of this bond are a little murky. First Katy Perry debuted her "Kris Jenner" hairstyle at the Met Gala earlier this year and it felt more like a shout out than anything else, then she made an appearance in the 2015 edition of the Kardashian-Jenner's Randy Newman parody, and now this. How did this happen?! I guess we'll never know.
