For reasons we may never know, Kris Jenner and Justin Bieber were hanging out poolside, when Kris forgot one accessory required by all Californians before exiting their homes: Sunglasses.
Kris made a subtle complaint, maybe, "Ah! The sun is in my eyes. If only I had something to shield them with?" Bieber probably responded, "Please, take my sunglasses. I don't even really need them." Jenner then responded, "Oh but I couldn't...Are you sure?" Justin, being the grown man that he is, placed the sunglasses upon Jenner's nose, ensuring relevancy within the Kardashian household forever while facing the risk of retinal damage, bravely, steadily, one man, standing strong against the world. And the sun.
