Growing up as a Kardashian can’t be easy, especially when you’re a Jenner, but for Kendall Jenner things were tough because she felt like she didn’t stack up to her sister - especially in middle and high school but she didn’t have as many friends as Kylie.

In an interview with ZAZA WORLD RADIO, on Beats 1, Kendall explained that while she has a vast social life now, that she spent much of her teens at home moping around because she was so unpopular:

I was sitting in my room a lot of days crying because Kylie had so many friends, and I didn’t know what to do, and it’s gonna make me emotional right now. I really was like, ‘I’m never gonna have friends.’

One of the most iconic moments of the 2000s occurred at the 2003 VMAs when Britney Spears kissed Madonna onstage at the end of their live performance. When people think about this infamous moment they focus on the kiss, obviously, but there was a lot more happening than just a smooch.

Not only was Christina Aguilera on stage with the women, but she kissed Madonna as well. MTV didn’t show that and instead cut to Britney’s ex, Justin Timberlake who was… less than enthused about the whole thing.

Even though the entire moment was built to foster drama, it pretty much defined the 2000s and the way pop stars handled themselves. If they weren’t getting attention then what was the point?
