Kendall Jenner's telemprompter flub at the BillBoard Music Awards may have been intentional, after all. According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, forgetting about the name of the Australian band, 5 Seconds of Summer at the Awards show may have been a ploy set by Kris Jenner to make the entertainment world abuzz with Kendall and her telemprompter flub.

On May 19, it was reported that Kendall Jenner was given her first opportunity to do something big in the entertainment industry and she flubbed it.  Jenner was given the stage to introduce the Aussie band, 5 Seconds of Summer at the Billboard Music Awards but she committed a major mistake when she accidentally began to introduce the band's rival, One Direction instead. Her exact words were, "And now we welcome, one..." She caught herself in time, hiding her embarrassment by making a joke about her reading capabilities.

Later, Kendall went online on Twitter to explain her faux pas by blaming this on her contact lenses! "Anndddd as if I wasn't nervous already!!!! #NeverLeavinMyContactsAtHomeAgain! #LOL #LessonLearned," Kendall wrote on her Twitter timeline. But it was already too late. #Kendallyouhadonejob started trending on Twitter.

It was a cringe worthy mistake. But Celebrity Dirty laundry is now reporting that while it may be cringe worthy, it was not a mistake at all!

Citing the National Enquirer reports, the gossip site shares that the flub "was yet ANOTHER brilliant Kardashian-esque K-Klan Kon Game - konkokted to trigger tons of free publicity by none other than mom-ager Kris."

"The alleged 'blunder' was a strategic move to generate worldwide headlines and plaster Kendall's face everywhere. And it worked - K-Kid's act was damn near Oscar-worthy!" Celebrity Dirty Laundry reports.

It was truly a wise move, if the new report is true. Not only did it give Kendall another five minutes of fame, it also made people think she's missing the One Direction, especially Harry Styles a lot. In fact, just days after this incident, it has been reported that Kendall is begging Harry Styles for another chance to be his girlfriend.

"Now Kendall desperately wants him back," a source told Radar Online. "She loved the attention dating Harry gave her, plus she really fell for him big time."

"Kendall really opened up to him and he did nothing but use her," the source continued. "That hasn't stopped her from dreaming of a rematch and after a night out with the girls, she'll come home and start calling him.

"Harry rarely takes her calls because he knows when he's pushed his luck when it comes to a woman's heart and Kendall's got it bad for him. He doesn't want to encourage her, but it's turning into an embarrassing situation - for both of them," Radar Online continues.
