Well, it's that awkward time of year when some Americans are in the giddy early stages of swimsuit season, while others are still scraping the frost off their windshields every morning.
As you can see in the photo below, Kendall Jenner and her friends are firmly (no pun intended) in the former category:
Yes, Kendall Jenner in a bikini isn't exactly a rare sight, but the 20-year-old model is more judicious with her partial nudity than her sisters, so this photo tribute to butts comes as somewhat of a surprise.
If nothing else, it's a welcome distraction from the latest Kendall coverage, which has been surprisingly negative.
Usually the most scandal-free member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kendall has been wrapped up in two weird controversies in recent weeks, though in fairness, neither is her fault.
First, Kendall was accused of punching a photographer, but she later denied it, and several witnesses corroborated her story.
That same week, we learned that Scott Disick is dating a Kendall lookalike. Again, not her fault, but more eyebrow-raising scrutiny than Kendall is accustomed to.
So it's nice to see KJ relaxing, chillin' poolside and getting some sun with her friends.
Of course, if they're not careful, those girls are gonna end up with some serious tan lines. Just sayin'.
