Didn’t this year feel like a lifetime? Let me help refresh your memory on some of the most memorable moments in pop culture this year.
The Perfect Stormi
Kylie Jenner jump-started the year by giving birth to Stormi Webster with boyfriend Travis Scott. Big sister, Kim Kardashian called the pregnancy the “best-kept secret of our generation.” I don’t think Kim understands the definition of secret, we knew she was pregnant, Kylie just didn’t confirm it.
