‘Sweetness:’ Justin Bieber Praised By Kendall Jenner’s Mom After Photo Shoot

Justin Bieber has his critics. But Kris Jenner isn’t one of them.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians matriarch took to her social media accounts today to praise the singer. Posting an Instagram photo of herself with Justin, the momager’s caption read, “Yep, he would give you the shirt….oops I mean sunglasses, right off his back!!!”

The 59-year-old continued, “Thanks for the amazing Sunnies @justinbieber….love you!!! #sweetness.”

On Saturday, Justin — who is a longtime friend of the Kardashian-Jenner clan — shared an Instagram shot from a Beverly Hills photo shoot, which included Kendall Jenner, model Gigi Hadid and her beau, Australian teen star, Cody Simpson.

In the snap, Kendall — who is the face of Estee Lauder and Karl Lagerfeld — wore a retro, red mini-dress complete with what appeared to be embroidered panels and sheer top half.

The in-demand model wore her dark hair straight, capping her look with high black boots.

Gigi — who is the face of Maybelline New York — also rocked a retro outfit. The 19-year-old is seen in a red and blue mini-dress covered in motifs, with gold-colored borders in the center. The blonde finished off her ensemble with black ankle boots.

Her boyfriend also stepped up the glamour. The “Surfboard” singer cut a dapper look in a skinny black suit with a white shirt.

Meanwhile, Justin wore a black T-shirt and matching leather pants.

During the photo shoot, which may have been in support of Justin and Cody’s forthcoming duets album, Justin was snapped holding Kendall around her waist. The usual gossip sites have built a romance narrative around the innocuous shot, because that is what they do.

But, it seems Kris found the singer’s on-set behavior to be “sweetness” itself.

Last week, the “Confident” singer posted an emotional video diary after what he described as his “nervous” appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, to celebrate the host’s 57th birthday.

In the clip, shared to his Fahlo and Facebook accounts, Justin confessed to fans, “I’m not who I was pretending to be” on Wednesday night.

He went on to say, “I think I was nervous because I was afraid of what people are thinking about me right now. It’s been a minute since I’ve been in a public appearance, and I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited or basically how I’ve been acting the past year and a half.”

Justin Bieber fans expressed their support by trending “WeDontJudgeYouJustin” for hours on Twitter almost immediately after the singer posted the video.

Kris Jenner, is one of their number.
