Kylie Jenner appears to have secured herself a new best friend.
A Coachella Instagram update showing the Kylie Cosmetics CEO with an apparent new “BFF” was picked up on by The Metro on April 15, 2019. Full coverage of Tana Mongeau’s possible new status as Jordyn Woods’ replacement was detailed by The Inquisitr on the same day.
The obvious next step is finding out a bit more about this mystery girl.
Tana Mongeau is a 20-year-old internet personality and rapper whose multi-faceted career also sees her credited as a model. Mongeau was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her Instagram account boasts 3.2 million followers, a YouTube link, and an amusing bio – Mongeau considers herself to have “no talent,” but concludes that she “isn’t bad for a 5.”
Tana’s Coachella selfie with Kylie isn’t the first high-profile association for this rising star, though. Mongeau dated actress Bella Thorne for over a year, Teen Vogue reports. This couple called it quits in February of 2019, however. While the fledgling friendship with Kylie Jenner appears to be platonic, it’s nonetheless proving to be a giant headline-maker. The Coachella selfie posted to Tana’s Instagram is inching its way towards 1 million likes.
Tana has been in the news before this latest blow-up, though. In June of 2018, The Verge described Mongeau’s attempts to create her own TanaCon convention as a “disaster.” TanaCon emerged as Mongeau’s apparent solution to having been denied a “Featured Creator” badge at VidCon. As a prominent YouTube personality, one with over 3.9 million subscribers, the content creator appears to feel that her VIP wishes should have been catered to.
Tana’s YouTube videos span a range of subject matters. They cover her travels to Mykonos, Greece — and attempts at model Alexis Ren’s workouts. Instagram seems to be where it’s at, though. With risqué underwear snaps, the modeling of thong bikinis, and shares of romantic snaps with her boyfriend, this girl is on-trend.
Tana’s career began on Snapchat. Her controversial videos include one titled “The N Word.” Elsewhere, Tana has released music – her debut single, “Hefner,” came out in November of 2017.

Given Mongeau’s Twitter behavior, she appears to be doing all the right things. Attending Ariana Grande’s concerts has basically become a status symbol. Mentioning both the Sweetener singer and the celebrity-adored Coachella festival in one tweet shows that Tana is savvy when it comes to social media status.
Tana’s Instagram account is followed by Bella Thorne, and models Tammy Hembrow and Sofia Jamora. Tana, herself, follows Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian — as well as Kylie Jenner. Tana also follows Jordyn Woods.
Given this recent news, though, Tana may well become the new Jordyn Woods.
