Kris Jenner's 1985 music video unearthed

We know it was the '80s, but even that can’t excuse this self-made music video.

“Mom-ager” Kris Jenner’s ode to her friends was posted on YouTube, and it’s comedy gold. From the cheesy lyrics (which Kris wrote herself, with credits also going to Kourtney, Kim and Khloe) to the OJ Simpson cameo, this is an amazing Kardashian relic.

In the video, Kris sings of her pals - her "joy and pride" - and gives shout-outs to their favorite activities, like carpooling, bible study, tennis and going to the Cheesecake Factory. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star also gives a hint to her daughters’ future careers: “We’re gonna party ‘til we just can’t party no more!”

According to the YouTube description, “I Love My Friends” was a 30th birthday gift for Kris from then-husband Robert Kardashian, the late father of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian.

    It's painfully sad the writer of the article did not think to mention how both the song and the video are based on Randy Newman's "I Love LA."

      Come on. Cut her some slack. This was the 80's, and it was completely acceptable to produce cheesy videos like this back then. Besides, this was a video strictly for her friends, and I think that is sweet.

    For the next phase of America's space program, may I respectfully suggest putting the entire Kardashian/Jenner family on the first flight to Alpha Centauri with no radio communication equipment and no mirrors. Happily, I'll be DEAD by the time they arrive, and in the meantime, the Earth will have been saved from their offspring (more narcissists). Of course, with my luck, Ryan Seacrest will insist on creating a new television series "Keeping (fed) up with the Flying Kardashians", and we'll be forced to endure even more of their useless blather – – not only from the empty space between their ears, but this time from outer space, too.

    In a time where our country is going homeless, jobless, and hungry,why are these bling bling ppl rubbing our noses in their lives CONSTANTLY! I mean really. Limo's and fancy dinners,parties, and drinking til all hours of the morning. We keep making them more famous /richer with every magazine we buy,news channels splatter them all up on their websites to boost their ratings. Enough is enough already. What they blow on clothes in a week would feed a poor family for a month or more. Lavish,or just plain greedy at our expense. If I had a magic lamp and could wish something for them,it would be for them to humble themselves and apologize to the world for their unmindful behaviors then go home and live like the rest of us do...

    For those who saw the OJ picture, you should also note the Kris Jenner's video also showed a picture of Nicole Brown as on the friends "she loves"... then her former husband and Kim Kardashian's father join OJ Simpson's Defense Team, and helped him get away with killing Nicole. I guess she only loves the living friends.....

      She had privilege and chose a great husband. She then had a great life and great friends. I think any husband who would do this for his wife is very sweet and shows what a great love he had for her. Kris Jenner has the love of her kids and a great many friends. She leads a great life and I would be her friend any day. The only thing that is sad is how her kids treat her with no respect because she and Bruce don't draw the solid lines and enforce their meaning so their kids love their parents absolutely, but they get away with being creepy to them especially Khloe and Kourtney, who show the younger ones what to laugh at. If Mr. Kardashian were still here those kids wouldn't even THINK about using the HORRIBLE language they do. His loss is seen all over his son Rob, who has no course for life. He doesn't know what to do with himself with so many sisters getting so much attention and his behaviour is at times atrocious. He really suffers from having no male role model, his father. But as far as this video, I think it is really sweet–if you think of your mom's having fun like this and having a supportive father who cared about her the way he so obviously did. And yes, I know they got divorced. And I feel very sorry for what he went through and what his kids have gone through since with his passing. I wish he were still here, it's too much for a family to go through life without their father and it shows in his kids behaviours–which shows their sarcasm and boundary-less-ness where their father wouldn't have permitted any of that. But again, it is in my opinion from a lot of feelings attached to the divorce and later death of their father, I just wish Kris would draw a line for her kids' own good so they would show the respect toward her she deserves simply by virtue of her being their mother. Cute video
