Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit the red carpet in black crop tops to celebrate their DuJour magazine cover in New York on Aug. 28. In between posing for the paparazzi, the reality stars addressed that controversial VMAs moment.

At the VMAs last weekend, it appeared that Kim Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner were texting during a moment of silence to acknowledge the events in Ferguson, Missouri. Buzzfeed notes that this may have simply been an unfortunate camera delay, but nevertheless, some people were outraged.

"I just specifically remember not texting and bowing my head down for the moment of silence and that's all I have to say about that," Kendall Jenner told Huffpost Entertainment about the situation.

The 18-year-old fashion model also recently made headlines for dropping her last name, to professionally go by Kendall. She told HuffPost Entertainment she's surprised her name change is just getting media attention now.

"I did that last season as well, so I'm surprised it's just starting to become a story. It's not that big of a deal," she said.
