Who or what is a Pia Mia? We have set out to give you an answer. You may have heard of Kylie Jenner‘s best friend because she keeps popping up on the social-media accounts of all the Kardashians, and she’s got a huge social following of her own. What’s her deal? We’re breaking it down.
1. She is a talented singer.
If you’re a teenager with a webcam these days, you probably upload videos of yourself regularly, singing the pop hits of the moment. Pia has been doing that for years, too, but she’s recently upped the production value so you can imagine an album of her own is on the way. Especially considering….
2. She gets to showcase that talent with some special folks.
3. She has an extremely cool style (and corresponding Tumblr).
We’ve learned how important a well-curated Tumblr account is for one’s personal style; an entire episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was dedicated to Kim Kardashian explaining how jealous she was of little sister Kylie’s cool Tumblr and fashion sense. Pia’s account is full of stylish pics of the two most important cultural arbiters of our time, Kanye West and Rihanna.
4. She is at the center of the (teenaged) Los Angeles social scene.
Pia hangs with Kylie, Nicole Richie‘s little sister Sofia, Vanessa Hudgens‘ little sister Stella, Jaden Smith, and assorted other people who probably would have been the popular clique in your high school.
5. It’s her birthday today!
She turning 17. What had you accomplished by 17? Zero friendships with Drake? Right, yes, got it.
