Kim's iconic crying face has been making headlines ever since the second season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when she cried during a family cabin trip. Kourtney Kardashian, who clearly wasn't bothered by the camera or her sister's tears, couldn't stop laughing at her crying face. In a confessional during the episode, Kourtney explained, "She has this ugly crying face that she makes."

But Kim takes it all in stride, even finding humor in her own crying face. In fact, back in 2012, after crying continuously during her troubled marriage with Kris Humphries, she joked about her crying face on her blog, "Ok, I have to admit I do not look cute crying. LOL! And I do cry a lot." She even linked to a gallery of her many crying faces because that's just how she rolls. So here's a shoutout to Kim and Katy and their ugly cry faces. Two queens bonding over something so relatable has brought us joy and laughter that we didn't know we needed. Keep those crying faces coming, ladies! We adore them.
