Although Kanye has been relatively camera shy and doesn’t appear too often on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, he did pop up on ‘I Am Cait’, the new series documenting Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition. Caitlyn speaks to the camera, first explaining her relationship with the rapper:
‘Kanye and I have never really been very close but I love his open mindedness and I love how he has helped Kim come to grips with what is going on.’
Then, Kanye speaks to Caitlyn, commenting on how brave she has been to make the decision to go public regarding her gender transition:
‘I think this is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings, that are so controlled by perception. You couldn’t have been up against more. Your daughter is a supermodel, you are a celebrity and you were still like f*** everybody, this is who I am.’
In the episode, Kim also goes into Caitlyn’s wardrobe and checks out some of the new clothes Caitlyn has purchased for her changing body. Kim remarks:
‘These colour tones are so much better than what you had before. I was secretly dying in your last closet.’
The first episode of the series has been highly praised for how it has honestly portrayed Caitlyn’s transition.
