Kanye West Meets Caitlyn Jenner In The Premiere Of E!’s “I Am Cait”
Kanye West made an appearance on the premiere of Caitlyn Jenner’s new reality show I Am Cait.
Kanye West Appears On I Am Cait
The documentary series, broadcasted on E!, was announced just after Jenner revealed her transition in April. The first episode of I Am Cait began with Caitlyn Jenner introducing herself and her new identity to the world, including her family.
West showed up at Jenner’s Malibu house with his wife Kim Kardashian — who wanted to see Caitlyn for the first time after her transition was done. “Kanye and I have never really been very close,” said Jenner about that moment. “But I love his open-mindedness, and I love how he’s help Kim come to grips with what’s going on.”
“F—K EVERYBODY, THIS IS WHO I AM”
During his first time meeting Caitlyn, Kanye praised Jenner for her strength in her transition, saying that he thinks “this is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings that are so controlled by perception.”
He added, “‘Cause you couldn’t have been up against more. Your daughter’s a supermodel, you’re a celebrity… Every type of thing, and it was still like, ‘f—k everybody, this is who I am.”
Kimye also talked a little fashion with the group, with Kim saying that, since her pregnancy “nothing hardly fits anymore,” and Kanye explaining what kind of sorcery makes his untied shoes stay on his feet.
I Am Cait featured other very emotional moments, such as the first time Kylie Jenner met Caitlyn after transition, or Caitlyn speaking about the moments of doubt she had when she was still living as a man. “I’ve had some very dark moments in my life,” she told the audience. “I’ve been in my house with a gun and said, ‘Let’s just end it right here.’ That struggle, it’s real and I’ve been there.”
Jenner gave a real message of hope to the transgender youth, who she hopes won’t experience the same struggles she did through her life.
I Am Cait airs each Sunday at 8:00 p.m. on E!
Kanye West Drops Mic Mid-Performance At Pan Am Games
West also made headlines this weekend by dropping his mic off at the Pan Am Games’ closing ceremony on Sunday night in Toronto, Canada. After a 13-minutes set, West threw the microphone in the air and walked off the stage calmly. He apparently cut off his set because of the sound’s mediocre quality and other technical difficulties.

Also, during a four-night Paris residency last week, West premiered the awaited nine-minutes long music video of his song “All Day”, directed by Steve McQueen, featuring a new song titled “I Feel Like That.” Someone captured it but it has been removed from YouTube — you can still watch it at DDotOmen though.
