In May social media exploded with positivity when the formerly known Bruce Jenner announced her transition plans, after hiding from her desired female gender-preference for 65 years. She is the first Olympic gold medal athlete in my knowledge to do so, and on a recent episode of her new series ‘I Am Cait’, which documents her transition, she announced her selection of a new name: Caitlyn Marie Jenner.
After planning the move for months, and encouraged by her new group of fellow trans friends, she decided 10 days ago to submit a formal request to an LA judge to change her name legally. Once known as William Bruce Jenner, she cited her primary cause for her move as a need to “better match with her identity.” This amazing step for her will allow her to obtain a driver’s license and new social security card with a new name, and a whole new image to go with it!
In documents presented to the court, she is said to have written: “Although public support for my transition has been overwhelmingly supportive, I am also receiving unwelcome negative attention from private citizens, including threats of bodily harm.”
Caitlyn has spent this weekend celebrating this incredible step, and Instagrammed a photo of a floral delivery she’d received, and a Starbucks cup with her new name on it. She also took youngest daughter Kylie for a spin in her new Ferrari this week, saying that if she was going to have that kind of car, the girl had better know how to drive it right!
Simon Cowell never ceases to make me smile; it’s not a secret that I’ve harboured quite the crush on the music mogul for a while now, so I am particularly chuffed to hear that he might live to reach 95! I wonder if he’ll have ditched the grey/ white t-shirts by then, and invested in multiple wardrobe pieces…The brains behind ‘The X Factor‘ has confided to a journalist at ‘The Daily Mirror‘ that he’s taken medical steps to determine his predicted age.
“I had the DNA test done in LA which predicts when you’re going to die. They take your blood and DNA, then give you back a sheet of paper which says ‘We think you’re going to be alive until xxxx’. Obviously it doesn’t take account of the fact you might get hit by a bus tomorrow, but I got told I’d die aged 95 – which is about as good as you can expect.”
The 55-year-old, who has only become a father in his fifties, credits his new family man identity for his good health: “I think a lot of it is down to having a family now, and a lack of stress. I’ve learned to deal with stress much better now, things don’t bother me in the way that they once used to.” The doting Dad, who has taken to fatherhood with far more ease than the world anticipated, wrote on Twitter yesterday: “Now I have seen Jungle Book, Frozen and Up one million times with Eric can I have some film suggestions please. He likes dinosaurs.”
Now I’m worried he may have lived in LA too long!
Kanye has clearly thought of himself as a King for a while now, but in his latest move, has announced his plans to to Vanity Fair to up his game, and campaign for a 2020 US presidency bid. Speaking about himself for no doubt the millionth time this year so far, the soon-t-be- father of two divulged the following about his 2015 Video Music Awards announcement: “As soon as I said that, it was like, ‘Wait a second, we would really be into that, because actually if you think about it, he’s extremely thoughtful. Every time he’s ever gotten in trouble, he was really jumping in front of a bullet for someone else. He’s probably the most honest celebrity that we have.’ I didn’t approach that because I thought it would be fun. It wasn’t like, Oh, let’s go rent some jet skis in Hawaii. No, the exact opposite. I sit in clubs and I’m like, Wow, I’ve got five years before I go and run for office and I’ve got a lot of research to do, I’ve got a lot of growing up to do.”
The self declared anti-politics Yeezy, who last week unveiled his sophomore Adidas collection at NYFW, continued: “I hate politics. I’m not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that’s all I can say, and I think we can. My dad has two masters degrees. My mom has a PhD, she used to work at Operation PUSH. Somehow the more and more creative I get, the closer and closer I get to who I was as a child.”
So is this the end of Kanye‘s club days? Me thinks not. And more importantly, how will Kim dress as a First Lady?! One fan that would definitely be casting a vote for Kanye wrote on Twitter “I promise you I’m voting for Kanye West if he runs for president 2020. That is all. good night. PS: I’m for real. Lol.”
