Kanye West proud of Caitlyn Jenner
Kanye West is proud that he married into the Kardashian-Jenner family, partly because of family patriarch Caitlyn Jenner.
When asked if he was bothered how people would react to him being related to a transgender, Kanye said: “…But then it was like, ‘F–k what people say. F–k what people think.'”
“I just feel so proud to be in a family that has so many people breaking ground for the generations to come…I feel proud… that I can be next to a wave of ‘this is who I am.’ And that is all I’m about.”
“To let your life be controlled by public opinion would be like asking to sit in traffic for the rest of your life,” he said. “Meaning, you want to turn this way, but there’s a car right here that says this… That’s public opinion….And Bruce just got off [at] the exit sign and drove as fast as he wanted.”
He immediately apologized for calling Caitlyn by her old name Bruce, saying he was still getting used to it all.
“Oh, I’m sorry. It’s disrespectful to use that name. I’m sorry,” West said before admitting, “I’m still getting acquainted with what’s politically correct and not politically correct, because it’s new, it’s modern.”
