Believe it or not I was actually going to entitle this blog post Call me Caitlyn when I first heard the news about July's Vanity Fair cover (this was before I saw it of course), but in the interest of not being sued for copyright I decided to change the title.
It has been a big week of Kardashian news, with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announcing the impending arrival of their second child on Sunday, but what has really taken the world by storm is when Kardashian's step-father formerly known to everyone as Bruce Jenner unveiled 'her' new name and look in July's issue of Vanity Fair, so I'd like to introduce you to...Caitlyn Jenner everyone!
Many well-wishers have congratulated Jenner on the debut, including the White House, and of course the Kardashian clan. "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me" Jenner tweeted. On the Vanity Fair cover the 65-year-old former Olympian is wearing a cream-coloured strapless bodysuit and has long brown hair.
The reality TV star quickly broke President Obama's record of gaining one million Twitter followers in the shortest time, with her new @Caitlyn_Jenner account. "Caitlyn Jenner" and the hashtag #CallMeCaitlyn quickly skyrocketed to the top of Twitter's trending topics in the US and worldwide.
I think I've said it before but I will reiterate again, even though I'm an entertainment news blogger I actually can't stand the Kardashians. I think Caitlyn Jenner is just as attention-seeking as the rest of the family, that being said though I do wish her luck and all the best with this new chapter of life. I just hope that these changes are being done for the right reasons, and it's not some extreme publicity stunt to gain the most Twitter followers, compete with the Kardashian family phenomenon, or some other silly thing.
I'd love to hear your opinions and thoughts on this one! So feel free to leave your comments in the comment box below!
