Kanye West reveals his softer side in the season premiere for I Am Cait.
The much anticipated premiere of Caitlyn Jenner's series I Am Cait, was full of emotional and eye-opening moments. But perhaps the most memorable, was Kanye West's words of praise for the former Olympian turned transgender advocate.
The rapper said that Jenner's transition is "one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings that are controlled by perception."
"You couldn't have been up against more," Kanye explained. "Like, your daughter is a supermodel, you're a celebrity, you have every type of thing, and it was still like, 'f---k everybody, this is who I am."
The praise did not go unnoticed. Caitlyn went on to explain how Kanye helped Kim deal with the transition.
“Kanye and I have never really been very close, but I love his open-mindedness,” Jenner said. “I love how he’s helped Kim come to grips with what’s going on.”
