Caitlyn Jenner Gushes After Meeting Boy George on I Am Cait: 'How Lucky We Are'
The reality star looked up to the singer back in the '80s when she had all her 'issues'
Caitlyn Jenner can definitely fangirl.
The reality star, 65, did just that when she met Boy George, an icon in the LGBTQ community, during a backstage meet-and-greet for one of the British singer’s concerts.
“I remember you back in the ’80s, and I had obviously all my issues and this and that, and obviously I followed you,” Jenner gushes to George with her hands on his shoulders. “And I’m so glad to see you back and be here tonight and celebrate that.”
“Do you know what it is, what I think is that you – like you’re getting a little bit older, you kind of operate from a different level of consciousness,” George replies. “You know, you have this wonderful opportunity to do so much good. When I was 19 I was so full of my self-importance. I can’t say that I was leading a political thing, it was just me being myself, which in itself is quite powerful.”
“Absolutely, how lucky we are,” Jenner says.
“I think you’re going to get a standing ovation,” George says backstage to Jenner, whom he had asked to introduce him to the crowd. “I’d be very surprised if they don’t stand up and I’ll be very disappointed if they don’t.”
And the concertgoers certainly deliver, cheering for the former Olympian when she appears on stage.
“We need to celebrate the kinds of changes that are happening,” George told the crowd, according to Entertainment Tonight.
