Meet Caitlyn Jenner: 'Bruce always had to tell a lie.. I am free'

It is time for Caitlyn Jenner to make her debut. Wearing a satin bodysuit and a content smile, Bruce Jenner's exterior matches how he has been feeling his entire life on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. The cover star of their July issue, shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, admits in the new interview: "If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, 'You just blew your entire life.'"

The new in-depth interview delves into the "tension and trauma" that surrounded Caitlyn and her family as she decided to transition. In a behind-the-scenes video, Caitlyn discusses how much this cover means to her. "The last few days of doing this shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It's not about the fanfare, it's not about people cheering in the stadium, it's not about going down the street and everybody giving you a 'Thatta boy' pat on the back, okay? "This is about your life."


Caitlyn adds: "Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie, every day, he always had a secret from morning to night. Caitlyn doesn't have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I am free."

Caitlyn has also set up a new Twitter account, with her first tweet being the picture of the cover, and a second reading: "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."

In an hour, Caitlyn had also garnered over 240,000 new followers, and her hashtag #CallMeCaitlyn began to trend. She also created a Facebook page where her first post read, “Everybody has challenges in dealing with life. I’m so happy after such a long struggle and finally living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. It feels so good. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.”
