Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande Sam Smith + More Respond to Bruce Jenner Interview
Since Bruce Jenner opened up about his transition to become a woman on ABC 20/20, everyone from Hollywood to the music industry have shared their thoughts about his struggle with gender identity, his bravery opening up about it and many other moments during the interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday night (April 24).
Lady Gaga had many things to say about Bruce's talk with Diane and reflected Twitter. She called him courageous and hoped that this will increase tolerance in society. "I pray this Sawyer/Jenner interview will be met with compassion. This is an important world issue. #BeBraveEnoughToBeKind," she tweeted.
Meanwhile Ariana Grande was so touched by the former Olympian and reality TV star and hoped we would be less judgmental. "Bruce Jenner is beautiful we all need to commit to making this world a more loving, supportive, SAFE /non judgemental place to be ourselves," she wrote on Twitter.
Sam Smith was inspired by what Bruce said last night and called out all those who were going to hate on his message. "Absolutely flawed at how courageous and brave Bruce Jenner is. So inspiring and so powerful. Shame on anyone who dare judge x," the "I'm Not the Only One" singer said via Twitter.
Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees felt Bruce's story resonated with his own journey and coming out of the closet.
Before the interview aired, Elton John shared his thoughts on Bruce Jenner. "It's an incredibly brave thing to do, especially when you're older," the legendary pop singer told Access Hollywood via US Weekly. "I admire him for doing it and I support him 100 percent."
