It was Caitlyn Jenner’s first major public appearance since announcing she is transgender, and last night at the ESPY Awards, the Olympic gold medalist stunned on stage as she accepted the Aurthur Ashe Courage Award which is meant to honor those whose contributions “transcend sports through courageous action.”
According to Buzzfeed, “Jenner used the platform of her highly anticipated appearance at ESPN’s annual ESPY Awards to introduce herself as perhaps the most well-known and public advocate for greater acceptance of trans people since her big debut on the cover of Vanity Fair in June. ‘I know I’m clear with my responsibility going forward, to tell my story the right way — for me, to keep learning, to reshape the landscape of how trans issues are viewed, how trans people are treated. And then more prominently to promote a very simple idea: Accepting people for who they are.’
“It’s not just about me, it’s about all of us accepting one another,” she said. “We’re all different — that’s not a bad thing, that’s a good thing.”
On another ESPY Award note…
Everyone is asking me if I saw JJ Watt there with his rumored girlfriend Catherine Wozniacki (who looked amazing in the red dress she had on), and YES I did see them…but did you catch the OTHER blonde he was with?! It was none other than BRITNEY SPEARS, who he presented Best Female Athlete with.
Brit Brit better watch it next to my man… Ok, just kidding. Kind of. #cries #tearsofjealousy #dyingmyhairblonde

Remember when George Clooney said he’d never get married again, but then got married? Oh, and then when he said that fatherhood might not be for him either?
Well looks like those feelings may have changed a bit…
According to reports over at US Weekly, George and his wife Amal may be trying to get pregnant. A source said they recently visited a fertility clinic and, quote, “She isn’t taking on extra work at the moment” just in case it happens.
They’ve also included a nursery in the renovation plans on their $15 million English estate. Hmmmm…
Justin Bieber stripped down for a new piece in “Interview” magazine. All the pics taken are of the Bibs shirtless, and some of them show him wearing a Pennywise the Clown mask from the movie “It”. Can we say CREEPY??
Martha Stewart did the interview, (the two must be besties now after Martha was at his Comedy Central Roast) and Justin says he’s single, and that he graduated from high school with a 4.0. Do with that what you will, lol. Take a look at these pics:
