Bruce Jenner has already had quite the year — and it’s only May (well barely, but still). He came out as transgender, and then, oh yeah, killed someone with his car. He’s definitely been making headlines, for better or for worse. So is that enough to warrant a Vanity Fair cover? Rumor has it, yes. Bruce is finally going to step into his own and cover Vanity Fair, and it’s going to be shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz, who, let’s be honest, has been phoning it in for the past 20 years. But anyway, here’s what PEOPLE has to report:
Bruce Jenner has posed for his share of magazine covers over the years, from Sports Illustrated to GQ. But now, the former Olympian has landed an upcoming cover of Vanity Fair, Jenner’s first print photo shoot and interview since revealing in April that he is transiting from male to female, multiple sources tell PEOPLE.
Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz will shoot the cover, an industry source says.
[…] Jenner, 65, who calls his female identity “Her,” will appear as a woman in the Vanity Fair pictorial, to hit stands this summer, the source tells PEOPLE.
So, I guess it’s not the most outrageous bit of celeb gossip I’ve ever heard, and if it were to happen, I wouldn’t be shocked. Even though Kim hasn’t made the cover (yet), I guess it’s not totally surprising that Bruce would beat her to it, considering the life he’s had. I would be interested in reading the interview, but not enough to actually buy the issue.
What about you guys? Would Bruce pique your interest?
