"I started to really appreciate his talent."
"It's like the thing that you did in the '80s with those pop magazines. Now it's the Housewives who do it! But in the '80s, you just said vile things about everyone."

"Devastating. What a beautiful voice he had and his music will live on as a testament to his talent. I can't believe he is gone."

"It was one of my big sorrows that I never got to meet him."

Boy George revealed Jenner even helped him with The New Celebrity Apprentice, adding that she is "hardly conservative" and "very brave."

"She's hardly conservative — I mean what she's does is incredible, very brave."
