Kesha Talks About Failed Hug with Jerry Seinfeld

Kesha is opening up about her failed attempt to hug idol Jerry Seinfeld!

The 30-year-old “Praying” singer’s attempt to hug the comedian went viral after he was caught on video turning her request down.

“I felt like I was 5 years old,” Kesha told SiriusXM’s Hits1 in Hollywood about how she felt after the incident. “I instantly was like, ‘Oh f–k me.’ And I like somehow ended up in my very own mini-episode of Seinfeld for like five seconds.”

“I’ve seen every episode a thousand times,” she added. “I used to carry the whole season package with me everywhere on my carry-on. Like DVDs… That’s why I wanted a hug so hard.”

“He’s not a huggy guy, that’s fine,” Kesha concluded, adding that she knew the moment would go everywhere. “I should have known better. I’ve seen the hugging episode. That was my fault.”

Kesha also talked about meeting her idol Bob Dylan and the amazing hugs he gave her. Listen below!

    you interrupted an interview, walked up to a stranger, and ass-clenchingly embarrassingly kept pushing for a hug. no wonder he said no

  • tom

    she could’ve picked a better moment but she wanted it to be on camera

    that was so embarrassing. i don’t think she had bad intentions but it really isn’t appropriate to interrupt him during an interview. but her response was hilarious – she’s seen the hugging episode and should have known better. a good way to handle an embarrassing situation.

    I respect him for saying “no thank you” to a hug from a virtual stranger without being rude, he was polite but firm even though she was insistent. How many times do we as adults (male & female) give in to unwanted contact (hugs, handshakes and kisses) because we don’t want to seem rude or standoffish.

    She seems somewhat contrite about the incident & acknowledges her mistake.
