The moment when Kesha and Jerry Seinfeld met for the first time has surely become very famous and has managed to draw a lot of attention. It was all because of Seinfeld’s reaction to the famous singer, completely rejecting her and refusing to give her a hug. As imagined, Jerry dealt with a lot of criticism after that moment and it seems that the popular actor did not know who the singer was.
Kesha did not say too much after the incident occurred, but the star decided now to open up. She said that it was a mistake to try to hug Seinfeld while telling him that she was a big fan. “That was my fault,” Kesha said. However, it seems that the star was not much hurt after the incident occurred. In fact, the star laughed off that moment.
Kesha commented on this moment during an appearance on the Hits 1 in Hollywood show. The famous singer said she felt like a child. The event occurred on the red carpet of National Night of Laughter in Washington, D.C. “I felt like I was 5 years old,” Kesha explained. “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,” Kesha also said.
But, the young singer definitely did not seem too upset over what happened. And when being asked if she had a message for Seinfeld, the singer said: “I should’ve known better… That was my fault.” On the other hand, during a previous interview, Jerry Seinfeld also talked about his refusal to hug the famous singer.
“I’m 63, I don’t know every pop star,” the comedian said during an interview with Extra. “I don’t know everyone,” he went on to add. Seinfeld went on to say that because he did not know her, he couldn’t have accepted to hug her. “I was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off,” the star explained.
“When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality, in my reality, I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say hello. I gotta start somewhere … hug isn’t first moment of a human, two humans. I never did that.” Seinfeld also said that he talked to Kesha after the incident and they both laughed about it.
