Most men would lose their mind if the beautiful pop star Katy Perry allowed them to kiss her…twice. However on the premiere episode of the American Idol Reboot, when judge Perry laid a surprise lip lock on never been kissed weirdo contestant Benjamin Glaze his reaction afterwards was very surprising.
“I was a tad bit uncomfortable,” Glaze, a cashier from Enid, Oklahoma, told The New York Times in a new interview. “I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special.”
“Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no,” Glaze said. “I know a lot of guys would be like, ‘Heck yeah!’ But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately. I wanted my first kiss to be special.”
The unwanted kiss occurred after Glaze entered the audition room and judge Luke Bryan referenced Perry’s 2008 hit “I Kissed a Girl,” asking: “Have you kissed a girl and liked it?” Glaze said he hadn’t, adding, “I have never been in a relationship and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.” Perry proceeded to beckon to Glaze, telling him, “Come here.” Glaze approached the pop star, said “One on the cheek?” and gave Perry a smooch on the face before she quickly planted one on his mouth.
Glaze told the Times he does not view the kiss as sexual harassment and actually appreciated the added screen time, as his audition did not advance him to the competition’s next round in Hollywood.
“So in that way,” he told the newspaper, “I’m glad she did it because it’s a great opportunity to get my music out.”
There’s something that needs to come out bro but it ain’t your music. Not meaning that in a derogatory way, but this is pretty damn weird that a guy isn’t treating this moment, a first kiss no less, as the greatest moment of his life. It’s all downhill from here kid….
