This week we learned that Jerry Seinfeld is not a hugger or a Kesha fan.
The revelation was made Monday on the red carpet for A Night of Laughter and Song at the Kennedy Center. Jerry was in the middle of an interview when the singer interrupted and said, “I love you so much. Can I give you a hug?” The comedian said “no thanks” to the hug request. She said “Please?” but Jerry wasn’t having it and backed up saying “No, thanks.” Kesha finally got the message and walked off.
Seinfeld then told the reporter, “I don’t know who that was.” The reporter told him it was Kesha. But that didn’t seem to ring any bells for the comedian, who said, “Oh, OK. Well, I wish her the best.”
