She kissed a boy — and he didn’t like it.
On Sunday’s season premiere of American Idol, judge Katy Perry surprised contestant Benjamin Glaze — who had never been kissed — with a smooch on the lips.
In an interview with The New York Times, the 19-year-old cashier from Enid, Oklahoma said, “I was a tad bit uncomfortable. I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special.”
He added, “Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no. 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.”
Adding insult to the kiss, Benjamin was rejected by all three judges.
