While most people would be mortified after being publicly curved by a celebrity, Kesha is taking it all in stride.
Last month, Kesha attempted to hug Jerry Seinfeld on the red carpet and was met with a meme-spawning rejection.
Reflecting on her embarrassing moment, Kesha explained, “I instantly was like, ‘Oh f-k me,’ And I somehow ended up in my very own mini-episode of Seinfeld for like five seconds.”
Torn between toning down her desire to hug, she added, “I had a moment where I was thinking to myself, wow, maybe I should stop trying to hug everyone and, like, ‘attack’ them, and then I was like, fuck that, no. I like hugging…Hugging is magical. Hugging is beautiful. It’s this beautiful exchange of wonderful soul, energy.”
Kesha may been “hug traumatized” after her run-in with the veteran comedian, but a chance encounter with one of her faves made up for it.
“Then the most wonderful thing happened. My idol, like in life, Bob Dylan agreed to meet up with me because we were playing the same festival. So I walked up and I just stood there and smiled, and he just opened his beautiful arms and gave me the most wonderful, healing, Bob Dylan hug that I have ever dreamt of and I just could care less about anything else,” she beamed.
Good for her! Get your hug on Kesha!
As you can see with Kesha, not all first encounters go over well. Take a look at this meeting between Donald Trump, Audrina and her mom .
