Isn’t it just a pain in the neck when you are giving an interview and a pop star you have never heard of comes up asking for a hug? Well that is exactly how Jerry Seinfeld felt during his red carpet interview when Kesha interrupted him.
In the clip, Seinfeld was conducting an interview with radio host Tommy McFly on the red carpet at The David Lynch Foundation’s National Night of Laughter and Song on Monday night, when pop singer Kesha decided that she must have a hug.
Jerry wasn’t having any of it.
The cringe-worthy moment happens as Seinfeld is telling the interviewer, “It’s hard to just sleep when you’re tired because people are tired most of the time.”
Kesha, known for her song “Tik Tok,” spots the former TV star and rushes to his side.
“I’m Kesha, I love you so much,” she said. “Can I give you a hug?”
“No, thanks,” he says after clearly spotting the crazy in her eyes.
Kesha, undeterred pushes, “Please?”
“No, thanks,” he says again.
Kesha then begs, “A little one?”
“Yeah, no thanks,” Seinfeld says backing away.
Yes, he denied her three times. A truly biblical shutdown.
Seinfeld and McFly had a good laugh about the interaction as he admits he didn’t know who the woman was. McFly informed him that he had just brushed off Kesha.
McFly tweeted out the moment saying that Kesha just found out Jerry Seinfeld is not a hugger:
