Earlier this week, Jerry Seinfeld was interrupted mid-interview by Kesha at the National Night of Laughter and Song. Kesha said she loved him so much and wanted to give him a hug but he refused not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES!
Jerry spoke to Extra and explained why he said no.
“I’m 63, I don’t know every pop star… I don’t know everyone. I was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off…When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality, in my reality… I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say hello. I gotta start somewhere… hug isn’t first moment of a human, two humans. I never did that.”
“I’m sure I would’ve liked her, but I need to know who are you. She was very nice about it, we laughed about it.”
