[ # ] Katy Perry kissed a boy and he didn’t like it
March 14th, 2018 under American Idol 9+, Katy Perry

Remember on the season premiere of American Idol when Katy Perry forced a kiss on a 19-year-old boy who had never been kissed before? Well The New York Times found Benjamin Glaze and they asked him how he felt about it.

He told the paper, “I was a tad bit uncomfortable.” Then he explained why, “I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special.”

He also shared with them why he was saving himself, “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.”

When he got back home, he talked to his friends about it and they said it does not count. Does he feel that she sexually harassed him? He does not. But some people think that she did. If what he says is true, you have to wonder if she took something special away from him. Yes, he had his 15-minutes of fame because of it, but was it worth it? That is only for him to say. And he said, “I’m glad she did it because it’s a great opportunity to get my music out.”

When it comes to Glaze, I am sure his real first kiss will go down with a blaze of glory!

What do you think about the kiss?

UPDATE: Benjamin Glaze took to Instagram to clarify his comments. To read, then

Hi everyone, I would like to clear a few things up for everyone who is confused, concerned, Or angry. I am not complaining about the kiss from Katy Perry at all, doing a few news reports and being interviewed by many different reporters have caused some major questions. The way certain articles are worded is not done by me and my true intentions are not accurately represented in every article you read about the situation. I am not complaining about the kiss I am very honored and thankful to be apart of American Idol the main purpose for the show is to find stars and new music artist. I do wish i would have performed better in the moment. I should have picked another song to sing and calmed myself down regardless of the kiss i should have been able to perform under pressure. I do not think i was sexually harassed by Katy Perry and i am thankful for the judges comments and critiques. I was uncomfortable in a sense of how i have never been kissed before and was not expecting it. My main goal is to reach people through the universal love of music and not cause strife or anger against anyone or about any situation! Please take into consideration that I don’t believe my views have been appropriately communicated through the media! Thank you for everyone who has followed me in this journey and i hope i answered a few questions. #americanidol #katyperry #music

I still feel for Benjamin Glaze because she took something special for him and then kicked him to the curb when he did not perform up to her standards. How can anyone do well after that? Poor kid. Hopefully he will have better luck on The Voice where they don’t force themselves on the contestants.
