American Idol contestant defends Katy Perry’s kiss, says he was not sexually harassed
An American idol contestant, Benjamin Glaze who is 19-years-old got a kiss from American singer, Katy Perry, 33 after he revealed he had never dated/kissed a girl before.
Benjamin Glaze told the show’s judges that he liked his job as a cashier because it allowed him to meet a lot of “cute girls.” When judge Luke Bryan jokingly asked if he’d “kissed a girl and liked it,” the 19-year-old replied, “I have never been in a relationship, and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.”
And that’s when Katy Perry asked him to peck her on the cheek twice and in the process, she quickly stole a moment kiss with the 19-year-old.
Katy Perry was lashed at saying she sexually harassed Glaze, but the 19-year-old has played down the controversy.
“I do not think I was sexually harassed by Katy Perry and I am thankful for the judges comments and critiques,”
On Wednesday, Glaze clarified on Instagram that he doesn’t feel as though he was harassed.
