American Idol Teen Did Not Like Katy Perry's On-Air Kiss

American Idol Teen Did Not Like Katy Perry's On-Air Kiss”

Katy Perry famously gave Benjamin Glaze his first kiss on American Idol, but the former reality show hopeful doesn't consider it his first real smooch.

"It wasn't that she was older; it wasn't the fact that I was creeped out by it, or feeling like I'd been taken advantage of", Glaze explains to Inside Edition after saying that the discomfort came from Perry being a stranger. And a ideal example is what happened in an episode of American Idol.

"'I was a tad bit uncomfortable", Glaze told The New York Times.

Glaze explained on an episode broadcast this week that he had never kissed anyone before and had wanted to save the experience for a relationship.

He continued, "Would I have done it if she said, 'Would you kiss me?' No, I would have said no". "'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 am not complaining about the kiss from Katy Perry at all, doing a few news reports and being interviewed by many different reporters has caused some major questions.

Despite his disappointment, he says he does not feel like he was sexually harassed. It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about. 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. The main objective for the show is to find stars and new music artist. "I should have been able to perform under pressure". "Glaze confessed to the judges that he had never been kissed before after he mentioned that he enjoyed his work as a cashier because it let him meet 'cute girls". But Benjamin Glaze is downplaying some backlash aimed at Perry, who is a judge on the show.

"No, I've never been in a relationship", the contestant responded. I am actually just thankful that I didn't say something stupid. He also said that he's grateful for the opportunity to have met Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie, even if he didn't make it to Hollywood. Perry said, and they repeated it again. Then, she requested him for a second kiss on the cheek. During his interview with People, Glaze said that he doesn't think Perry sexually harassed him.
