Kesha and Jerry Seinfeld

Kesha and Jerry Seinfeld


During an interview on The Best Show with Tom Scharpling, Kesha revealed how she had felt when Jerry Seinfeld refused to hug her when they met on the red carpet in 2017. The encounter was caught on camera, while Seinfeld told Kesha “No, thanks,” after she had asked him for a hug. “I don’t know who that was,” he added after Kesha left.

“So, [Lynch] was like, ‘Could you do an event that’s a charity event?’ I was in the middle of tour. I was exhausted, but I really love David Lynch, and I heard that Jerry Seinfeld’s gonna to be there,” Kesha started the story during the interview. She then went on to explain how much she admires and enjoys Seinfeld. “When it got bumpy on planes, I’d pop in Seinfeld and I’d be like, ‘Everything’s OK in the world’ and watch my buddy,” she said. 

“Then, I get to the f—ing charity event, and I got really excited because he brings me peace and love and all things good in the universe, and then he didn’t hug me in front of cameras. It was the most depressing and hilarious, but also so sad — it was, like, the saddest moment of my life.” Kesha added.
