American Idol Contestant Said Katy Perry’s Kiss Wasn’t Harassment But “Uncomfortable”

Katy Perry once kissed a girl and liked it but a contestant from Oklahoma on American Idol got kissed by Perry and felt a “uncomfortable!” Some people would be ecstatic but that wasn’t the case for Benjamin Glaze. People are bashing Perry for her behaviour during American Idol tapings. Glaze is downplaying the social media backlash on Perry and said on his Instagram that he did not think he was sexually harassed when Perry kissed him on the lips as he auditioned during the two night season opener. He told the NY Times “I was a tad bit uncomfortable. I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special.” The 19 year old needed some water after the kiss before singing levels by Nick Jonas. Katy said Glaze sounded “a bit rushed” The judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan did not send him to the next round. Glaze said he should have picked another song and calmed himself down regardless of the kiss. Glaze also said “I’m glad she did it because it’s a great opportunity to get my music out.” Check out the video below of Benjamin’s first kiss and in the second video Katy Perry falls in love and flirts with another contestant Trevor Holmes who admits to having a crush on her.
