He Kissed A Girl (Katy Perry). He Didn't Like It

He Kissed A Girl (Katy Perry). He Didn't Like It

Some thought the moment was amusing, and the judges laughed it off before Glaze performed his audition song. When he was coyly discussing his job as a cashier and how he uses it to meet "cute girls", one of the other judges playfully asked "have you ever kissed a girl and liked it?"

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. The pop star then summoned him over and instructed him to kiss her on the cheek.

Benjamin went on to tell the Times that he's at least grateful that the unscripted kiss got him a little more screen time. Many guys would be excited for the 33-year-old to kiss them, but he was raised to believe you should only kiss someone you're in a relationship with, Glaze said. The judges egged Glaze on to go over and kiss Perry. "That's what a real first kiss is".

"An #oklahoma native is now upset over the fact that#Katy Perry gave him his first kiss while auditioning for "#American Idol".

Benjamin replied: "I've never been in a relationship".

The race was prompted by former leader Patrick Brown's resignation on January 25 after two women accused him of sexual misconduct. Elliott initially disputed Saturday's results, alleging they stemmed from "serious irregularities" in the vote.

Hopeful singer Benjamin Glaze walked away empty handed after auditioning in front of judges Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan on the revamped reality show, but Perry made a decision to send him off with a kiss on the lips.

In this touching segment, watch as Johnson was able to impress Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. "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".

Perry's forwardness, while in line with the playful behaviour of television personalities, triggered a flurry of commentary on social media - with some accusing her of sexual harassment amid the newfound focus on consent in the #MeToo movement.

"So in that way, I'm glad she did it because it's a great opportunity to get my music out", he told the outlet. But others called the moment inappropriate. He won't be seeing Katy Perry again, but it will be interesting to see if she has anything to say now that she knows that he was uncomfortable with the kiss.
