Now that Kesha’s out to make her big musical comeback, she has some deets to spill about that awkward red carpet experience with Jerry Seinfeld.
Her instant reaction was “Oh, f—- me,” and the self-proclaimed Seinfeld fan felt like she was in her own mini-episode of the show.
Regardless of how embarrassing it might have been, she knew that every cloud has its silver lining.
“I had a moment where I was thinking to myself ‘Wow, maybe I should stop trying to hug everyone and attack them,’” she said in the interview. “And then I was like, ‘F—— that, no. I like hugging. Hugging is magical. Hugging is beautiful.”
The whole mess of a situation was put aside when Kesha explained that she got to have the hug of her dreams not too long after.
“My idol in life, Bob Dylan, agreed to meet up with me because we were playing the same festival,” Kesha explained. Naturally, she was a bit afraid to hug the music legend, but things went off without a hitch.
“He just opened his beautiful arms and gave the most wonderful, healing Bob Dylan hug that I have ever dreamt of,” she continued. And she got not one, but two hugs from the man himself.
Before this, Kesha briefly hinted at the hug attempt in an Instagram post with her cats #hugging it out.
Seinfeld had his own response to the situation in an interview with Extra shortly after the incident happened in June. “In my reality, I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say ‘hello,'” Seinfeld said.
He just doesn’t realize the power of hugs. As Kesha said, hugs are magical and beautiful. So get with the program.
