Katy Perry kisses American Idol contestant without consent

Katy Perry kisses American Idol contestant without consent

Katy Perry might’ve kissed a girl and liked it, but they boy she just kissed sure didn’t.
Jokes aside, Katy Perry, the renowned American singer, has now been accused of kissing a 19-year-old man without consent. The incident took place during an episode of American Idol, on which Katy Perry is a judge.
Nineteen-year-old Benjamin Glaze, during the episode, was asked, “Have you kissed a girl and liked it?” by fellow judge Luke Ryan, as a reference to Katy Perry’s song, I Kissed A Girl.
To the question, Glaze, a cashier from Oklahoma, responded, “I have never been in a relationship and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.”
On hearing this, Katy Perry leapt from her seat, and said, “Come here right now.”
When Glaze did reach her desk, Perry first faced her cheek towards him, and he kissed it. Then, she requested him for a second kiss on the cheek. As he approached her cheek for the kiss, she swung her face towards and kissed him quickly on the lips instead.
Glaze, clearly shocked from the kiss, said, “You didn’t!” while Perry put her arms in the air in celebration.
Glaze, however, was not pleased by Perry’s act. In an interview with The New York Times, he said it was the first kiss he ever had. “I wanted to save it for my first relationship,” he explained. “I wanted it to be special.”
He continued, “Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no.”
Glaze maintained that he did not feel sexually harassed by Perry, but added, “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.”
