Kesha addressed a certain viral video from 2017. In the clip, Kesha is seen on the red carpet of a charity event for the David Lynch Foundation, where actor and comedian Jerry Seinfeld is also in attendance. Kesha approaches Seinfeld, hoping he’ll give her a hug, but Seinfeld, who was being interviewed, rejects the hug.
In a recent episode of The Best Show Starring Tom Scharpling, she shared a breakdown of the “really sad” moment. She recalled at home how David Lynch had invited her to participate in a charity event.
“I was in the middle of a tour, I was exhausted,” she said, “but I really like David Lynch and I heard Jerry Seinfeld was going to be there. […] I used to take my computer, when there was the CD, and I carried it around the world, the little DVDs. […] When it got bumpy on planes, I would barge in Seinfeld and I was like ‘everything is fine in the world’ and I was watching my homie.
She went on to note that she was looking forward to seeing someone who had brought her so much joy over the years. However, the meeting did not go as she had imagined.
“Then I get to the f*cking charity event and I’m really excited because he brings me peace and love and all the good things in the universe, and then he doesn’t get me kissed in front of the cameras,” she said. “And that was the most depressing and hilarious, but also so sad. […] It was like the saddest moment of my life.
In an interview with Additional Caught around the time of the event, Seinfeld explained that he wasn’t one to “kiss a complete stranger,” though the two later laughed it off.
