Jerry Seinfeld Explains Why He Didn’t Hug Kesha: “I Don’t Hug A Total Stranger”

A couple days ago Jerry Seinfeld had the internet buzzing when he denied a hug from pop-singer Kesha. The awkward moment was caught on camera and the rest was history. Now Uncle Jerry is ready to talk about why he just decided to not give a hug to the singer. In a new interview with AJ Calloway of EXTRA; Jerry went on to say that a hug off first meeting is not proper etiquette. You have to get to know him first.

During a recent interview with AJ Calloway (yes, THAT AJ Calloway) on Extra, Seinfeld kept it a buck. “I’m 63, I don’t know every pop star… I don’t know everyone.” Which, same. Seinfeld goes on to explain that he “was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off. When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality, in my reality… I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say hello. I gotta start somewhere… hug isn’t first moment of a human, two humans. I never did that.”
