American Idol Contestant Says Katy Perry Did Not Sexually Harass Him


"But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately".

When judge Luke asked hopeful Benjamin if he'd ever kissed a girl and liked it, the youngster replied: "I've never been in a relationship".

While he failed to make it to Hollywood in the audition, Glaze says the public attention he's received from the kiss has helped publicise his music and he's appreciative of the extra airtime.

The "Firework" hitmaker has openly flirted with numerous hopefuls vying for their chance at stardom, and some have said she's being disrespectful, especially in light of the sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood and the "Me too" movement. She and Richie urged him to practice more and "kiss a couple more girls" before auditioning again.

"I wanted my first kiss to be special".

"It was a forced sexual act, one viewer repliedto American Idols tweet: Imagine if this was from a male judge".

Benjamin was shocked, like everyone else, when the 33-year-old singer asked him to come over and kissed him on the lips, according to the New York Times. It was a memorable TV moment, however Benjamin isn't all that happy about it!

"They agreed with me that it didn't really count", he said.

In the end, Glaze isn't counting the on-screen smooch as his first kiss.

"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. The cashier from Oklahoma will tell stories of his first kiss with a celebrity for years to come. "It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about".
