Jerry Seinfeld crushed Kesha's dreams earlier this week when he refused to hug the pop star. Seinfeld's bitter rejection -- which was the purest act of unfettered Seinfeld material since the eponymous sitcom ended -- gave the internet a good reason to laugh.
The comedian got to explain why he didn't want to hug Kesha -- and yes, it's true he's not a natural hugger. In an interview with Extra, Seinfeld said that he's not that pop culture savvy, and just didn't know that the woman asking for an embrace was a celebrity. "I'm 63, I don't know every pop star, I don't know everyone," the funnyman said. "When you get to be my age and you do a couple things, you have your own reality. And in my reality, I don't hug a total stranger...I have to meet someone, say 'hello,' I've gotta start somewhere. A hug is not the first moment [between] two humans."
