Katy Perry hit the young man with the “give me a kiss on the cheek and ill turn to the lips at the last second” gag. It’s meant to be cute, it’s meant to be funny, but Glaze said this to the New York Times:
I was a tad bit uncomfortable. I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special. Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no. 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. I wanted my first kiss to be special.
This is when people jumped on Twitter to lambast Katy…

This was not okay. He was only comfortable with a kiss on the cheek. She ignored his boundaries. Guys deserve the same respect as girls. Public apology seems in order here.

What if he didn't want that kiss for religious reasons? What if Luke Bryan forced kissed a 19yr girl, would that be ok? Creepy for Perry to do that.

It seems like it was harmless fun, but in this day in age you can never be too careful. While her critics do have a point, many people find it’s going a little overboard. What do you think? Did she go too far? Check out the video for yourself below…
The incident occurred back in October. Since then, the young man has said he has no hard feelings and is actually happy it happened. Now it brings more eyes and ears to his music. No publicity is bad publicity, am I right?
