However, Glaze said hes had time to reflect on the moment since his audition, which was filmed in October, and told the NYT that he does not feel he was sexually harassed. The pop star then summoned him over and instructed him to kiss her on the cheek. This was his first kiss.
"I was a tad bit uncomfortable", he said. Glaze then admitted he'd never kissed a girl, as "I have never been in a relationship and I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship". Perry told him to come over to the judges' table, where a hesitant Glaze said, "One on the cheek?" before kissing Perry on the cheek. The "unwanted kiss" has been receiving some backlash on social media for its predatory nature, while others considered the teenager lucky for kissing the "I Kissed a Girl" singer. Now he's saying it upset his first kiss plans. "I'm glad she did it because it's a great opportunity to get my music out", he said after receiving unanimous no's from the three judges. "Am I the only one who was seriously uncomfortable about the Katy Perry kiss on #AmericanIdol?" wrote one Twitter user.
For those who missed it, Glaze entered the audition room where he mentioned that his job as a cashier allowed him to meet "cute girls". He did admit that he loved the publicity he got from the show.
And, he said, hes still saving his real first kiss for his first relationship.
Glaze ended up being cut from the show, and Perry joked that her kiss was what impeded his performance.
A guy not liking a kiss from Katy Perry?
After admitting he was indeed off the market, much to Perry's dismay, Holmes took out his guitar and strummed along to his rendition of Brett Young's triple-platinum No.1 song, "In Case You Didn't Know". "Come here right now".
"I think you were a bit rushed and I think that's because I sped up your BPM of the heartbeat", Perry told him. You can see everything that Glaze had to say in his Instagram post below.
