No means no, Kesha. At an event in Washington, DC, on Monday, the singer ran up to Jerry Seinfeld as he was giving an interview and very persistently asked for a hug, per E! News. "I'm Kesha! I love you so much. Can I give you a hug?" she asked. But Seinfeld, who possibly thought she was a crazed fan, was in no mood. He kindly denied her request twice before he did his best impression of Emperor Kuzco, putting up his hands and taking a step back as Kesha moved in. "Yeah, no thanks," he repeated. When she finally walked away, Seinfeld told the interviewer, "I don't know who that was" but "I wish her the best." (More Jerry Seinfeld stories.)
