During his audition for ABC’s reboot of American Idol, 19 year-old Benjamin Glaze happened to mention he liked his job as a cashier because it provided him the opportunity to meet cute girls. When Luke Bryan asked if he’d kissed a girl and liked it – a play on Katy Perry’s hit single – Glazer confessed, “I have never been in a relationship and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.” Kind of sweet and refreshing in this day and age, right? Enter Katy Perry. WATCH.
Let’s start with the obvious. If Benjamin Glaze was female and Katy Perry was male, pussy-hat clad feminists from every corner of the globe would be tweeting #MeToo while shrieking and marching in protest. As it stands…crickets. That’s right, not a peep from the SJWs because there’s a double standard when to comes to (let’s call what it is, shall we?) sexual harassment.
Abuse of power aside, the thing that sickens me the most about this whole thing is Katy Perry’s sense of entitlement. Benjamin Glazer’s expressed desire was for his first kiss to be special and meaningful. Does Katy Perry have such an inflated sense of herself that she actually thought a first kiss from her would qualify as special and meaningful? Does she believe her status as a pop star entitles her to exploit someone else’s cherished and deeply personal desire?
Benjamin Glazer told The New York Times, “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.”
Katy Perry used her position of power to take something precious from Benjamin Glazer, something to which she was not entitled. Can we all please agree if this type of behavior is wrong for the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Larry Nassar and Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey, it’s wrong for Katy Perry too?
