Kesha just wants a hug, Jerry Seinfeld. In a move that would make for a great Seinfeld episode -- "What's the deal with hugs?" -- the comedian sidestepped an attempted squeeze from Kesha at last night's (June 5) National Night of Laughter and Song event.

“I’m Kesha I love you so much, can I give you a hug?” the singer inquired as Seinfeld was being interviewed on the red carpet by Tommy McFly of DC’s 94.7 Fresh FM.

Seinfeld first replied with, "No thanks," and then he continued to repeat the phrase twice more as Kesha moved in closer and he stepped back.

Once a dejected Kesha left the scene, Seinfeld started laughing and told McFly he didn't know who she was. McFly clued in the comedian, and Seinfeld said, "Well, I wish her the best."

'Twas a moment altogether as cringe worthy as an Elaine-infused dance session.
