He’ll share coffee with comedians, but Jerry Seinfeld isn’t as receptive of hugs from pop stars - and Kesha found out the hard way.

The singer-songwriter approached the 63-year-old comedy legend Monday night on the red carpet for a National Night of Laughter and Song event at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., enthusiastically introducing herself and professing admiration for Seinfeld’s work.

"I’m Kesha, I love you so much!" she says in a video captured by 94.7 Fresh FM radio host Tommy McFly. "Can I give you a hug?"

Seinfeld’s response. "No thanks." Twice.

"Please? A little one?" Kesha asked again, though the Seinfeld star ultimately shut her down after taking a step backward. "Yeah, no thanks."

"I don’t know who that was," Seinfeld admitted to McFly, who informed the comic of the mystery hugger’s true identity. "Okay, well, I wish her the best."
