Jerry Seinfeld Turns Down Kesha's Hug
Singer Kesha came up to Jerry Seinfeld at the David Lynch Foundation's "A Night of Laughter and Song" and asked if they could hug. Reasonable, right? Well, the comedian turned her down. She didn't give up, this time asking for "just a little one?" and he responded, "no thanks."
The truth of the matter is, Seinfeld didn't know who Kesha was, and when the reporter interviewing him explained who she was to him, he said, "Okay, well, I wish her the best."

You know things are tough when you're out there using the red carpet for self-promotion. The singer-songwriter showed up at the MTV VMAs wearing this, and it's about as awkward as one can get.

Björk Wears a Swan Dress
One of the most iconic and cringe-worthy moments on the red carpet was when Björk showed up to the 2001 Academy Awards dressed in a swan dress. Apart from the dress itself, Björk was awkwardly embarrassed when people didn't seem to get the "artistic" element of her outfit.
She brought along six ostrich eggs with her, dropping them carefully on the red carpet. Other celebs' bodyguards kept picking them up and handing them back to her, thinking she dropped them by accident.
Gary Busey Kisses Jennifer Garner
When actor Gary Busey repeatedly interrupted Ryan Seacrest while interviewing Jennifer Garner and Laura Linney, everyone was a little peeved. But the encounter became truly uncomfortable when Seacrest tried introducing Garner and Busey. Busey responded by kissing the actress's neck.
Garner was obviously stunned and responded to the host's next question with a solid question of her own. "Aren't you going to ask me about getting kissed on the neck on the red carpet by this man? Um, that was nice."
