The Virgin "Idol" Contestant Did Not Want Katy Perry to Be His First Kiss

KATY PERRY kissed a boy on "American Idol" earlier this week, and he kinda DIDN'T like it. His name is Benjamin Glaze, and he was the 19-year-old guy who said that he'd never been kissed. Katy had him come over to the judges' table, where she asked him to kiss her on the cheek. But as he went in, she turned her head and kissed him ON THE LIPS. And he literally fell backward in shock. You might think that Benjamin considers himself LUCKY because his first kiss was Katy Perry . . . but that's NOT the case. In an interview with the "New York Times", he said, quote, "I was a tad bit uncomfortable. I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special. If she said, 'Would you kiss me?' . . . I would've said 'no.'"  For what it's worth, Benjamin says he DOESN'T consider it sexual harassment, which, these days, is worth mentioning. He also did NOT make it through to the next round. Not even Katy voted for him. More details HERE

Scalpers Got to the Beyoncé / Jay-Z Tickets Before Fans Could

When the presale started for BEYONCÉ and JAY-Z's On the Run 2 Tour yesterday, the fans were ready. And they STILL got hosed. Twitter lit up with complaints. Some people said they lost out when Ticketmaster crashed. Others just missed out, no matter how quickly they got in . . . but then noticed tickets were showing up on resale sites . . . including Ticketmaster itself. One person Tweeted to them, quote, "Can you explain to me how there can be resale tickets available ON YOUR SITE within minutes of a presale?!?!?!?! You're allowing scammers to hike up ticket prices for true fans. Not cool!!" Another said, quote, "How can all the Beyoncé tickets be scooped up by 9:01? I thought we were trying to combat bots."

Cardi B making baby moves

Remember those Cardi B pregnancy rumors? we heard someone on her team told super bowl staff she was pregnant and didn’t want to be around any parties? And she denied it, saying “let me be fat in peace!” Looks like they were true after all. Cardi B's set to pop out her baby this summer but, unlike Beyonce, she's not letting pregnancy stop her from performing at Coachella. I heard that she’s due the first week of July and will be close to 7 months pregnant with Offset's kid when she takes the stage next month at Coachella. And she is in 100% work mode until she pops..she's spent the last 2 weeks buried in the studio to complete her debut album. She also fully intends to go on tour with Bruno Mars in September ... a whopping 2 months after giving birth to her first child. More details HERE

EXTRAS: 

--MTV Isn't Canceling "TRL" . . . They're Tripling Down on It: Yesterday, TMZ reported that MTV was once again pulling the plug on "TRL" . . . a.k.a. "Total Request Live". But apparently, that's not the case. In fact, MTV is in the process of EXPANDING it from one to three episodes a day. MTV says that in addition to the afternoon show, they're developing a morning version, which will sort of be like a, quote, "curated Spotify playlist" . . . as well as a nighttime "after-show" edition, which has already aired a few test episodes. "TRL"was revived back in October after being off the air for nearly nine years . . . it's currently on a pre-planned hiatus, but it'll be back in April. The morning show will debut in the summer, and that's also when the night show will really get going. More details HERE

--Netflix Won't Give Kids Patches for Watching TV After All: Netflix has decided NOT to give out virtual "patches" for kids based on how much TV they watch. It wouldn't be surprising if the negative public reaction killed it. But in their announcement yesterday, they really tried to downplay that. They said, quote, "We've concluded the test for patches and have decided not to move forward with the feature for kids. We test lots of things at Netflix in order to learn what works well, and what doesn't work well, for our members." Netflix had actually been testing the patches on a small subset of viewers for a few weeks before the idea became public. They didn't say how those tests went, or why they abandoned the idea.
