He’s not the only one! Over the years, tons of celebs have publicly locked lips with their close friends. Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth, for example, kissed after performing together at the 2015 American Music Awards, a moment fans will never forget.
“Meghan and I are good enough friends that we can laugh about it now,” Charlie told USA Today after the smooch “At first, we were like, ‘Holy, what did we just do?’ I have a girl kind of in my life right now that I’m not making too public and I don’t want people to get the wrong idea. But without Meghan’s initial push, I wouldn’t really be anywhere. Meghan really helped me by being featured on my first record.”
The “See You Again” crooner added, “I was very surprised to go on YouTube and find that the video had millions of hits. I didn’t know people would care about my lips on my friend’s lips so much. … We were like, ‘Should we kiss?’ Meghan is literally like my best friend, so it was a little weird at first, but it added something to the visual element of the performance, for sure, and that’s an important part of it since America was watching.”
