Charlie Puth on AMA Kiss with Meghan Trainor

In today's WHO? news, Charlie Puth has put to rest rumors that he's romantically involved with the BASS Queen™ herself - Meghan Trainor - after their scandalous kiss at the American Music Awards. The two locked lips after a performance of "Marvin Gaye" that sent Twitter into a frenzy. Puth goes on to say:

"Meghan and I are good enough friends that we can laugh about it now. At first, we were like, 'Holy shit, 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 (Marvin)."

On the following day and preparing for the performance:
"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. When we were doing it live, we were like, 'OK, this is one of the more major live performances. How are we visually going to show this and make it as impactful as the video?' 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."
