Todrick Hall Addresses Allegations of Not Paying Performers & Treatment of Former Employee

Todrick Hall is on the cover of Attitude‘s February 2020 issue, out on Friday (January 3).

Here’s what the 34-year-old choreographer and performer had to say…

On his close friendship with Taylor Swift and choreographing her LGBTQ anthem “You Need to Calm Down”: “One of my favorite things that I’ve done is to be a friend to Taylor and be able to help her realize that using her voice is a humongous instrument that is able to change the minds of those who, without her, may have never looked at gay people as actual people. When I’m at a club or a concert and I hear people scream the line, ‘… shade never made anyone less gay,’ [from YNTCD], I can’t help but take a little bit of ownership of the fact that I helped her realize how powerful it would be for her to make a statement like that.”

On accusations regarding alleged non-payment of performers and the treatment of a former employee, that has reportedly now been resolved: “My fans have stood beside me, and they know my heart and my integrity, and they know what type of person I am. They know that I would never intentionally do some of these things, any of these things that are being said about me. [I will] be more careful about who I allow into my circle. My show is full of love and I focus on that every night… when some kid comes and tells me that because of my music and my message they didn’t take their own life, that they are now wearing heels at school, and they are winning prom queens. I’ll sleep with one eye open, but what I’m not going to stop doing is inspiring kids.”

On the advice RuPaul gave Todrick:Ru said, ‘Trust me, this will blow over, they aimed at you because you’re kind-hearted and socially conscious. They knew they’d get a reaction out of you and affect you. Most people suspect that they don’t really exist unless they’re affecting someone else. The only way they can feel themselves is through other people’s feelings, good, bad or otherwise. Hear this: when your actions [are] coming from a place of love, never worry about how it is perceived by others, know that your intention is love and nothing is wrong with that. XO, Mom’.”
