Todrick Hall may be a singer, actor, director, choreographer, and YouTube sensation, but he has another hidden attribute: being a unicorn.

During VidCon 2016, EW asked Hall some rapid fire, burning questions, including his first crushes, his first online video, and his favorite emoji. “My first celebrity crush when I thought I was straight was Jessica Alba,” the American Idol alum said. “But when I realized and came to, I think it was probably Jonathan Taylor Thomas.”

Showing some love to the Home Improvement star wasn’t the only truth the YouTube star dropped. “The emoji that best describes me is the unicorn. I was so happy when they created it because I think it was very necessary,” he quipped. “The unicorn is one of God’s greatest creations and I’m also one of God’s greatest creations so I would have to go with the unicorn.”

On a spookier note, when asked about his strangest fan interaction, Hall revealed an incident when a group of fans hopped his fence and were waiting for him on his patio. “I thought it was crazy, but I thought it was a very ballsy move,” added the performer.

Hall is currently performing in his show Straight Outta Oz, a live version of his recent visual album, which is touring the country.
