Todrick Hall is clapping back at the accusations related to him allegedly not paying certain dancers in his music videos and the recent backlash he’s received from Celebrity Big Brother 3 fans.
The last few years have been a roller-coaster ride for Hall. Between appearing as a guest judge and choreographer in recent seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race and releasing albums such as Straight Outta Oz, Forbidden, and Femuline, the singer has faced a lot of scrutiny over time.
Now, Hall has issued a lengthy statement via Instagram. The “Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels” singer wrote:
“Do you want to know what my least favorite part of ‘fame’ is? Having a bunch of hypocritical strangers on the internet trying to convince you to AGREE with them about who THEY think you are, and being mad that you won’t. I am a human being, I make mistakes and I learn from them. I will not, however, admit guilt for things I didn’t say and things that aren't true. That I will never do. I have sat around for YEARS and stayed silent while shady people ran amuck on the internet with my name in their mouth because they have no talent, no past, no future and most importantly nothing to lose. That ends today.”
Hall accused his critics of speaking out against him due to being jealous or feeling vengeful after things didn’t work out according to their own plans and expectations. “Unreliable and untrustworthy narrators have been able to paint a narrative of me that is false,” the popstar continued.
In the subsequent slides in this Instagram post, Hall addressed the sexual assault allegations that have been made about him. He wrote, “You can write a million false articles about me. You can tell me that my tour will fail. You can claim I ‘sexually assaulted’ you when you and I both know that never happened.”
Recently, the controversies surrounding Hall escalated to a new level after he appeared on the third season of Celebrity Big Brother – a show that includes 24/7 live feeds watched by thousands of fans. Over the course of Hall’s stay inside the Big Brother house, live-feed viewers re-posted scenes of him criticizing the clothes worn by Shanna Moakler based on her age and questioning whether Christ Kirkpatrick’s son would feel disappointed watching his dad on the show, among other things.
Hall now wants to address all of the accusations made out against him through an official platform.
“This conversation isn’t over. I’m going to share MY side of the story soon, but just to be clear, it isn’t to prove anything to people who were never on my team to begin with,” he concluded.
This isn't the first lengthy public statement Hall has put out in recent months, though. Last month, he also took to Instagram, opening up about how he hasd been keeping busy over the past few weeks getting ready for his tour tour and why he had been silent about CBB for so long.
"Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me in the [Celebrity Big Brother] house," Hall said at the time. "It was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done, but I’m glad I did it. I am a human being, a real one…I’m not always nice, not always kind nor have I ever claimed to be. I’m very flawed, I’m a work in progress, but that’s the beauty of being human. I have made a ton of mistakes in my life and I will continue to make mistakes, some publicly and some privately. I thank YOU, each and every one of you who has stood beside me through those mistakes. Those of you who loved and supported me even when it wasn’t easy. Your loyalty to me and my team has been incredible and tonight I’m going to be showering you with every bit of love I have because without you all, I wouldn’t be living out my truth on stage representing my community the way you’ve allowed me to."
