Tituss Burgess – they don’t love you like we love you.

The actor opened up about his character’s “ode to Beyoncé” in season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to PeopleTV on the red carpet at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday.

Of one moment – where he wore a “Hold Up” dress replica, strutting the New York City streets while haplessly swinging a baseball bat – Burgess says, “That felt good, a little too good.”

“Kinda want my own, like, smashing window batting range in my backyard,” adds Burgess. “It felt great.”

Burgess also channeled the music diva’s black-and-white “Sorry” video during the same episode, telling his roommate Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper), “I’m Lemonade-ing.”

The actor further tells PeopleTV that it remains to be seen if his character will ever find love on the series, noting, “I think Titus by nature is a wanderer. I don’t think he knows how to settle down.”
