Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa did a Q&A on Twitter recently in which he gave fans a peek into his private life, weighing in on whether pineapple should ever be on pizza (nope), the strangest thing a fan ever said to him (that they named their dog after him) and what peanut butter would be called if it wasn't called peanut butter (peanut cream).

But it was when he was asked who his favorite guilty pleasure singer was that things got interesting. You see, Tagovailoa, 22, said Shania Twain, but then he also said she was his celebrity crush. "Shania if you watch this, from this moment on, please message me back," he said.

Here's where things got interesting. It seems Shania, 54, caught wind of Tua's feelings and she tweeted back on Sunday, with her signature fistful of sass. "Guilty pleasure?" she wrote. "You should be proud of your good taste."

The tweet was accompanied by a laughing crying and a kissy face emoji. He clearly appreciated her sense of humor, because a short time later Tagovailoa responded with the title of a beloved Twain hit, "You're still the one."

Check out the Q&A and Shania's response below.
