Popular YouTuber, critic, and musician Drew Gooden is none too pleased with band Yellowcard’s lawsuit against the recently deceased rapper Juice WRLD, in spite of his passing.

American rock band Yellowcard has decided to proceed with a lawsuit against Juice WRLD, who passed away on December 8, 2019 of a sudden seizure at just 21 years old.

Yellowcard had originally filed a lawsuit against the rapper due to a similarity between their 2006 composition “Holly Wood Died” and Juice WRLD’s 2018 song, “Lucid Dreams,” claiming that the more recent track is “not only substantially similar to [Holly Wood Died], but in some places virtually identical.”

While Juice WRLD later passed away, the band decided to go through with their suit, despite feeling reportedly “torn” about the controversial decision.

YouTuber Drew Gooden, a longtime fan of Yellowcard, actively decried their continued lawsuit in a video uploaded on January 2, titled, “I’m Disappointed,” arguing that he couldn’t find any blatant similarities between the two songs.

“Their original music, their first two albums especially, I listened to all the time,” Gooden said of Yellowcard. “I know these songs very well. They’re deeply ingrained into my brain. And when I heard ‘Lucid Dreams,’ I didn’t hear the song they’re suing him for allegedly ‘ripping off.’”

The YouTuber went on to argue that there “doesn’t seem to be any loss involved” on Yellowcard’s part, and that ultimately, musicians are largely inspired by other artists – and even claimed that Yellowcard’s lawsuit was born out of desperation for money and relevancy.

“…they’re so desperate for money that they’re willing to alter their legacy forever to make villains out of themselves, just for a small payday,” he continued. “…I saw ‘#f**kYellowcard’ all over Twitter for a few days, and it’s totally worth it to them, because they’re that desperate for money.”

After kicking out their drummer in 2013 and signing to a record label famous for “Kidz Bop,” Gooden feels that the now-defunct band saw an opportunity for quick cash and took it — and while this motivation hasn’t been confirmed, its safe to say that Yellowcard’s lawsuit is earning them backlash across Juice WRLD’s fanbase.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
