YouTuber ‘JaackMaate’s’ Happy Hour Podcast sat down with musician, rapper, and producer ‘Example,’ who let slip a few details about who he feels is the biggest “diva” in the music industry.

The Happy Hour podcast is a popular presence on YouTube, often featuring high-profile guests like social media stars True Geordie, KSI, and even the occasional celebrity like Ricky Gervais for a deep dive in their personal lives and opinions on hot topics.

Their most recent episode saw the appearance of UK music artist Example, best known for such songs as “Won’t Go Quietly” and “Kickstarts.”

UK rapper, producer, and musician ‘Example’ made a special appearance on the Happy Hour Podcast, where he dished on his personal experiences with drama in the music biz.

During his time on the podcast, the group’s conversation steered toward drama in the music industry, prompting Example to dish on who he personally feels is the biz’s biggest diva.

“What’s the most ‘diva’ thing you’ve seen someone do?” host Jack asked, after the group deliberated on the declining “fakeness” of such scenes as pop and rap. “You must have seen some divas in your time.”

While Example didn’t name any names, he did admit that a popular Dutch DJ was at fault for such self-centered behavior, as seen during a music festival in Australia.

Although he didn’t name any names, Example claimed that one of the biggest divas he’s had the pleasure of interacting with was a popular Dutch DJ.

“We were flying from one festival to another, and a world-famous DJ didn’t want to get on the helicopter because he’d requested a black or a white one,” he explained. “It was a green one.”

That’s not all; Example even claimed that the DJ requested his set times be changed, as he would rather take the two-hour drive in a vehicle rather than travel in an unfashionable aircraft.

“He was like, ‘No sir, I said it has to be a black or a white helicopter,’” he continued. “‘I’m not getting on that one. It’s green.’ And they were like, ‘Well, it’s a two-hour drive to the other one.’ And he said, ‘Well, they’ll have to change my set times then, because I’m not getting on it.”

As for his reasons for the odd request, Example suggested the DJ might have been on a “power trip” — and while fans might never know who it actually was, due to the Netherlands’ wealth of EDM artists, they’ll now be haunted by the possibility that their favorite producer could be a total snob.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
