Irish YouTube star Seán ‘JackSepticEye’ McLoughlin wields a massive online presence, boasting over 24 million followers due to his humorous content and regular daily uploads — but this predictable schedule is taking a sharp turn for the near future.

While fans have become accustomed to expecting new videos every day from the popular YouTuber, McLoughlin has announced that he will be temporarily stepping back from this hectic agenda for the next month.

In a video uploaded on July 1, simply titled, “2020,” McLoughlin explained that recent world events have led to an unprecedented amount of mental stress for him, which has also affected his passion for making videos.

JackSepticEye is more than a YouTuber – he’s also involved in a number of other projects, such as he and fellow YouTuber Markiplier’s ‘Cloak’ clothing brand.

“My brain is just kind of exhausted from uploading all the time,” he explained, “and seeing all the stuff that’s going on and interacting with the internet the way I have been. So, I just need to step back from it a little.”

While making sure to state that initiatives like Black Lives Matter and the Me Too movement are “incredibly important,” he explained that he hasn’t “been able to catch his breath” amid all the goings on, and had lost his drive for producing daily videos.

“The more I’ve kind of been thinking about things, the more I’ve realized that me uploading daily content right now is something that I just don’t have a passion for,” he continued. “I don’t want to upload daily content just for the sake of uploading daily content.”

Rather than creating daily YouTube videos, JackSepticEye explained that he’s turning his focus to other projects, such as his newly-launched coffee brand.

Although McLoughlin has taken breaks in the past for similar reasons, the YouTuber announced that he would be taking his longest hiatus thus far for an entire month, assuring fans that he would make his return in August.

“That’s all it is,” he added. “There’s no secret reason. I just don’t want to make YouTube videos right now. It’s not something that I’m incredibly passionate about right now in this moment of my life.”

Instead, McLoughlin claimed he will focus on other aspects of his career, such as his newly-launched coffee company and creative writing projects in the interim.

Thus far, fans have been overwhelmingly supportive of his decision to step back from YouTube as one of the platform’s biggest personalities takes an unprecedented lapse from his usual workload.


Charli D’Amelio and Bebe Rexha’s ASMR is the best thing you’ll hear today

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has hopped on the ASMR trend, and she brought singer Bebe Rexha along with her for a hilarious relaxation session — complete with a few insights into both stars’ lives.

Charli D’Amelio may be known for her catchy choreography, but it looks like the TikTok celebrity is more than just a dancer. Now, she’s delving into the world of ASMR, and brought Bebe Rexha along for the ride.

Their ASMR collaboration, uploaded to YouTube on October 23, came just two weeks after Charli’s appearance in Rexha’s ‘Baby I’m Jealous’ music video with Doja Cat, as well as a few other key influencers like Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg.

It looks like the group has gotten close in the days that followed, with Bebe and Charli settling down for snacks in front of a high-sensitivity ASMR mic to talk about their careers and favorite foods.

Charli D’Amelio, Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg appeared in a music video with Doja Cat and Bebe Rexha earlier this month.

Although plenty of hilariousness ensued, the two dropped quite a few facts for their fans, with Bebe Rexha admitting that she gets anxiety when flying on airplanes.

That’s not all; Charli was also asked about the “funnest moment” in her career, which she whittled down to having dinner with her friends or just hanging out with other TikTokers, rather than attending big events as an A-list celeb.

“I realize like, this is crazy!” she said. “It’s those little moments where it just like, clicks for a second, and I’m like, ‘Woah, that’s kind of insane.’ Those are the best.”

Although Charli’s ASMR series is still in its early stages, Bebe Rexha suggested they go full-on Mukbang for future episodes — a style of video where influencers sit down with a huge spread of food and chow down in front of the camera.

It seems that this style of video is rather popular in some online circles, although it still remains to be seen if Charli’s fanbase is up for that kind of content. Nevertheless, her pilot ASMR experience was certainly a fun ride, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the star in her new journey into the world of relaxation.
