Popular content creator Seán ‘JackSepticEye’ McLoughlin has revealed the effects that massive scrutiny has had on Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, while he takes a break from YouTube.

Since PewDiePie announced that he would be taking a break from uploading videos after many years at the top, many fans expressed their concerns for the star.

The popular YouTuber later revealed that he felt it would be good to switch up from his usual routine, with a short break from creating regular videos for his channel following the 2019 holiday season.

JackSepticEye shared some insight on PewDiePie’s YouTube break.

PewDiePie’s friend and fellow YouTube star JackSepticEye opened up, in a recent interview with Metro, about Kjellberg’s absence from the platform and some of the effects that his lifestyle had on him.

The Irish YouTuber explained that, outside of creating content, PewDiePie was much more humble than many of his viewers would believe, despite his massive success on the platform.

“He’s a lot more down to earth than people seem to think he is and he doesn’t give off the vibe that he’s the number one channel on YouTube at all, he always has a lot of time for people to just hang out,” JackSepticEye shared.

Fans are eager for PewDiePie’s return to YouTube.

When asked about the enormous scrutiny his fellow YouTuber faces, he explained that it was strange for him to watch it unfold. “It is strange, all the stuff that gets said about him, it’s kind of weird to see that being said about a friend of yours.”

“People like to take things every which way and twist things all over the place”, McLoughlin expressed, addressing some of the star’s controversies. “Some things have affected him a lot but I think he has a strong head on his shoulders and he kind of deals with it as it comes up.”

Although PewDiePie seems to handle himself well when faced with difficult situations, JackSepticEye revealed that it is not easy as he lets it seem. “I don’t know how he does it, with that many people on you and that much scrutiny on you constantly. I think I would have lost my mind by now.”

Little has been shared on when the popular Swede plans on making his return to uploading YouTube videos, however, PewDiePie is still managing to hit new milestones on his channel despite his absence.

TikTok in shock as Quenlin Blackwell reveals she’s living with Diplo

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has bemused fans after revealing that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ Diplo.

Quenlin Blackwell first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers, and has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and “Revolution,” and has released music with artists including Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. He is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

The DJ’s global fame is partly a reason why TikTok was so bemused when 19-year-old Quenlin revealed to her followers that she lives with him. In one video, responding to fans who asked her about noise complaints, she very casually said “I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors.”

TikTokers immediately asked questions about how the pair ended up living together and expressed their surprise. Quen responded to a comment that said “What! Tell us how this happened. We need the story,” and filmed herself asking Diplo why she lives with him, to which he responded, “Because I have no other friends.”

This offered fans little in the way of explanation and even rapper Lil Yachty responded with cry-laughing emojis.

One user wrote: “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad.” Another wrote: “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this,” while someone else added “Who is writing the 2020 script?? I just wanna know.”

Since the bizarre reveal, Quenlin has begun a TikTok series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians. So far Quenlin has filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

Meanwhile, Diplo has featured Quenlin on his own TikTok including a video of him checking to see if she has swollen glands in her neck and a sneaky video of a photoshoot with the caption “The time when @quenblackwell called the paparazzi on herself in my backyard smh.”

No one was ready for such a bizarre collaboration, but TikTok is here for it and excited to see the next few installments of Quenlin’s “Living with Diplo” series.
