Joe Rogan has explained his reasons behind moving from Los Angeles to Texas and hinted at the move taking place sooner rather than later.

Ever since Joe Rogan started his Joe Rogan Experience podcast, it’s been hosted in California – either at his home in Los Angeles or in different studios and comedy clubs around the state.

However, not long after Rogan penned his game-changing move to Spotify, he revealed that he would be moving away from California and heading to Texas. 

While the reasons have been kept on the down-low since, with people left to speculate after Rogan noted that he could just fly guests into Texas for a show, he’s since revealed his own reasons for wanting the move.

Rogan has had a huge number of guests on his podcast.

During the 1514th episode of his podcast, Rogan had been chatting with Joe De Sena, who turned the tables and asked him about the upcoming move to Texas. 

“I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere its easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom,” Rogan explained. He added that he believes Los Angeles is overcrowded and while that usually isn’t a problem, it has become an issue in the time of a global crisis. 

The podcast host continued: “When you look at the traffic, the economic despair, the homelessness problem, I think there are too many people here, it’s not tenable.”

As for where the UFC commentator is headed, he wouldn’t reveal anywhere specific in Texas but he has previously spoken about Austin. Rogan did note, however, that his podcast producer, Jamie, is joining him on the move and that they’ll be heading there “soon.” 

It won’t affect his hugely successful podcast or comedy career, either, as Rogan added that he’s actually been able to perform stand up in Texas during the ongoing situation and that he’s got plenty of friends in the state.


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.
