YouTuber Lily Singh released a parody video of Nicki Minaj’s song ‘Barbie Dreams,’ where she took some pretty savage shots at YouTube’s most popular male creators.

The song’s premise is centered around Lily wanting to shoot a video with a top male YouTuber, but she is ultimately unable to due to their perceived ‘flaws.’

“…Most of these boys, they can’t hit the spot/ Gotta pretend to finish, like Casey did with his Vlog,” she said in reference to Neistat’s previous vlogging hiatus.

Her video even features some of the YouTubers in question, including Anthony Padilla from Smosh, Alex Wassabi, Swoozie, and Kingsley.

Lily took aim at some other pretty big faces in the YouTube sphere, as well, such as PewDiePie, Philip DeFranco, and even Fortnite/Twitch legend Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.

“Need a loyal guy like Ninja who is fully equipped/ Won’t live stream with other chicks because he’s fully whipped,” she rapped, citing Ninja’s recent controversy over declining to stream with women.

Lily stated that the purpose of her video was to poke some good-natured fun at the men in question, and assured that her rap didn’t contain any legitimate beef.

“Can the internet still take a joke?,” she wrote in the video’s description. “I’d like to think yes! …I feel like these days everyone takes everything and everyone so seriously. This is my little way of saying chill. Life is too short to be so serious and offended by everything.”

The video currently has over 1,200,000 views as of October 10, and has largely been taken in good spirits by victims of Singh’s savage rhymes.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
