Logan Paul might be a professional boxer and podcast host, but he’s primarily known for his career as a top YouTuber — a title that he feels will land him a spot in the internet’s hall of fame for years to come.

Before his famous boxing feud with rival YouTuber KSI and the subsequent start of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast, Logan Paul was known for his outrageous, high-energy vlogs and Vines, which usually contained insane pranks questionably legal hijinks.

These antics grew his fanbase to huge levels — but his success hit a bump in the road after his scandal in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018, landing him far outside of the internet’s good graces.

After his rise to Vine fame and viral boxing feud with fellow YouTuber KSI, Logan Paul is confident that he’ll end up as one of the platform’s greatest creators of all time.

Fast forward to 2020 and Paul has since recovered from the drama, boasting 21 million subscribers and a legacy of nonstop action, which he feels has already earned him the title as one of the best YouTubers ever.

The Viner-turned-YouTuber opened up on the topic during an April 23 episode of his imPaulsive podcast, explaining that his experience in navigating to YouTube success from Vine and his storytelling skills stand as proof of his GOAT status.

“I do believe I am and will be regarded as one of the best YouTubers to grace the platform,” he admitted. “…I do think that, just because of the way I’ve been able to navigate this platform and the other platforms I came up on, and my storytelling I think is the spine of the operation that keeps me and the Maverick crew strong.”

Logan Paul has pulled off a number of crazy stunts in his time as a top YouTuber, including two huge boxing matches and his star-studded Challenger Games charity track & field event.

Despite his self-confidence, Paul also claimed he was worried about saying the sentiment aloud, knowing that he’ll be pressured to keep up his legacy to match his high aspirations from critics.

“I love humility,” he continued. “I love when people are humble. ….now I have to prove that, and now I have to continue to back that up. It puts a pressure on me that I like, because I know I can do it.”

While everyone has their favorite content creators, there’s no denying that Paul has certainly made a name for himself in internet history — but whether or not his legacy remains in the years that come remains to be seen.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
