YouTube star Logan Paul sat down Fox Business on July 22 to go in-depth about his rise in entertainment and jokingly revealed why it could be “the beginning of the end” for his media empire.

Even though Paul has been at the center of revolving controversies stemming all the way back from his 2017 Suicide Forest debacle, the YouTuber has had an impressive comeback which has seen a massive growth to his projects.

With an ever increasing demand for his Maverick clothing brand to his successful Impaulsive Podcast, the YouTuber has been expanding his reach outside of the video streaming platform.

Talking about which of the two rival platforms in Facebook or YouTube would be better to launch and facilitate a creator’s channel, Paul offered up a peek into what could be a troubling trend as it concerns his entertainment business.

Though he’s been expanding and adding more creators to his brand, it seems like his spending on growth might have gone a bit too overboard.

“I will say my expenses just surpassed my income for the first time ever,” Paul told FOX Business host Liz Claman. “I just sat down with my financial manager, he told me that. I’m definitely going downhill from here.”

According to the same Fox Business segment, Paul rakes in around $15 million per year, but he still maintains that he’s “terrified” of his financial news.

The YouTuber definitely looked like he was joking, and the media mogul might be well aware of the adage “it takes money to make money,” so fans of the YouTuber shouldn’t worry about him going away anytime soon.

Paul weighs in on Facebook vs YouTube

Speaking on the battle for content between the two tech giants, Paul obviously sided with his platform of choice YouTube. But the creator gave some context as to what exactly seperates the two platforms.

“YouTube does a better job of monetizing for the creator,” Paul said. “(YouTube) is the home, for me as a creator, where not only can my content be seen, consumed, digested but also they pay.”

Paul will undoubtedly stay on top of any emerging tech that brings in viewers, though he might want to keep a steadier check on his spending to safely evolve his businesses.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.
