Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast‘ Donaldson has an idea for what would be a pretty insane vlog, and he’s asked billionaire Elon Musk for his help.

Anyone who is remotely familiar with MrBeast knows that he is one of the more eccentric YouTubers out there, and he’s currently just 10,000 subscribers short of hitting the 16.8 million mark. 

Over the past several years, he has really started to make a name for himself by donating large amounts of money or expensive gifts to unsuspecting recipients, most notably Twitch streamers.

On April 7, MrBeast tweeted out that he had the idea of vlogging on the moon, which would definitely be an unprecedented type of video in the history of YouTube.

In his tweet, MrBeast tagged Elon Musk, but also accepted that he may have to wait a pretty long time to turn his dream into a reality

“Just putting it out there Elon Musk, I’d love to vlog on the moon one day,” he tweeted. “I understand if I have to wait a year or two.”

Why Elon Musk?

Elon Musk is one of the most prominent public figures of our time, known for being a successful technology entrepreneur, investor, engineer, current CEO and lead designer at SpaceX, co-founder of Paypal, and so on.

His recent achievements with SpaceX have seen him launch numerous rockets into space, as part of his overall goal of making space travel much more affordable and easy than it is right now.

Joe Rogan PodcastTech genius and billionaire Elon Musk would be the perfect candidate for helping MrBeast with his new idea.

Musk has also involved himself with prominent YouTube channels n the past, such as when he hosted PewDiePie’s Meme Review show or appeared on Joe Rogan’s popular podcast in an episode that has now eclipsed 21.3 million views. 

Thus, seeing as how Musk is considered to be one of the smartest and richest people on the planet who has a taste for space travel and YouTube entertainment, it makes perfect sense for why MrBeast would try and enlist his help for this particular idea.

TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio has lost 500,000 followers within the space of two days, with people unfollowing on mass after comments about her follower count that many are calling “ungrateful.”

Charli started her TikTok account in 2019, and within the space of a year went from ordinary teenager to global social media star, securing brand deals and collaborations with some huge celebrities.

The 16-year-old is currently miles ahead of other TikTok accounts on the road to 100 million followers, and was set to reach the milestone very soon. However comments that she made about her follower count have caused a setback.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

In a November 16 video with James Charles and her family, Charli said about the impending follower milestone, “I wish I had more time! Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

James Charles rebutted “was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” with Charli replying “I was just saying like, even numbers,” while sticking out her tongue at the camera with a smile.

While the interaction appeared to have simply been a joke, the comments from the young star certainly ruffled some feathers among fans. People called Charli out for being “ungrateful,” and said that “she deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her.”

This caused an influx of people to unfollow the star, and where she was initially creeping up at a steady pace towards the big 100 million, she’s now found herself heading back in the opposite direction.

Prior to the backlash, Social Blade shows Charli’s highest follower count as being 99.4 million, but at the time of writing it has dropped to 98.96 according to, leaving her at a loss of just over 500,000 followers.

In celebration of her hitting 99 million on November 16, Charli tweeted that “I am so incredibly thankful for every single one of you! You all have changed my life with all of the support and love you give to me!”

While her comments seemed to be just a poorly timed joke, it certainly has frustrated some of her followers, and has proven to be a setback on her road to 100 million.
