While Marzia’s eight-minute announcement video cited her connection to Felix as a major reason for her retirement, rumors abounded that this development was due to poor mental health or creator burnout – and some even speculated that she was pregnant.
However, PewDiePie has since debunked these rumors in his latest episode of Pew News, taking issue with any misrepresentation of her statements in the video.
“It had nothing to do with mental health,” he stated. “…It’s been an amazing seven years and she wants to take her own path. I’m proud of her for taking that step.”
He likewise felt that it might be difficult for other YouTubers to understand her retirement, considering the current value of internet stardom.
“I think for a lot of people, it’s just completely incomprehensible why you would quit YouTube,” he continued. “Ultimately, life is more than YouTube.”
PewDiePie claimed that many YouTubers might feel trapped in the platform as their only means of success, and suggested that Marzia is ‘taking the leap’ to work toward her next venture.
Marzia has updated her announcement video with a comment explaining why she’d deleted nearly all of the videos on her channel, stating that she ‘needs a clear head,’ and that she is currently undergoing an ‘adjustment period’ before starting the next chapter of her life.
Logan Paul is one of the most recognizable internet celebrities in the world, but his rise to stardom has been littered with controversy.
Whether creating content on Vine, Facebook or YouTube, Paul’s pranks have caused much consternation, but it hasn’t held him back from collecting tens of millions of subscribers across his social platforms.
Here’s everything you need to know about Logan Paul.
Although it’s difficult to pinpoint Paul’s exact net worth, estimations speculate it’s around $20 million and rising.
Logan Paul’s brother is fellow social media star Jake Paul.
How did Logan Paul become famous?
Paul burst onto the scene way back in 2013 on the video-sharing app, Vine.
He was a pioneer of the social media video sharing platform, which enabled users to share short video clips lasting a maximum of six seconds.
It didn’t take long for Paul to amass millions of followers and become one of Vine’s biggest stars.
Logan Paul’s rise to fame on Vine
During his time on Vine, Paul primarily created relatable comedy sketches and stunts that grabbed his audience’s attention.
A perfect example of this is one of his most popular Vine videos titled Epic car jump. The six-second clip showed Paul athletically dipping and diving around high-speed traffic while referencing the movie Dodgeball.
The Vine received over 6 million views in a single day and had fans wondering what camera trickery had been used to pull it off.
Paul’s popularity on Vine continued to rise as he collaborated with other huge names on the platform, including King Bach and Amanda Cerny.
It was only when Vine shut down in 2017 that Paul decided YouTube would become his main focus.
Logan Paul has over 15 million followers on Facebook.
Logan Paul’s switch from Vine to YouTube vlogger
With Vine in the past, Paul’s next move was to set up a vlogging channel on YouTube. He began creating daily vlogs involving crazy stunts and outlandish challenges. One of his biggest viral videos at the time saw him attach his friend Evan to a giant paper airplane.
The YouTube audience took notice and Paul’s channel began growing exponentially. Later that year, he became the fastest YouTuber to hit 10 million subscribers, achieving it in a mere 333 days. Over this period, he uploaded a video every single day, attempting to up the craziness with each upload.
Unfortunately, he took it too far, causing him to make a terrible mistake on the final day of 2017.
Logan Paul’s Suicide Forest controversy
Despite Paul’s overwhelming success on YouTube, his decision to upload a video in Japan’s ‘Suicide Forest’ landed him in the biggest controversy in the platform’s history.
The disturbing video involved Paul and a group of fellow YouTubers recording the dead body of a man who had committed suicide in Aokigahara Forest, one of the world’s most-used suicide sites. The video received extreme backlash from the online community and wider media outlets, including CNN, and the BBC.
Paul took on the British YouTuber in an 85kg amateur fight on August 25 of the same year. The entertaining bout went the full six rounds and was scored as a majority draw. The scorecards of every single judge gave both fighters 57 points, apart from Gareth Morris who scored KSI 58.
The event was a huge success and brought in over 1.3 million pay-per-view buys worldwide.
Broadcasters such as Sky Sports and DAZN began to show interest in the rematch and both fighters agreed a draw wasn’t a satisfying end to their feud.
Mayweather is considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time with a 50-0 record. Paul is yet to achieve his first victory in professional boxing and has never faced a professional fighter.
It’s fair to say the odds are stacked against Paul in this upcoming fight, with some labeling it as an impossible challenge. Whatever happens, this is a bout designed to draw as many eyes to the sport as possible.
