YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg recently reminisced about the first video he recorded, and the cringiness of his other older content when he first started out on the platform.

With the recent craze of Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem’s Minecraft Monday sweeping YouTube, the platform’s biggest star PewDiePie has been making his own videos on the game whilst also reflecting about his history.

While this isn’t the first time the Swedish YouTuber has opened up about his past, his latest exchange with his fans revealed details that had not been heard before.

PewDiePie’s beginnings…

“A lot of people seem to think my first video was a Minecraft video. Basically my first video technically that is on my channel is a Minecraft video, but it wasn’t my first video that I uploaded,” PewDiePie said. 

The YouTube star had uploaded other videos before his Minecraft video, but decided to remove them due to being too “cringey.”

Showing humility, the YouTube star told his audience that he doesn’t really care about people seeing his older videos anymore – despite them being cringeworthy – and even suggested that he could upload them back to his channel someday. 

He also commented that other YouTubers worry about their entire catalog being perfect, but that there is nothing wrong with messing up by making terrible videos when first starting out.

He could have worked for Mojang

PewDiePie also revealed that he actually lost the first Minecraft video he ever recorded. Amusingly, he told fans that he uploaded it to a website hoping that they would post it, but they never did so sadly, there’s next-to-no hopes of it cropping up online any time soon.

Reflecting further on his beginnings, the YouTuber also described the awkwardness he found when recording himself playing games. “Who am I talking to? I have no audience. Am I supposed to talk to people like there is [someone there]?”

However, his biggest reveal of all was when he admitted that he actually applied to work for Mojang when he was younger after he fell in love with Minecraft. “Mojang, if you leak my email I will kill you”, he laughed.

PewDiePie working on Minecraft could have led to some interesting results, but at least we have his videos to entertain us instead.

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.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘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.
