YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg reached 91 million subscribers in the midst of his battle with Bollywood label T-Series – but his next subscriber goal may never come to fruition.

While Kjellberg announced a race to 100 million subs against T-Series in early March, the YouTuber has since backpedaled on this goal, appearing to admit defeat in an episode of LWIAY on March 30.

“Let’s get real here,” PewDiePie said of his loss. “T-Series have already passed. Let’s just acknowledge the situation. It’s over, okay? …we ain’t never gonna get to 100.”

While PewDiePie put up a major fight for nearly half a year, T-Series managed to surpass the YouTuber by a wide margin on March 26 – and has stayed on top for nearly four days, as of March 30.

T-Series currently sits at over 107,000 subs above PewDiePie; while the YouTuber has been known to bounce back from major defeats before, it doesn’t look like the YouTuber has another comeback plan in mind, as further hinted at by his statements in March 30’s LWIAY episode.

PewDiePie is falling behind T-Series at a massive rate, with the Bollywood label taking the lead by over 100,000 subscribers as of March 30.

“It feels weird – this is the first LWIAY I’ve recorded where we’re not technically winning,” PewDiePie continued. “Sad. Just sad.”

PewDiePie’s fight against the label saw the involvement of major YouTubers and celebrities alike, with the likes of political commentator Ben Shapiro and Tesla CEO Elon Musk making appearances on Kjellberg’s ‘Meme Review’ show.

Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson likewise made massive contributions to their battle, creating a citywide ad campaign across his hometown and even taking the fight to the 2019 Super Bowl, where he and his squad wore a series of shirts that read, ‘Sub 2 PewDiePie’ on live television.

Even hackers jumped in on the action, infiltrating Chromecasts, Smart TVs, and even printers in an effort to boost PewDiePie’s subscriber count ahead of T-Series.

Despite the efforts of his dedicated fanbase, Kjellberg may have lost his crown for good, even reiterating that he “doesn’t care” about who comes out on top in the end.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
