During his April 30 upload, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg explained why those believing his old horror Let’s Plays were “faked” are wrong.

PewDiePie may be known today as the largest individual YouTuber in the world in with over 104 million subscribers, but in 2010 it was his Let’s Plays of the horror title Amnesia: The Dark Descent that first began his journey to the top.

During his latest upload, the Swedish entertainer responded to those accusing him of faking his jumpscare reactions in the classic videos by hilariously demonstrating why he’s easily startled.

In his latest video, the YouTuber watched content on the Twitter account ‘The strangest videos online’ where he reacted to a host of bizarre clips. After being startled by one of the posts, the Swede was reminded of his horror Lets Plays.

“I’m so easily startled!” he laughed, before explaining “It’s so funny, because when I used to do horror games, everyone would accuse me “he’s faking it! he’s faking it!” … I get scared easily!”

The popular entertainer then joked, “It’s a natural reaction because I’ve so much testosterone that anything that comes at me, I meet with an “Ahh!” It’s a tactic. A defense tactic!”

(Timestamp 03:43 for mobile users.)

After watching another scary clip later in the video, he exclaimed, “Look, I get goosebumps!” as he raised his arm up to the camera. “I don’t know what it is. My imagination is scarier then the video!”

The Swedish star’s response to year-old accusations was hilarious, as he genuinely became startled while watching the bizarre clips online. Despite his years of experience, the jump scare still got the best of him.

While the YouTuber has largely focused on reaction style content in recent years, he made his glorious return to gaming in 2019 with his epic Minecraft series which exploded on the platform.

PewDiePie was genuinely scared in his classic horror videos.

In 2018, PewDiePie actually re-visited Amnesia, making it almost eight years since he first played the career-defining title for his audience. With how popular they are, who knows – maybe fans will get some more horror videos in the future.

The Swede continues to crush it on the Google-owned platform, pulling in millions of views an upload. It seems his much-deserved break at the beginning of 2020 has not slowed him down.

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.
