YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s race against Bollywood label T-Series continues to heighten, despite his brief loss – but the Swede isn’t giving up hope just yet.

PewDiePie made an announcement during an episode of ‘LWIAY’ on March 8, where he revealed that he hopes to reach a major subscriber milestone before his fight with T-Series comes to an end.

While both channels reached a whopping 88 million subscribers in late February, PewDiePie hopes to reach 100 million subs ahead of T-Series’ projected victory.

“Keep subscribing, god dammit!” PewDiePie jokingly urged his viewers. “…we gotta make it to 100 [million]. We’re gonna make it to 100 mill, and we’re gonna dab on them, and that’s how we’ll know that we’re winning.”

Although T-Series was projected to surpass Pewds in early 2019, the Swede continues to outpace his Bollywood nemesis, thanks to the efforts of his dedicated fanbase and other popular YouTubers.

The label even overtook PewDiePie for a grueling ten minutes on February 22, thanks to an automated audit by YouTube that purged over 20,000 inactive subscribers.

Despite this brief defeat, PewDiePie managed to bounce back in a big way, prompting T-Series’ CEO to speak out on their fight with a message urging Indian subscribers to end the race for good.

PewDiePie hit back at the PSA in kind, calling T-Series “desperate” – and now, he has an even bigger goal in mind (which could very well come to pass, if previous trends continue to hold true for the YouTuber).

After bizarre rumors emerged that he’d had an affair with musician Kanye West, Jeffree Star has posted a series of references to the drama that have added even more confusion to the strange situation.

TikToker Ava Louise caused a stir on the viral video sharing app after she uploaded a TikTok explaining that she had heard from ‘very good sources’ that Kanye West had been having an affair with beauty guru YouTuber Jeffree Star.

As bizarre as the rumors were, they quickly gained traction on the app, with multiple other users giving their theories on why they believe the rumor could be real amid recently announced plans for their divorce.

Jeffree Star is no stranger to controversy.

While no party has made an official response to the claims amid the social media whirlwind, Jeffree Star has not shied away from making reference to the crazy drama, and in a series of cryptic tweets has fans even more confused over whether the rumors are real.

The beauty guru appeared to reference Kanye’s church work with an image of himself, alongside a caption that read “I’m ready for Sunday Service.”

And as a potential nod to Kanye’s Wyoming ranch, Jeffree tweeted “I love these beautiful Wyoming nights.”

While he avoided mentioning the rumors directly, it was clear that the YouTube star was enjoying teasing the many curious people looking on, and some of his liked tweets reveal that he seems to be taking a rather humorous approach to the craziness. He liked a viral meme about him fleeing Kanye’s house, along with YouTuber Tana Mongeau’s reaction to the drama.

While the rumors sound outlandish, these cryptic tweets from Jeffree have got fans even more confused than ever about the truth of the claims, though an official response has yet to come from either party involved.
