YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg opened up to viewers during his August 2 upload, and explained why he will no longer be taking selfies when approached in public.

For many, PewDiePie has been the face of online entertainment for the last decade. The content creator went from his humble roots in Sweden in 2010 to being YouTube’s biggest star with a staggering 106 million subscribers to his channel.

On August 2, the entertainer explained to his audience why fans asking him for selfies has began to take a toll on him. The 30-year-old said taking photos had started to feel “dehumanizing” and “uncomfortable” for him.

PewDiePie on taking selfies with fans in public

The YouTuber took time out of his latest episode of Last Week I Asked You to address viewers about taking selfies with them out in public. “I’ve decided, no more selfies,” he announced. Pewds then said he was worried that people would take his decision out of context, and asked fans to watch until the end.

“I love meeting you guys. I love doing these meetups where it’s a set place to hang out and just talk. But I think my life has just become to a point where whenever I go outside, I have to just be ready whatever I’m doing to just stop, and take a photo,” he said.

He then clarified that he doesn’t mind talking with his fans in public, but rather he hates the photo aspect. “I don’t mind to just stop and chat with you guys, but the whole photo process to me… I don’t like it. You do like a thousand of them, and after a while you feel like an animal at a zoo that’s like a prop for someone. And I don’t like it. I’m tired of it. I don’t want to do it anymore.”

The creator stated that he didn’t expect everyone to understand, but believed his fans would respect his point of view. He revealed that taking pictures would sometimes give away where he lives. “I don’t always want people to know where I am. If everyone just took their photo and didn’t share it, fine. But the problem is people share it online. It’s so uncomfortable!”

PewDiePie wrapped up the announcement by clarifying that he would love to take selfies with fans at meet and greets or scheduled events, however that he will no longer take photos out in public.

With over 106 million subscribers, the Swedish star is not only the biggest individual YouTuber, but one of the most recognized entertainers in the world. His lack of privacy is something most could not comprehend.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
