YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is the most subscribed independent creator on the video platform, boasting over 96 million subscribers in wake of his long-running battle with T-Series: but now, the Swede is worried that his channel is losing traction.

Kjellberg took a close look at his analytics in a video on June 15, where he jokingly claimed that his channel was “dying,” and was even prepared for his YouTube career to end at any moment.

“I think it’s interesting to note…. Anyone that came before me, almost every single channel that has come before me has just disappeared,” PewDiePie explained. “…because of this fact, I’ve always looked at YouTube like it could end any day. Like I should be ready to pack my bags at any day.”

Kjellberg examined his stats throughout the years, taking note of his ups and downs in relation to the multiple scandals that have cropped up in his career – taking special care to point out how far his numbers had dropped after he’d begged fans to end the “Subscribe to PewDiePie” meme in late April.

That’s not all; PewDiePie even noticed that YouTube stars Jake and Logan Paul had skyrocketed past his own fame on the platform, especially in relation to Logan Paul’s international debacle at Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018.

Logan Paul, YouTubeLogan Paul is one of YouTube’s most controversial figures, having made international headlines after filming the body of a suicide victim in early 2018.

“Jake Paul has technically been bigger than I have ever been,” PewDiePie exclaimed. “…Holy shit, that’s nuts. So, the ‘Suicide Forest’ was literally four times as big as the PewDiePie vs T-Series stuff. That’s nuts.”

Despite these trends, Kjellberg was adamant that his subscriber count “doesn’t matter” to him, noting the unique mental health issues YouTubers encounter due to keeping track of their statistics in relation to other creators on the site.

PewDiePie, TwitterDespite losing his crown to T-Series, PewDiePie remains as YouTube’s most subscribed independent creator on the platform.

PewDiePie lost the mantle of YouTube’s “most subscribed” channel in late March, after Bollywood label T-Series finally surpassed the Swede in spite of their famous struggle.

While T-Series might hold YouTube’s crown, PewDiePie still reigns as the site’s most popular independent creator – but these titles aren’t massively important to him, as evidenced by his statement about his analytics.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has hopped on the ASMR trend, and she brought singer Bebe Rexha along with her for a hilarious relaxation session — complete with a few insights into both stars’ lives.

Charli D’Amelio may be known for her catchy choreography, but it looks like the TikTok celebrity is more than just a dancer. Now, she’s delving into the world of ASMR, and brought Bebe Rexha along for the ride.

Their ASMR collaboration, uploaded to YouTube on October 23, came just two weeks after Charli’s appearance in Rexha’s ‘Baby I’m Jealous’ music video with Doja Cat, as well as a few other key influencers like Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg.

It looks like the group has gotten close in the days that followed, with Bebe and Charli settling down for snacks in front of a high-sensitivity ASMR mic to talk about their careers and favorite foods.

Charli D’Amelio, Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg appeared in a music video with Doja Cat and Bebe Rexha earlier this month.

Although plenty of hilariousness ensued, the two dropped quite a few facts for their fans, with Bebe Rexha admitting that she gets anxiety when flying on airplanes.

That’s not all; Charli was also asked about the “funnest moment” in her career, which she whittled down to having dinner with her friends or just hanging out with other TikTokers, rather than attending big events as an A-list celeb.

“I realize like, this is crazy!” she said. “It’s those little moments where it just like, clicks for a second, and I’m like, ‘Woah, that’s kind of insane.’ Those are the best.”

Although Charli’s ASMR series is still in its early stages, Bebe Rexha suggested they go full-on Mukbang for future episodes — a style of video where influencers sit down with a huge spread of food and chow down in front of the camera.

It seems that this style of video is rather popular in some online circles, although it still remains to be seen if Charli’s fanbase is up for that kind of content. Nevertheless, her pilot ASMR experience was certainly a fun ride, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the star in her new journey into the world of relaxation.
