The term ‘uwu’ has become popular across the internet in the past few months, and Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys had the most adorable explanation for what it actually means.

‘uwu’ is a popular emote within the anime community, with many using it to express emotion instead of using an emoji. Its usage blew up across the internet in recent months, and quickly became a meme.


Despite its popularity booming, some people still don’t know what it means, and Pokimane decided to explain in the most adorable way after she used it in her recent Instagram story.

What is ‘uwu’?

Pokimane posted an Instagram story captioned ‘itz me uwu’, in which she zoomed in on a digital drawing of herself, saying “it’s meeeee!” excitedly. Her next story showed a picture of her with a group of friends, captioned ‘so much uwu in one pic. uwuwuwuwuwuwu.’ This apparently confused some fans as to what the term means, so the Twitch star decided to explain in yet another story.


“I feel like there’s gonna some people who don’t know what ‘uwu’ is, and I like to be inclusive of all people so I’m gonna explain,” she began.

She then went on to explain, saying, “so ‘uwu’ is just a little face, kinda like ‘u.u’ or ‘o.o’. The U’s are the eyes, and the W’s the mouth, and it signifies being happy.” 


The female streamer then ended with the most adorable smile, which is even cuter when you remember she used the emote to caption the photo of her with her friends. Too wholesome.

It’s not Pokimane’s only cute moment

The streaming star had another adorably wholesome moment recently, this time during a Twitch broadcast of popular game Teamfight Tactics. The game is similar to that of DoTA’s Auto Chess, and has been a huge hit since its debut earlier this month.


During her first ever stream of the game, Pokimane scored victorious and shared the most incredible reaction with her viewers. “Yes!” she screamed excitedly. “I’m winning! Oh my god! I’m sorry! All me,” she exclaimed, pointing to herself.

Teamfight Tactics isn’t the easiest game in the world to learn, especially if you’ve never played League of Legends before, which is exactly why her reaction is so great. Never change, Poki.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.


With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

Future’s new Ringbrothers Chevy K5 Blazer

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.


Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
