California-based musician George Watsky set an insane new Guinness World Record for longest freestyle rap live on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube all while raising money for charity in the process.

The 33-year-old began his quest on May 6 while live on Twitch, and went hard for over 30 straight hours, finishing with at a whopping 33 hours, 33 minutes and 33 seconds.

The previous record had been set by Pittsburgh’s Harvey ‘Frzy’ Daniels who went for 31 hours straight.

Watsky went hard for over 30 hours.

During the marathon, the streamer managed to raise nearly $150,000. Not bad, considering Watsky claims to have “never freestyled for more than [three] minutes straight” until attempting this challenge.

According to the Guinness World Record rules, he was allowed one five-minute break every hour, but decided to stockpile his earned breaks to use them for longer intervals in order to shower, eat, and keep his rhymes going.

“This is the phenomenon ’cause we have an uncommon bond and you know that’s what we’re dropping on,” Watsky rapped during the last few moments of his record run.

“I’m gonna take it slow until we’re done and now I’m done. And now this f**king record is right here. This is respect and you know we are done,” the elated artist sang to close out the run on May 7.

The feat seems to have taken its toll on the rapper who took to Twitter to explain how he was holding up in the aftermath of the stream.

“My body is STRUGGLING but my heart is so full right now,” he wrote on May 8. “What a moment to be a part of. thank you all so much.”

Watsky is the only streamer to make history in recent weeks. In April, streamer CallMeCypher set a new record for the longest Twitch stream with over 200 hours straight.

It’s anyone’s guess as to what the rest of the year will bring record-wise.

Addison Rae blasts Ava Louise for publicly flirting with Bryce Hall

After TikTok star Ava Louise appeared to publicly shoot her shot with Bryce Hall over on Instagram, his girlfriend Addison Rae made sure to mark her territory with some loved-up snaps.

TikToker Ava Louise has been making waves on social media today after a series of bizarre posts, with several of them appearing to be aimed at Sway House member and fellow TikTok star Bryce Hall.

Being sure to tag Bryce Hall, Ava Louise appeared to share a series of sexually explicit messages directed towards the influencer, telling Hall that she “wanted to have sex” with him, “didn’t care” that he had a girlfriend and even hinting that she DM’d him explicit material from her OnlyFans account.

It appears that Addison Rae got wind of the flirty posts, and while she didn’t comment on the situation directly, she jokingly posted a photo of herself hugging a grinning Hall while she pouted. Seemingly making sure Ava knew where Hall stood, she captioned the photo as “mine.” As well as commenting on Rae’s photo affirming that she’s his “baby forever”, Hall posted a photo of the two of his own around the same time.

However, even this didn’t seem to deter Ava, as she commented on Rae’s post offering to “share” Hall, remarking that she thinks Addison is “hot” too.

With drama page TikTok Room updating fans on the situation, it didn’t take long for celebrity columnist Perez Hilton to weigh in on the situation, as he suggested that Ava Louise was “a better fit” for Hall than Rae was.

This in turn attracted the attention of Bryce Hall’s mom, Leah Hall, who was quick to call out Hilton for his comment by asking him: “Why would you say that?”.

Given the bizarre nature of the messages Ava was sharing, fans began to suspect that her Instagram account had been hacked. As well as posting about Bryce Hall, the account also referred to other TikTok stars like Tony Lopez and Dixie D’Amelio.

As well as joking that Tony Lopez had “blocked her because she was over the age of consent,” Ava also appeared to proposition Dixie D’Amelio. Tagging D’Amelio in her Instagram story, Ava said that she knew Dixie “played for the other team” and made an explicit proposition to her.

While Ava appeared to rebuke claims that she had been hacked – saying in an Instagram comment that she was “not hacked, just h***y” – fans remain unconvinced.
