Longtime YouTuber Shane Dawson is a well-known face on the video platform, having skyrocketed to further fame following his documentary series over controversial internet stars like Jeffree Star, Tana Mongeau, and even Jake Paul – and now, after months of waiting, his next project finally has a release date.

While Dawson teased the documentary in a series of cryptic photos in late June, fans didn’t get a release date for the project until much later, when he published a Tweet admitting that he would upload “something else” in July, following his upcoming “Ugly Side of the Beauty World” in fall 2019.

However, fans were left in the dark as to a date for the project – that is, until July 13.

Dawson posted yet another series of photos to Twitter that revealed the due date for his next video for the week of July 14, showing a series of empty soda cans lined up on his kitchen counter.

“This can only mean one thing,” Dawson wrote of the mess. “New video coming… this week!”

Although fans are aware of his joint project with Jeffree Star coming later in the year, they’re still relatively in the dark as to the subject matter of his July release – but his photos from June might provide a hint as to his forthcoming series.

The YouTuber posted a slew of pictures to Twitter that showed what appeared to be a video setup inside of a hotel room, with his face featured in the viewfinder of his camera.

Fans shared their theories across the net, with some speculating that Dawson’s teaser hinted at his investigation of a haunted hotel, an idea that he has toyed with before in previous uploads.

Considering his recent stint in conspiracy theories, however, his latest video may investigate hidden cameras in hotel rooms – although no one is certain of this theory, just yet.

Thus far, Dawson has kept tight-lipped in regards to his next release, making his fans wait with bated breath before diving into another drama-filled roller coaster ride of content – which could be as wildly successful as his previous series.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
