Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was previously involved in an accident that left his left arm and shoulder in a bad shape. Now the former CS:GO pro has provided an update on his long-standing injury.

On March 11, shroud was involved in an incident where he flew off of his scooter and crashed into the asphalt. The popular streamer sustained several injuries to his left side, which included a series of broken bones in his left arm.

Subsequently, Grzesiek underwent surgery on March 13 to realign the broken bones, and ever since, the Canadian has had to fulfill a series of rehab procedures to manage the injury.

Shroud (Twitter)Shroud wasn’t best pleased with being left in a cast post-surgery.

Shroud’s injury update

Revealing details surrounding his progress since the incident, Grzesiek was asked on his current mobility in his left arm: “It’s not very good, but I’m getting this super intense brace-splint-thing.”

Shroud continued by detailing the rehab strategy that is in place, where he revealed that he’ll be wearing a brace alongside conduct a series of physical therapy sessions to restore the range of motion back to a similar standard that his dominant arm currently has.

Will shroud need more surgery?

After laying all his cards on the table, the ex-Counter-Strike pro unveiled that he might indeed need more surgery: “I might need another surgery, maybe, but it’s still going to take some time.”

However, the surgery will only be required if the mobility cannot be regained and then independently retained:

“Well basically, if I actually truly can’t get my mobility back through physical therapy and all different exercises, then he has one more thing that he does as his last treatment and it will 100% give me my range of motion back.”

Luckily, the arm in question is not what is predominantly responsible for his human aimbot skillset, with the streamer purposely landing on his left side to save any form of ailment coming to his money-maker. 

Should shroud require more surgery, he could come back with a Terminator–esque left arm, given that the surgery might involve planting titanium rods to aid with mobility and stability.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
