YouTuber Tana Mongeau has opened up on her YouTube hiatus, apologizing to her audience and explaining the reasons why she decided to take this step heading into 2020.

The 21-year-old became an internet sensation throughout 2019, with her marriage to Jake Paul taking over social media as fans tuned in to watch their relationship dynamic, and even try to figure out if it was legitimate.

The American even landed her own MTV reality show, but at the end of 2019, the couple announced that they were taking a break. Following a video uploaded to her channel on December 29 discussing the separation, Mongeau’s channel has been dormant, with no videos uploaded in almost three weeks.

On January 15, Mongeau addressed her disappearance from the platform, apologizing to fans who have been anxiously waiting for her next upload and explaining the reasons behind her sabbatical.

“Sorry for how long I haven’t uploaded,” she wrote on Twitter. “It won’t happen again this year. I’ve been trying to [take a] break for my mental and physical health, which are both failing miserably.”

The YouTube star did confirm that while she hasn’t been recording footage for her channel, the MTV cameras have continued filming her during her hiatus for her show Tana Turns 21, meaning her fans can see what happened during her time away.

This isn’t the first time that Tana has decided to step away from social media, announcing that she was taking a break away from Twitter and Instagram back in early December when Jake Paul released a song talking about how he missed his ex-girlfriend Alissa Violet.

In the post on December 4, the 21-year-old said she wanted to “advocate for authenticity and mental health awareness,” and that she felt she was “succumbing to the pressure of the highlight reel” that comes with being a star online.

For those eager to see Mongeau return to YouTube, she confirmed that will be uploading a new video “as soon as possible,” which will be a recap of her 2019.


How to get your 2020 Twitch Recap: A simple guide

Twitch has been rolling out 2020 recaps for both viewers and streamers, letting you see who you watched the most, and if you streamed, how many total viewers you racked up. So, here’s how you can get ahold of yours. 

Over the last few years, services like Spotify and Apple Music have started to give users a recap of their year – showing off who they listened to, how many hours they spent on the app, and also adding a few recommendations for the following year.

Users of other platforms have called for similar things, so they can see just how much time they’ve spent watching videos, listening to music, and even playing games.

Twitch is one of those platforms that has followed suit, giving both viewers and streamers a recap of their 2020 on the platform – including who they watched the most, how many messages they sent in chats, and what their favorite emote to spam was.

To get your hands on your own, account-specific recap – whether you streamed or just watched along with Twitch chat – you don’t have to jump through many hurdles.

Just make sure that the email address you use on your Twitch account is active and can receive emails. If that’s all sorted, then, you’ll get an email from Twitch delivering your stats. 

If you think you’ve already got an email and might have missed it, then simply go into your email inbox and search either your Twitch username or 2020 Twitch recap. It should be there. Also, make sure to check your spam inbox, it might have gotten lost along the way and ended up in there.

That’s all there is to it, really. You don’t have to go to any new website and opt into anything special, just make sure that the email account linked to your Twitch is able to receive emails.

Of course, as nice as it is to see which streamers you’ve wasted far too much time watching, some content creators aren’t happy. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pointed out that the stats are skewed, and his case ruined altogether, for some streamers because of bots.
