Tana Mongeau has always had a rocky relationship with her fans, whether it be through allegations of racism, her bumpy marriage with Jake Paul or straight-talking approach on social media.

Most recently, Mongeau divided fans over her participation in the #NudesforBiden campaign, wherein she would send explicit photos to fans in exchange for proof that they voted for the Democrat candidate. 

This led to speculation that Mongeau had committed a federal crime by engaging in electoral fraud, but this was a claim that she later denied.

Mongeau recently received scrutiny for participating in the #NudesforBiden campaign.

These days, fans have noticed a marked change in her usual content style on YouTube – and many of them aren’t happy. 

Previously known for her wacky ‘storytime’ content, which involves creators recounting outlandish anecdotes from their lives, Mongeau has seemingly made the recent transition to a more vlog-style content featuring her friends.

This has led to many fans comparing her to famed Slovak YouTuber David Dobrik, but unfortunately, this comparison is far from positive.

A lot of fans compared Mongeau’s vlogs to that of YouTuber David Dobrik.

One YouTube user said in a comment with over 2,000 likes: “Is it just me or do these ‘David Dobrik’ style vlogs just not work for her? Maybe it’s because I’m familiar with his friend group and there’s structured story lines amongst the chaotic clips. Tana’s is filled with a bunch of people I don’t know or like. These clips are definitely high energy but lack any real entertainment value. “

Another YouTube user commented: “Dude this content is so lifeless. Like for real, I ain’t even trying to be mean. This isn’t you, this is David and you clearly don’t wanna listen to your fans. This is just so sad to see I don’t even know how to word it.”

Meanwhile, a further YouTube user said: “What is entertaining about this Tana? You meeting up and talking and laughing with a bunch of ppl we don’t know, not knowing what’s going on? This sucks.”

As pointed out by entertainment reporter DefNoodles, this new content style is not doing Mongeau any favours.

He shares figures that demonstrate that in the couple of months which is when she started introducing this more ‘Dobrik’-type content, her channel stopped growing entirely, with her gaining 0 new subscribers in the month of October. 

She also lost a total of 20,000 subscribers in the month of September, around the time she introduced this new direction for her videos.

With her new content style being flooded with criticism and having a tangible impact on her channel, it is interesting to see where Mongeau will go from here.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
