YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has confirmed that his popular Pew News series will be going on the shelf for the time being – but why is he choosing to do so?

After going head-to-head with T Series for over a year, PewDiePie finally reached that magical 100 million subscribers mark thanks to his regular uploads of Minecraft, Meme Review, and Pew News.

However, in recent weeks, there has been a distinct lack of Pew News on his channel – leaving fans questioning if it had gone away forever and wouldn’t be coming back. 

PewDiePie, Twitter / TubefilterPewDiePie has cemented himself as the top dog on YouTube.

During his ‘Why I stopped’ upload on September 19, the YouTube star dove into topics about himself, including the drama about him wearing an ‘Iron Cross’ symbol, while also explaining why he stopped Pew News.

“It’s like, all these ideas are diseases that are just spread and I don’t like it – and it’s part of the reason why I stopped doing Pew News, because I hate playing into all this drama that doesn’t mean anything,” Pewds said, after discussing the return of ProJared to YouTube and beef surrounding James Charles.

The popular YouTuber continued on: “Like, there’s been so many things happening while I haven’t been doing Pew News and I can’t even recite one of them because it doesn’t matter. Everyone forgets about it a week after – like, no one should actually spend their time caring about these things, it’s a waste of time.

“I don’t want to spend my life caring about these things. Trust me, I’m doing you a favor by not doing Pew News – you don’t need to know about these things, they’re not important.”

Pewds confirmed that the Pew News show is “closed indefinitely” and that his newsreader character would be returning to retirement. 

However, he didn’t shut the door on a possible return down the line, jokingly adding that the persona will probably be dragged back out when PewDiePie makes another “oopsie.”

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
