“I am mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted,” she stated of the situation.

She likewise commented on the pressure that YouTubers feel to constantly make videos, calling the platform a “machine” that creators throw themselves into for fear of becoming “irrelevant.”

“The thing about YouTube is… it’s kind of a machine, and it makes creators believe that we have to pump out [content] consistently, even at the cost of our life and mental health and happiness,” she continued. “Because, if you don’t, you’ll become irrelevant.”

Additionally, Singh feels that YouTube has changed so much that she “doesn’t understand it,” and hopes to re-evaluate her definition of success and what she wants her legacy to become during her break.

Singh has likewise started her own production company, which she wishes to focus on in the interim, along with her charity work.
