23 year old and popular YouTube star, Logan Paul has just announced he will no longer be releasing material on a “daily” basis. Beginning in September of 2016, Paul has since built up an audience of 17 million subscribers. He posted a total of 536 daily vlogs – although in recent weeks there were several skipped days.
He announced this update in a 16 minute vlog over the weekend, claiming to abandon the daily model because he “wants to exercise his creativity in different ways… If anyone is going to end my career, okay, it’s going to be me,” he added.
He then launched into a 10-minute segment in which he and his friends pick up his $150,000-plus custom Mercedes SUV.
The move comes after he notably had to put the series on a one-month hiatus at the start of the year after posting a vlog where he filmed the body of an apparent suicide victim in a Japanese forest.
Although he later apologized, YouTube temporarily suspended ad revenue on his channels and put his YouTube Red projects on hold, citing a “recent pattern of behavior.” Despite his apologies,
Paul seems to have barely tamed his act since. Paul’s “new chapter” involves jokes about eating Tide Pods, a vlog in which he pulled a fish out of a pond and pretended to give it CPR, and tasing a dead rat. Once again, YouTube temporarily suspended ads on his channel.
In the 16 minute vlog, Paul explains that he is stepping back from regular vlogging because he has “diversified, bro,” and he plugs an upcoming talk show called Impulsive, though it’s unclear whether he’s referring to his brother Jake’s forthcoming YouTube Red talk show or something else entirely.
He further promises “the vlog will never be finished as long as my heart stays thumping” and that “your boy [Logan Paul] will get more and more and more lit.”
His daily content will be missed … by some.
