One of the internet’s biggest stars isn’t simply just that. PewDiePie, who’s well on his way to hitting fifty-million subscribers on the popular video sharing platform YouTube, is an actual person. As such, there are a bunch of small, interesting things you probably not know about him unless you are a super fan.
1. He dropped out of university to focus on YouTube
To say PewDiePie’s dedication and commitment to his career, audience, and passion is praiseworthy would be a massive understatement – it’s pretty incredible. In 2010, he was at university pursuing a degree in Industrial Economics and Technology Management.
2. PewDiePie’s content is more viewed than Rihanna’s
What happens when you take the most successful gaming entrepreneur and comedian of all time and put him side by side with one of the world’s most successful and famous singers? He owns that shit.
At the time of writing, RihannaVEVO has 10,197,140,534 YouTube views, overall. PewDiePie has 13,576,958,779. Boom!
It’s also worth noting he’s got well over double the amount of subscribers. You’ve been out-worked, Rihanna.
