‘People look at money as something undoubtedly good – it couldn’t possibly be something negative to have money, which is understandably a strange concept for people to accept,’ he added.
‘But you look at people who win the lottery and then having money fundamentally changes their whole life, not just how they view life but also how other people view them, and I think that’s a change in particular that I feel like I really want to protect.’
Using air quotes, Felix added: ‘I try to live “modestly”. Obviously I don’t considering how much I make, I try to live modestly, because I wanna just live a normal life, I don’t want money to change my life.
‘It’s great to have but it can also become a problem,’ he revealed, before laughing and imagining the clickbait title he could have capitalised on: ‘Millionaire rants about why money is bad.’
Explaining that money doesn’t solve all problems, he joked: ‘Everyone is a blood-sucking vampire, and they want your money.
‘And as soon as they know you have money, they are coming for it!’
The honest video comes after the star’s competitor T-Series took the lead by 100,000 subscribers in the YouTube battle which has been raging since November – and it doesn’t seem like Felix will come back from it this time.
After the gamer held YouTube’s most subscribed spot for six years, this month the Indian music label finally overtook him, despite Pewds hitting the 91 million mark first.
While the crown passed between them a number of times, it appears that PewDiePie’s reign at the top is well and truly over.
