YouTube Star Lilly Singh Announces Indefinite Break From the Platform
The 30-year-old creator stated she wanted to take the time to focus on her mental health.
Famous YouTuber Lilly Singh has announced she will be taking a break from the platform to focus on mental health.
Singh, who is from Canada, said the hiatus is indefinite and she “could be happier” in her life right now, in the vlog she posted Monday.
“I am mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually exhausted,” she said in the video titled “I’ll see you soon." “I have been doing this consistently for eight years…. It’s been a lot.”
Singh has more than 14 million subscribers, whom she refers to as #TeamSuper. She said her break is “is in no way a reflection of how I feel about the platform of YouTube and of #TeamSuper. I love YouTube. I love #TeamSuper. It is not about you, this is to do with me."
The star, 30, also talked about how a lot of creators stay away from taking breaks out of fear their audience will abandon them, but she has made the decision to face that.
“YouTube [is] kind of is a machine,” she said. “It makes creators believe that we have to pump out content consistently even at the cost of our life, and our mental health, and our happiness.
"Because if you don’t, then you’ll become ‘irrelevant.'”
