Top income on Youtube ? Once YouTube’s top-earning star, the gamer, who was born Felix Kjellberg, has managed to shrug off a number of controversies—including racist and anti-Semitic videos. He announced this month, though, that he’s taking a break from YouTube. One of two newcomers on this year’s list, Preston Arsement got his start playing Call of Duty and quickly became so popular that he started posting friendly pranks in addition to his gaming content. Outside of YouTube, his biggest moneymakers are the Minecraft servers he runs for seven figures annually.
Isn’t it Romantic has a nice premise: an altered state takes Rebel Wilson’s character’s life and turns it into a rom-com. Problem is: she is the hater of all things rom-com. The film is charming enough and the big message at the end of the day is that Rebel Wilson’s Natalie was lacking the self-assuredness she deserves to have. How to Train Your Dragon doesn’t get enough credit for being the substantial animated trilogy that it is. The third installment is the perfect finale to the coming of age story, too. Bonus: it helps that the film boasts the voice acting of everyone from Cate Blanchett to Jonah Hill.
The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger: This ordinary nature video got a fantastic voice-over narration by a guy named Randall, and the internet could not get enough of it. The “Honey Badger Don’t Care” meme was everywhere in 2011, inspiring parodies, t-shirts, and other products based on the hilariously bad-tempered creature. Before there was ?Grumpy Cat, Honey Badger ruled the web. See extra amazing movies on yt.
Best clip for a song in 2019 ? Lizzo made her name this year with her powerfully positive affirmations of selfhood, but Tempo tees off in much snarkier style: “Slow songs, they for skinny hoes,” she declares. “I’m a thick bitch, I need tempo.” Sure enough, this is a sterner, clubbier track than her other big 2019 hits Juice and Truth Hurts (the latter not eligible for this list as it first came out in 2017). Her incitement to cunnilingus is admirably casual, but Missy Elliott steals the show with her menagerie of purrs and trills.
