YouTube star Lilly Singh has announced to fans that she’s taking a break, specifically to focus on her mental health.
After eight years of posting content to her 14 million subscribers, the Canadian creator and author known as IISuperwomanII revealed her intention to take an indefinite hiatus in a video posted Tuesday. 
“This is not clickbait. I’m not trying to get on the trending page. I’m not trying to make a dramatic thumbnail to get views,” she began, addressing her fans collectively known as #TeamSuper. “The title is not a lie. I am planning to take a break from YouTube.”
