Logan Paul's stream of consciousness cannot be stopped.

Paul, who makes about $15 million a year as one of the highest-paid YouTube stars, appeared on Fox Business Network on Monday for an interview about the expanding world of social video sharing. At least that's what it was supposed to be about before Paul launched into shoutouts to his home state of Ohio, bold statements about his income, and insistences that he's some kind of mega-athlete.

Before starting the interview, Paul had to correct the record. Host Liz Claman called him a "controversial" figure after posting a video from a so-called Japanese "suicide forest" at the end of 2017, but Paul clarified that he is "ex-controversial" now because he apologized for the video. He then got down to business, affirming that he is "everywhere and nowhere ... like a ghost" when it comes to social media, though he got oddly upset at Claman for "call[ing] me out" over his inactive Facebook account.

But things only got more stressful for Paul, as he revealed "my expenses just surpassed my income for the first time ever. " That has Paul "terrified," he said, adding that "I think it's the beginning of the end. I also have pinkeye." Paul then mentioned his time as a high school football star and insisted that it somehow made him "the fastest YouTuber," no, "the fastest entertainer on the planet," no, "the quickest man on the planet."
