    Here's how it works:

    Essentially, when certain videos that contain content that belongs to other people, they can opt to take it down, or place their own ads on the video. If you use a Youtube channel manager add on like vidIQ, you can see that the MCN is listed as UMG. This means that msvogue23 doesn't receive any of the ad revenue from that video, or likely any of the other videos on the channel. So no, not getting paid from google.

    Most content owners will opt to remove videos that infringe their copyright, but if it's pulling in hundreds of thousands of engagements a day, why remove it when you could make more money on it? Like the poster above suggested, a large amount of the traffic is likely not organic, but it's boosted enough to make thousands every day with UMG served ads.
