Everywhere I read that Tubemate is such a wonderful YouTube replacement for screen off and download function, but when i wanted to install it after downloading it from the Opera webstore, I got really scared about all the permissions it asks to grant it.

Almost even more than the Google apps.....

So, I did not install it, but I still have the question is this Tubemate safe to use, is it abusing all its permissions (like Brightest Flashlight App) to milk all my personal data and sell it or what?

Tubemate uses permissions to personalize ads in the app. You can have no harm usinh it. Or if you are really that much paranoid, root your phone and revoke some permissions you feel unsafe from the app
