Justin Bieber Says ‘I’m Retiring’ From Music

Justin Bieber Says ‘I’m Retiring’ From Music:
Looks like Beliebers might be in for a rough Christmas.
No amount of holiday gifts could compensate for the fact that Justin Bieber told L.A. radio station Power 106 Tuesday that he’s calling it quits after his new album, “Journals,” is released on Dec. 23.
“Um, I’m actually, I’m retiring man, I’m retiring,” Bieber said with a straight face behind black shades.

He added that he’s “just going to take some time. I think I’m probably going to quit music.”
If this is true, a retirement from music at 19 years old would be shocking to say the least. Bieber’s only been making music professionally for a little more than five years.

During the interview, he also said, “I’m here solely for my fans and for the music.”
Whether he was joking or not, Beliebers are NOT amused.
Bieber has not tweeted about a pending retirement, and a request for comment from his rep was not immediately returned.

Justin Bieber is no longer the most popular star on Twitter (that’s you, Katy Perry!), but he’s still got bragging rights to Instagram.
In 2013, the number-one liked photo on Instagram was this shot that Bieber, 19, posted four months ago.

“Me and uncle Will,” he wrote, next to a photo of himself with Will Smith.
More than 1.5 million people liked it — just a fraction of Bieber’s 12,000,000-plus followers.

In a recent Hollywood Reporter interview, it was revealed that Smith has been a great mentor to the teen heartthrob. Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, said that Smith has a weekly phone call to discuss life.
“He’s telling me: ‘Justin’s got to go through it. You can’t stop him from going through it,’” Braun said. “‘That’s youth in itself. He’s a young man who’s growing up, and that’s what makes him interesting and relatable. Otherwise, he’d be some kind of weird robot.’”
