It was the collective sigh heard around the world when rumors had surfaced that Justin Bieber would be announcing that he was retiring from music.
The announcement became official when the singer confirmed late on Christmas Eve via his official Twitter that he was indeed retiring. The simple tweet said the following, “My beloved beliebers I’m officially retiring.” Right afterwards, he began to back off, citing that the media takes things out of context when dealing with him and even went so far to say “The media talks a lot about me.They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I’m never leaving you, being a belieber is a lifestyle.”
When the first tweet was made, Beliebers around the world started to mourn, but when the second tweet was released, they rejoiced, unlike the rest of the world.
This past year hasn’t been a particularly great one for the pop star starting on New Years when a photographer was hit by a car and died, trying to take a picture of his infamous white Lamborghini. Things did not get better, but worse as he tried to portray himself as a “bad boy” with stunts such as speedy through his pricey gated community, doing graffiti all over things, his so-called friends throwing parties at his expense when he was out on tour, showing up more than two hours late for a concert and of course the peeing in a mop bucket stunt and cursing at a photograph of former U.S. president, Bill Clinton.
But things do look a little coincidental since his new concert film, Justin Bieber’s Believe had its red carpet premiere a few weeks back and he has been releasing random tracks every week for the last couple of months. Some are even starting to wonder if it’s a major publicity stunt, but whatever it is, we’re sure we’ll hear about it.
