Justin Bieber Jokes About Retirement, Internet Wants To Belieb He’s Telling The Truth

justin-bieber

Oh, Justin Bieber. We can always count on you to provide us with something interesting on otherwise slow news days.

While taking part in a radio interview this morning (12/18) with Power106 in Los Angeles, Justin Bieber told listeners he was considering walking away from music after his next album hits stores. He said, “The new album… I’m actually retiring. I’m retiring man. I’m just gonna take some time. I think I’m probably going to quit music.”

As you can imagine, fans began crying foul online within moments of the clop airing and people who have spent the last five years making fun of the pop sensation’s ever flaw began tweeting their joy. We felt the news was a bit too well timed, considering Justin’s new album comes out in a few days and everyone stopped talking about it the moment Beyonce surprised us with her new album, and it seems the folks at DigitalSpy felt the same. After doing some digging and eventually reaching the Biebs’ reps the site claims to have been told the artist behind “Confident” has no plans of retiring anytime soon. You can view the interview at the end of this post.

Bieber has yet to tweet about the interview and all the digital chaos that has followed, but we expect his reps to make a more formal statement as the news of his faux retirement begins to catch fire online. He did, however, mention a music video for “Confident” should be released before the album arrives on Sunday. We will bring you more on this story as it continues to develop.
