Justin Bieber has sent his fans into a state of despair (and his haters into ecstasy) by announcing that he would be retiring from music after the release of his latest album. "After the new album, I'm actually retiring man. I'm retiring," were his exact words. His album, Complete My Journals is due on Dec. 23.
Now, it could be one of four things:
1. He is joking
2. He wants to create a sensation before the release of his latest album
3. He was under the influence
4. He really means it
Whatever the case may be, everyone-whether they are Bliebers or not- have something to say.
justin bieber retiring? 2014 hasn't even started and im already starting to like it— jessica (@jessaneni) December 18, 2013
Opinions may be divided over the announcement, but people will miss his antics, perhaps not his music.
But the fact is that he is just 19 years old.
It’s also more than likely that if he does not stick to his word, Bieber is taking a break. He said during the interview that he wants his talent to mature."I want to grow as an artist and I'm taking a step out, I want my music to mature," he told the radio station.
One would wonder what the lad would do once he hangs up his mic and guitar.
NOT skateboarding for sure.
He has recently tried his hand at Tattooing. Maybe he can explore the possibility further?
But whatever it is, we hope his fans do not get too serious over it. They do have the possibility of getting out of control. Remember the horribly disturbing #CuttingForBieber campaign? It still sends goose bumps down our spine.
