After what came off as a semi-sarcastic remark to a morning show earlier this month, Justin Bieber reiterated via Twitter that he's looking into a very early retirement.
During his chat with Los Angeles' Power 106 morning show Big Boy's Neighborhood, the Baby singer was asked what's next for him once he releases his new album. "After the new album, uh, I'm actually, uh, I'm retiring man, I'm retiring," the 19-year-old responds in a serious tone. "I'm gonna take some time. I think I'm probably gonna quit music."
Following that interview and the release of his album Journals on Dec. 23, Bieber tweeted:
My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) December 25, 2013
This, of course, caused an uproar among Beliebers who retweeted the message almost 300,000 times.
What do you think? Is it time for Bieber to retire?
