Justin Bieber retiring?
2013-12-18 by Philip Whitehead | 118 Comments

Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber has recently stated in a radio interview with Power 106 that his next album may well be his last. The rumours have swept the internet after he was quoted as saying, "The new album ... I'm actually retiring man," continuing, "I'm just gonna take some time - I think I'm probably gonna quit music."

It is unknown how serious Bieber was while discussing these plans although it is thought that declining ticket sales may be playing a factor.

it's pretty fucked up if he's retiring because he's not selling as many tickets as he used to

Yeah, but imagine hitting middle age and realizing that despite being wealthy, you haven't done anything that has had staying power.

Seems pretty logical to me. He made stacks of cash out of some kiddies who are now moving on to some other crap and he is wise enough to realise it's time to go and spend it and do other stuff. I mean I'm assuming he wasn't in it for art's sake.

All this is a publucity stunt. He says he's going to retire in hopes that it will get peoples attention and make them buy the next album since its his last. Then after he takes a few years off he "unexpectedly" comes out of retirement, again hoping to get attention and boost sales.

The way he says it is clearly in a sarcastic manner. Even if he was serious though, this isn't going to go through. Remember last year when One Direction said they'd stop making music for 10 years after the next album, only to then release another one this year? Katy Perry also said she was going to do the same last year before her new one dropped. No one in pop culture stays true to their word. However, if this ends up being true..........WHAT AM I GOING TO REVIEW????? :'(
