Justin Bieber Retirement Rumors: The Lovers
The mayhem all started on Dec. 16, when BigBoy asked Justin about his next album.
“New album?” Justin said, with a totally straight face. “I’m actually retiring, man. I’m taking… I’m just gonna take some time. I think I’m probably gonna quit music.”
Say what?! Justin quitting music would undoubtedly leave a giant, gaping hole in the industry, and his fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts:
My brother just told me that Justin Bieber is retiring. It’s not retiring, it’s called taking a break you idiot I though you had a degree!
