Say it ain’t so! On Christmas Day, Justin dropped the bomb saying that he was “officially retiring,” and as you can imagine, Beliebers — and people everywhere — had no idea how to handle the news.
For some, Justin Bieber‘s Dec. 25 Twitter announcement that he was “officially retiring,” was a Christmas miracle. But for most fans — especially Beliebers — the shocking news was devastating, as if Christmas had been canceled.

Justin Bieber: ‘I’m Officially Retiring’
After rumors of Justin’s retirement swirled like a blizzard in early December, the singer confirmed them on Dec. 25 in a simple tweet:
My beloved beliebers I’m officially retiring
— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) December 25, 2013
Justin’s enormous announcement does coincide with the release of his second movie, Believe, so we’re still holding out hope that he’s just trying to drum up some last-minute publicity.
Because really, we can’t imagine a world without the Biebs. So HollywoodLifers, how do you feel about Justin’s announcement? Is it like receiving a lump of coal? Let us know!
