Justin Bieber Tweets about retiring

By Cynthia Herbert :: 11:24 PM

Young pop star Justin Bieber shocked millions of teenage girls everywhere on Christmas Eve by Tweeting from his official Twitter account that he would be retiring.

“My beloved beliebers,” he wrote, around 10:15 PM Eastern time, “I’m officially retiring.”

After the news had a chance to sink in and make its way around the Twittersphere, Bieber followed up with two additional Tweets around 11:00 PM. See below.



Other than the three Tweets, no other official message has been made by Bieber’s manager or recording company as of yet. Everyone is waiting to see if this is some kind of elaborate Christmas Twitter hoax, or if Bieber’s account was somehow hacked.

Earlier this month, Bieber had made mention of retiring when he was on a radio interview in Los Angeles. However, he quickly backpedaled when the show’s host and staff became shocked by the news.

“I want to grow as an artist and I’m taking a step out, I want my music to mature,” he said on Power 106, a Los Angeles radio station.

Stay tuned – we will update this story as news becomes available.
