Is Justin Bieber really retiring?
On L.A.'s radio station Power 106, Bieber caused some teen hearts to flutter after he coyly revealed that he's retiring after his next album. “Um, I’m actually, I’m retiring man, I’m retiring," he said in a low, raspy voice.
"I'm glad you announced that. I'm not gonna even play nothing else but that," Big Boy, host of the radio show Big Boy's Neighborhood, said.
"I think I’m probably going to quit music," Biebs continued.
When the jockeys questioned him about his next venture, he explained, "I'm gonna go golf."
"Really, though?" asked Big Boy.
"No, I'm just messing around, man," Bieber replied.
The hosts let out a collective sigh and laughed it off. However, the entire nation went into a frenzy, trying to determine whether they should shrug it off or take it seriously.
The full interview is available on the show's website.

I f what he said wasn't a joke, this will be a terrible Christmas present for his Beliebers. He has 5 brand-new songs being released on December 23rd off his new album, Complete My Journals. He also announced the Christmas-Day release of his movie, Believe.
The film's trailer, ironically, starts with this quote, spoken by Bieber, "When you've reached a certain point in your life, there are people out there waiting to see you fall."
Nothing was confirmed on the pop star's Twitter page, which has 48 million followers. Instead, he tweeted today about his new CD release.
