Because according to early estimates, Believe is doing UN-believably poorly at the theaters!
Believe didn't even crack the top ten! The movie promising to shed new light on the singer's troubled year made just $1.2 million, putting it at 14th for the day, behind Anchorman 2, American Hustle, Frozen, and Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Not great considering the amaze theater turnout for Christmas 2013, and a far cry from Never Say Never's $30 million opening weekend!
Ouch! Maybe retiring doesn't sound so funny now.
