Well, now it’s official. Justin Bieber is NOT retiring from music!
The Biebs tried to make a joke out of media reports that the 19-year-old singer was leaving music for good.
But that only made things MUCH worse!
Then a source confirmed that it all was a poorly executed joke, and now JB’s people are saying the same thing.
Scott Manson, the COO of Scooter Braun Projects, said Justin is “100 percent” not calling it quits, and GM Allison Kaye clarified:
"Justin is a hard working 19-year-old who would prefer that his recent fundraising work in the Philippines and the considerable amount raised for the cause be the media’s focus more than the recent reporting on him retiring. Regarding his recent tweeting about his 'retirement' Justin felt that this was the best way to respond to the latest in a long line of inaccurate or wildly exaggerated media reports about him. He chose to channel his frustration into playing along with this baseless rumor and even used 'beloved' to tip off his core fans that it wasn't real. But within 20 minutes, Justin realized that fans were confused by the media reports and clarified that he was kidding. This wasn't a planned stunt, it was just another day in the life of living under the microscope. Justin loves his fans and understands that this scrutiny comes along with his success and the interest in him from fans and media."
Good! We’re glad this is all as clear as a Bieber track being played in stereo surround sound! Ha!
Just stop toying with us, Justin!
