Justin Bieber Says He's 'Retiring,' 'Probably Gonna Quit Music'


Is Justin Bieber retiring?!

The 19-year-old pop star sat down for an interview with Big Boy for Los Angeles' Power 106 station and made a statement that probably shocked lots of those Beliebers.

"New album ... uh ... I'm actually retiring, man," Bieber said. "I'm retiring, yeah."

"I'm glad you announced that," the host responded. "I'm not gonna even play nothing else but that."

"I'm retiring, yeah," he added, keeping a straight face. "I'm taking a ... I'm just gonna take some time. I think I'm probably gonna quit music."

Apparently, it was all just one big joke, according to Gossip Cop.

"Of course it's not true," a source told E! News of Bieber's supposed retirement plans.

Although it's highly unlikely he will leave the biz for good, Bieber is looking to change some things up in his career.
