Justin Bieber Is Not Retiring
[HipHollywood] Put the champagne away folks … Justin Bieber is not retiring after all.
The Canadian pop star made a lot of people happy earlier this week when he announced he was getting out of show business, but Scott Manson, COO of Scooter Braun Projects, the entertainment company behind Bieber, tellsThe Wall Street Journal the star will back in the studio next year.
Allison Kaye, GM of Scooter Braun Projects, released the following statement after Bieber’s Christmas Eve tweets:
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.
Damn. Almost, people.
