Justin Bieber first tortured his fans with retirement talk a few weeks ago. Apparently, he’s not letting up on the notion. Bieber posted three Tweets on Christmas Eve that revisited the notion of retirement, but also offered up a contradictory notion -
“My beloved beliebers I’m officially retiring”
“The media talks a lot about me.They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I’m never leaving you, being a belieber is a lifestyle.”
“Be kind loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ Merry Christmas IM HERE FOREVER”
Right now, there’s no reason to believe that Bieber is going to retire. However, the notion of a long hiatus is a definite possibility. If Bieber took an extended holiday from music and the limelight it could go in either direction. He could potentially lose a large portion of his massive following or a comeback could rejuvenate his image and attract new Beliebers. Either way, I think fans need to be prepared to see Bieber take an extended break from music, but don’t worry – we don’t expect Justin to step away from the limelight completely.
