During an interview with Big Boy, of Power 106 in Los Angeles, Bieber stunned listeners: "I'm retiring, yeah." He further goes on to shockingly say, "I'm taking a... I'm just gonna take some time. I think I'm probably gonna quit music."
In regards to the truth however, E! News reports that an insider says, "of course it's not true." Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, further shed light on more of an impending "break" than "breakup" with music. "I just want him to take some time to himself, so he can have that time alone, 'cause he's been working since he was 12-years-old," Braun told On Air with Ryan Seacrest Wednesday morning.
With a concert documentary, "Believe," scheduled to be released in theaters on Christmas Day, and a 15-track compilation of previously released and unreleased material, "Journals," on iTunes now until Jan. 2, Bieber may actually deserve that extended time off. Not to mention the numerous paparazzi scandals.
