Justin Bieber Isn't Retiring After All

He was only kidding...
The Independent reports that Justin Bieber is not retiring after all, and was only joking when he said so earlier this week.
Bieber appeared on radio station Power 106 and said: "Um, I'm actually retiring man. I'm just gonna take some time. I think I'm probably gonna quit music, I'm quitting everything."
His fans then took to Twitter to post messages of concert and sadness. The full interview now reveals he was "messing around". There had been rumors he was joking since there wasn't an official statement or comment on his website or Twitter.
His manager, Scooter Braun, told ITN at the premiere of Bieber's movie Believe that Bieber was "just kidding". He said: "Next year he's taking a break just to make music and relax, take some time for himself for the first time since he was 12."
Bieber became a star when Braun scouted him on Youtube in 2007. He now has over 47 million Twitter followers and is one of the most-followed musicians in the world.
