If you practically had a heart attack when Bieber announced that he was retiring, it must be a relief to know that the pop star’s management is saying that that’s “100 percent” not true.
According to a statement released by Scooter Braun Projects, the entertainment company behind the singer, it appears that Bieber just wants to shift the media’s perception of him to focus on creating more of a difference.
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.
In addition, Scott Manson, the COO of Scooter Braun Projects, said recently that Bieber plans to be back in the studio in 2014. So while Bieber might not be doing music for a while, he’s just taking a VERY WELL-DESERVED break!
We’ll miss you Justin, but we’ll be waiting!
