Shh. Nobody tell Justin Bieber that the retirement age is 65, not 21.
The Canadian crooner just told radio station Power 106 in LA that he's getting out of the biz after his next album drops on Dec. 23."After the new album, I'm actually, I'm retiring, man, I'm retiring," he said.
Does Biebs mean it? He certainly sounds believably world-weary. And if I had made a huge fortune before I was old enough to rent a car, I might peace out and just enjoy it, too. Once you've acquired and abandoned a monkey, there's nowhere to go but down, you know?
However, his posse was quick to counter his statement -- a source from his staff says Justin was just joking and has no plans to spend the rest of his days on his porch in a rocking chair."The kid's got ambition," the source told TMZ.
Hush, source. Don't burst my bubble. Allow me to enjoy, however briefly, a world in which Justin Bieber is about to not be a thing anymore. What a magical Christmas that would be.
