After a year full of controversy and backlash, it may not be a big surprise that Justin Bieber's new documentary film, Believe, flopped at the box office.
Believe is Bieber's second documentary film, after 2011's Never Say Never, reports The Straits Times.
The latter enjoyed a strong opening, raking in US$29.5 million (S$37.4 million) in first weekend sales, whereas Believe only earned US$4.5 million in its first five days.
This comes right after Bieber announced on his Twitter that he is "officially retiring". He later took it back, telling his fans, "I'm never leaving you."
Judging from the lack of enthusiastic response from his fanbase, maybe Bieber should shy away from the limelight for a while.
According to a report in The New Paper, the 19-year-old Canadian pop star’s new album Journals, which was rush-released digitally two days before Christmas, limped into the Australian chart at No. 35 this week with just 4,067 sales.
