So is Justin Bieber really retiring? You decide after reading this vague tweet

26 December 2013 / 2 years 10 months ago

Teen pop megastar Justin Bieber has set Twitter ablaze with a message suggesting he may be stepping away from the stage - just as his new movie hits theatres on Christmas Day.

"My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring," the 19-year-old Bieber said on Twitter to his nearly 48 million followers.

The message has been retweeted more than 240,000 times and comments from fans flooded the globally popular messaging site.

But a subsequent tweet from the Canadian teen idol left some doubt about his future plans, reports AFP via ST Communities.

"The media talks a lot about me. They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I'm never leaving you, being a belieber is a lifestyle," he wrote.

Then, Bieber tweeted a trailer for his latest movie, Justin Bieber's Believe, which opens in US theatres on Wednesday, and "Merry Christmas everyone. Be kind to one another."

He told a Los Angeles radio station last week that he was "quitting music, quitting everything," saying: "I'm going to go (play) golf."
