Justin Bieber has an odd sense of humor or he’s just plain not funny!
The teen idol, who recently tweeted to his 48 million followers that he’s retiring, was hoping to get a big LOL from his fans.
Instead — he got many detractors wishing it was true.
So this weekend, Justin’s management team had to step in to clarify that it was just a joke folks.
Scott Manson, COO of Scooter Braun Projects, told the Wall Street Journal, Justin is “100 percent” not retiring and plans to be back in the studio next year.
Allison Kaye, GM of Scooter Braun Projects, released this statement:
“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.”
