Justin Bieber: Retiring or Just Taking A Break?

A retiring Bieber you say? Just recently, Justin Bieber stated in an interview that he could be potentially retiring, but little did we know, he took the statement further when being asked about it. During a quick interview on the purple carpet of his Believe movie premiere just last week, Justin was asked about his so-called retirement. The pop sensation made it seem like it wasn’t a joke. He then tweeted on Christmas Eve, “My beloved beliebers I’m officially retiring” which made his fans go crazy all over the world. When this happened, it scared his fans into thinking he may have had enough. Soon after the tweet, Justin tweeted again stating that the media makes up a lot of lies about him that aren’t true and that he is “here forever”.

Since 2009, Justin has been in the mind set of “go go go” which can lead to rethinking and reevaluating himself, especially when he is one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. I honestly do think Bieber needs a break from this crazy life he leads each and everyday. The 19 year old has had many attacks against who he is and what he stands for over the past year of his life. From a huge breakup with former girlfriend Selena Gomez, a world tour, to various media attacks on him; it is say to say that the kid needs a break!

The idea of “retiring” might be a bit of a stretch for him, but he needs to seriously consider taking a long and healthy break where he can find himself and spend more time with the people that care for him most. Justin has stated in the past that he has a hard time trusting people, so who would be better for him to be with than his family? After a long year and a half, the Believe Tour has come to an end. Justin released a new album entitled Journals on December 23rd, which seems to resemble his life since the whole “Believe” phenomenon made its way to us in 2012.

Don’t get me wrong, Justin is one of the most talented artists in the game right now, but he IS human and he needs a break. Even if he just spent time on a long vacation on an island with friends and family and had fun, this would be beneficial to him. Really, anywhere that is private and away from any kind of media outlet is definitely something he should look into. Normally, celebrities who do take a break find themselves wanting to do something because they feel like they aren’t doing enough. In my opinion, Justin should relax, grab a pen and paper and when he feels like something is worthy enough to be in a song, write it down. I know I shouldn’t be the one to tell him how to do it, but by taking at least a year long break will make him bigger and getter than ever.

Justin knows that he needs a break, and with the “retirement” scare, it showed how many people would really miss him. Although I do believe Justin should take it easy for a long while, this doesn’t mean I am saying a permanent retirement is necessary. Justin has a long and bright future ahead of him and I can (impatiently) wait for what is to come next.
