We have been sobbing since Justin Bieber shocked the world yesterday with the news he was retiring following the promotion of his forthcoming album but now we can all breathe a sigh of relief after insiders insist the 19-year-old isn't retiring after all.
The startling revelations sent the entire planet into a Bieber-fever frenzy as he told radio station Power 106: “After the new album, I'm actually retiring man. I'm retiring.”

But don't worry Beliebers it turns out Justin's terrifying statement could just be the result of the 19-year-old's exhaustion after a somewhat turbulent year in the lime light, but have no fear, there's plenty more classic pop to come from this superstar yet, insiders insist.
An insider close to the controversial 'baby' hitmaker has told MailOnline: “'Justin's going through a phase - no-one's worried. He's not retiring - he's being a little punk!
“Listen, he just raised $1.2million in the Philippines this week, his movie's premiering tonight, he has a new album - he's not going anywhere, everything's fine.”
Well we hoped this was all just some teen dramz spurring out of the Bieb's mouth after the star seemed slightly uncertain of his own claims as soon as they came out, back tracking almost instantly to host Bog Boy, explaining: “I want to grow as an artist and I'm taking a step out, I want my music to mature.”
It's been a pretty tough year for Justin as the teen heart throb spent 2013 defending himself from a barrage of bad press following dozens of slightly embarrassing incidents during his 'Believe' world tour.
While in the UK the singer not only angered his young fan base with huge delays for gigs but also scrapped with British photographers before continuing with his bad boy antics across Europe and the rest of the globe.
MailOnline have now revealed Justin will be spending the holidays at home with his family for a well earned break as his hotly anticipated new album 'Journals' is released next week.
