Unfortunately, Justin Bieber is NOT retiring, you will see more and more of him over the next few years talking about how Selena Gomez dumped him. His mananger told Access Hollywood: ‘This is the fun thing about these Vines [videos] people post: they’re only a certain amount of time, so they cut off before the rest of the statement when he says ‘just kidding,’’.
He hasn’t taken time off since he was 12.. he knows he wants it, and wants to spend time with this family. His younger brother and sister are starting to grow up and he doesn’t want to miss their childhood. I think for his wellbeing at 19, 20 years old, [it’s good for him] to take time for himself, to figure out who he wants to be.
I think he’s going through normal teenage stuff and he’s trying to fight this idea of wanting to be normal, but then the responsibility that comes with being who he is. We address all that in the film.
Justin’s new movie is what happens when you get knocked down.. this movie shows Justin facing adversity and how he’s really responding to it because no one’s really heard him speak with his own voice in a while now.’
