Justin Bieber tweets: 'I'm officially retiring'

On Christmas Eve, and on the eve of the premiere of his documentary Believe, Justin Bieber tweeted, "My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring."

Is he for real? Well, the tweet did follow a another public comment about retirement. Last week, he told Los Angeles radio station Power 106, "After the new album, I'm actually, I'm retiring man, I'm retiring."

However, sources told TMZ the singer was joking.

In an e-mail to USA TODAY from the Philippines, the final stop of his 15-month Believe tour, Bieber wrote, "I'm going to take my time (next year) to really find my sound as an adult. That takes time and patience, and I'm grateful I have the ability to step back and focus on my creativity."
