Justin Bieber Posts New Song Clips On Instagram A Day After Retiring
Just hours after announcing his official retirement from music, Justin Bieber posted several sound clips of himself singing some new songs to his Instagram page, calling them a "Christmas present for #beliebers."
The singer posted a message to his fans on Christmas Eve to announce that he's hanging it up effective immediately.
"My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring," he wrote. "The media talks a lot about me.They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I'm never leaving you, being a belieber is a lifestyle.
"Be kind loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ Merry Christmas IM HERE FOREVER"
The 19-year-old sang parts of "U Smile," "Confident" and "Swap It Out" with a camera trained on his blinds and floor.
Bieber also posted an image of himself with little brother Jaxon, his dad Jeremy, and a friends making a snowman.
"Snowy christmas," he wrote.
Last week Bieber told a Los Angeles DJ that his plan was to retire after releasing his new album, "Complete My Journals," which is only available via iTunes for a two-week period beginning December 24.
Bieber told Power 106 DJ Big Boy that when the album was released he planned to call it quits.
"New album ... uh ... I'm actually retiring, man," he said. "I'm retiring... yeah."
Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, has been running damage control since the radio interview, playing down the comments and reiterating that Bieber merely has plans to have a quiet 2014.
If Bieber's really going out, he's going out with a bang. In addition to his limited album release, the singer just released new concert documentary "Believe," which hit theaters on Christmas Day.
