It must be a holiday miracle!

Justin Bieber took to Twitter Tuesday night claiming that he’s “officially retiring” from his music career. Word spread like wildfire, and Christmas Eve was filled with many teens and tweens alike wondering whether the singer was bluffing or telling the truth.

But, almost immediately after tweeting out his retirement, Bieber followed up with a tweet that confirms that he is in fact not retiring and that he would “never leave.” He then wished his fans Merry Christmas, and told the world that he was here to stay “forever.” 

For the record, Bieber's documentary is set to come out today, so could this just be a mere publicity stunt? If so, it's safe to say that it's working. 

I guess Bieber fans are having a very Merry Christmas, knowing that they can still be Beliebers in the new year.
