All Justin Bieber needs is a beauty and a beat break? The Biebs appears to have delivered a very un-merry Christmas to his fans this year as he confirms on Twitter that he is in fact retiring. Perhaps he'll soon be telling kids to get off his lawn?

Justin got his fans in a tizzy earlier this month by telling an L.A. radio station that he is quitting music after his new album. There was much discussion about whether this was just a publicity stunt or whether he really was done with singing at the ripe old age of 19.

Now, Justin  whose Believe movie hits theaters today  is again adding fuel to the rumors by taking to Twitter to confirm his retirement.

"My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring," Justin tweets on December 24. Looks like someone is ready for those early-bird dinner specials.

So what are we to make of this? Justin follows that tweet up with two more to inform his fans that he'll always be around. "The media talks a lot about me," he tweets. "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 [and] loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ," Justin adds. "Merry Christmas IM HERE FOREVER."

Got that? Because we don't. So is he here forever or is he retiring? A source had previously stated that Justin's initial retirement claim was just a joke, but now that Justin is repeating it on Twitter, it seems that he is pretty serious about it. Right?

Do you think Justin is really retiring? And are you hoping he's dunzo for good?
