Bieber's big tease

Justin Bieber says he's retiring soon at the ripe old age of 19, but his camp says not so fast, sport.

Justin BieberJustin Bieber shocked his fans yesterday by announcing he is just about done with all this fame and fortune business — but is he for real?

"After the new album, uh, I'm actually, uh, I'm retiring man, I'm retiring," Bieber said.

"I'm retiring, yeah. I'm taking a... I'm just gonna take some time. I think I'm probably gonna quit music."

He later clarified, "I want my music to grow as an artist and I'm taking a step out, I want my music to mature."

The members of the "All That Matters" singer's camp scrambled to cover their butts and keep their paychecks coming, insisting to multiple media outlets that Bieber was totally just kidding and his next album, which is set for an iTunes release on Dec. 23, is far from his last.

One source told E! News, "Of course it's not true."

TMZ spoke to another insider, who refuted the retirement claims, saying, "The kid's got ambition."
