Justin Bieber spent Christmas Eve tweeting and perhaps distressing his loyal Belieber fan base.
In a series of tweets, he either was retiring or in our lives forever, take your pick. It went like this:
1. "My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring."
2. "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."
3. "Be kind loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ Merry Christmas IM HERE FOREVER."
Which is it?
Bieber started the retirement talk last week, first on an L.A. radio show and then at the premiere of his film "Believe," according to ExtraTV.com. His reps are saying he is just going to take a break after releasing his new album, the entertainment website said.
Early Wednesday on Twitter, the singer was all about promoting his new movie, which opened Christmas Day, and wishing fans a Merry Christmas by sharing tunes on Instagram.
According to Billboard.com, "Believe," like the singer's previous documentary, "Never Say Never," combines concert footage (the production value upped significantly since 2010), interviews with Bieber's inner circle and family members and video from the singer's earliest days of touring.
The film is directed by Jon Chu, who told The Hollywood Reporter, "Justin is very open about where he's at and what's going on. Sometimes he makes excuses and you can see through it and then he'll fess up to it right after. All those little things are what make him a kid that is like your nephew or your cousin and I think that's a compelling thing to see: to see him not as an object for us to judge, harp on and destroy, but somebody who we have responsibility for because we ultimately put him there."
Miley Cyrus behaving naughty isn't anything new these days, but according to an unprintable tweet, someone else was misbehaving when they released her racy video, "Adore You," on Christmas, the day before its scheduled premiere.
Billboard.com said the video was leaked on the Internet a day early. After calling out the unnamed culprit, Cyrus tweeted, "Alllllll good! Keep smiling :)."
When Fergie says of motherhood, "I'm still trying to find my footing and balance it all," she is being figurative and literal.
The Black Eyed Peas singer, who welcomed son Axl with husband Josh Duhamel in August, tells InTouch magazine, "I'm wearing lower heels when I hold my son -- it's definitely more comfortable." She also said that she's altered her trademark stiletto manicure. "I've softened the point."
In an InTouch story titled "I'll Choose Motherhood Over Fame Any Day," the winner of eight Grammys also says that she's reveling in her latest role. "I think all new moms can relate to that," she said.
