Justin Bieber talks possible retirement: 'I need to figure myself out as man'

Justin Bieber may or may not have been joking when he went on L.A.’s Power106 on Monday and said that he was retiring. Even Justin doesn’t know, he said at the world premiere of "Believe" on Wednesday.

It sounds like Bieber‘s rumored retirement will be more like a quick break to focus on the most important people in his life — his family, namely his brother Jaxson, 4, and his sister Jazzy, 5.

“I wanna get to know my family more,” he told MTV News at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live. ”I’ve been away so much, I’ve missed a lot of great years with my brother and sister.”

As for his plans for next year, he said that in 2014 he’s focusing on “figure out myself as a man.” But don’t worry Beliebers, he said that includes “something special” for the fans.

So, does that mean he’s taking a break from music, or was that whole thing just a joke? He was straight-faced during the interview with the L.A. radio station, but fans weren’t sure if he was just kidding around-- and he's not sure either.

“I don’t know if that’s a joke,” he told MTV. “I don’t know. I don’t know.”
