Christmas comes early -- Justin Bieber to "retire"

Love the headline of the article, which I borrowed for this thread:
https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en...c-9012243.html

So sad........

I would be happy if I never heard his name again or saw his face.

This is right up there with Brian the dog's death and McDonalds' putting 3D printers in every restaurant; and slightly less beliebable than Amazon delivering via drone quadcopters.

Can he die next?

Maybe that is too mean... can he disappear next? Perhaps go into one of his favorite Brazilian brothels and not return?

He's probably planning his comeback tour or setting up a lounge act in Vegas right now.

Nachoman does not approve of his reputation.
But honestly Nachoman would not recognize any of his songs.

No, trust me, you were definitely lying! With the exception of his horrible "Baby, Baby, Baby" song, I couldn't name any songs.

You know, I have never actually heard any of his stuff.

Now when one of you jokers replies with a YouTube link, I have no intention of clicking on it.

All of that auto-tune stuff (except Daft Punk) sounds alike to me.

Yeah, I don't know what you call a 30 second backstage encounter that results in a paternity suit.

I found it amusing that he found it necessary to pay for a little nookie while hundreds of girls were standing outside of the hotel and would be happy to accommodate his desires. Then I remembered how old the girls were.
