Christmas has come a few days early for Justin Bieber haterz: The man-boy "bitch banger" announced yesterday that he plans to retire from the music biz after his latest album drops so he can focus more on sleeping with South American prostitutes.

"Um, I’m actually, I’m retiring man, I’m retiring," Biebs told LA's Power 106, adding that he's "just going to take some time. I think I’m probably going to quit music."

Journals is scheduled to hit Sam Goody stores everywhere on December 23.

Though Bieber hasn't said a word on the matter since, and his reps aren't talking either, TMZ says it spoke to a source in "Bieber's camp" who insisted he was just joking.

E! News also got the same response from an unnamed source, and noted that Bieber made a similar threat in 2012 but was just being a dirty tease.

To quote Miracle on 34th Street: I beliebe. I beliebe. It's silly, but I beliebe.
