Screaming teenage girls, some who waited the better part of a day, greeted Justin Bieber with more screams and some tears as the teen pop star arrived on the red carpet Wednesday night (December 18) in Los Angeles for the premiere of his new film, "Justin Bieber's Believe."
The film's world premiere took on a bit of teen age drama after Bieber recently told a Los Angeles radio station that he would retire after the release of his next album.
SOUNDBITE Bieber fan, Lisa Ohio, of Los Angeles, California, saying (English):
"Oh my God, I would cry. But, still I have his music and his albums. But, I don't want him to retire. I love you Justin!!!"
For the record, Bieber's manager Scott "Scooter" Braun confirmed to Reuters that the singer was joking about his early retirement plans.

"Oh, no, he said in the interview that he was kidding two seconds later. Next year he is just taking a break to just make music and relax and take time to himself. It's the first time since he was 12."
The singer is very busy these days with the recent release of his new album "Journals" and the upcoming release of his new concert movie.
