Bieber 'retiring' from music

Justin Bieber says he's retiring from music.

The 19-year-old pop star shot to fame in 2009 with his debut album My World.

But during an interview on Tuesday with US radio station Power 106 he said he was calling it quits.

"Um, I'm actually retiring, man," Bieber said.

A video of the sit-down interview has since been obtained by E! News.

A spokesperson for Bieber has declined to comment.

Bieber has been the subject of scathing tabloid reports for several months amid allegations of reckless driving and other bad boy behaviour.

On Tuesday morning, Bieber arrived at the radio station in "a giant cloud of suspicious smoke".

The 19-year-old pop star has been accused of smoking marijuana throughout the year.

And X17 Online has captured video footage of his arrival that seems to confirm the drug use rumours.
