Hold your horses, Beliebers.

Like most of you, we were simply stunned by the “All That Matters” singer’s tweet on Tuesday night when he wrote that he’ll be taking a definite break from his booming music career. Seriously, just after he released five new songs!

But before you start referring to him as the Grinch, know that your favorite pop star was simply joking. He went back on Twitter less than an hour later to calm his panicking fans, explaining:

“The media talks a lot about me. They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I’m never leaving you. Being a belieber is a lifestyle.”

He went on to say:

“Be kind loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ.”

Finally, he declared:

“Merry Christmas  IM HERE FOREVER.”

Well, there you have it folks. A source also confirms to Gossip Cop that Bieber “isn’t going anywhere,” in case you need the added assurance.

Just “Believe”!
