“I’m going to start working on a new album and a tour for 2015. I took the last year off and I’m excited to get back to work.” – Justin Bieber
If you’re not a fan that follows the teen sensation closely, you may have wondered throughout 2014, “has Justin Bieber disappeared?”
The answer to that question is no…yes…sort of. After the mass success of his Believe tour, and his short stop in R&B-ville with “Journals,” Biebs took a LONG overdue break. Since the age of 12, he’s been on the pursuit of success, never truly stopping the work to enjoy the riches. So to those who think he has vanished, become irrelevant or washed up during this short period of time… you’re wrong! He’s just enjoying everything he has worked so incredibly hard for.
Play time is coming to a rest, and Bieber is making his return with an ultimate BANG! After teasing and hinting at possible collaborations with Calvin Klein for months on end, we were finally introduced to Justin Bieber as the new face of Calvin Klein earlier this week. Can we just say, WOW! Not that we ever expect anything less than perfection from the young Canadian.
With such a significant break from music, this is nothing but a strategical way to move back into the spotlight. As desirable and adored as he is, there are certain tactics involved in coming back from a musical slumber. Beyoncé did it out of the blue- she released a full album overnight. However, Bieber is making his comeback in a smart and knowledgeable way.
To ensure maximum coverage and success, one must place themselves in the spotlight first before spreading their wings for all to see! His Calvin Klein spread is only the beginning of his comeback plan this year, we predict. As his adoring fans, we’re now seated comfortably ready to be on the receiving end of the endless flow of material coming our way! Just imagine the quantity and quality of music he’s got resting under his belt after a year of silence!?
As we ride along on this train to his return, we piece together the clues Biebs has been throwing our way. Remember back in October we all asked ourself, “What in the world are Justin Bieber and Karl Lagerfeld doing together?” Here’s your answer: They were working on an exclusive shoot and interview for V magazine, which will hit stand on January 15.
In this exclusive interview, Bieber told Lagerfeld, “Of course, I’m still young. I still have so many personal and professional goals I want to achieve. I want to keep creating music for my fans. One day I hope to make strides into movies and fashion as well. I want to share my creativity with the world.”
Our favourite part of the interview however, and perhaps yours as well, is when Karl asks Bieber what his next steps will be in his career? To which he answered with…
“I’m going to start working on a new album and a tour for 2015. I took the last year off and I’m excited to get back to work.”
Yes, yes, yes! There you have it Beliebers, he’s back and he’s coming in full throttle! Prepare your posters and your concert-ticket-buying skills; new music and a tour is fast on it’s way to you, just hang in there. Bieber is BACK!
