Justin Bieber won't quit mu­sic

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Justin Bieber will record new mu­sic. Al­though the 23-year-old mu­si­cian re­cently axed the re­main­der of his 'Pur­pose' world tour in or­der to re­port­edly "reded­i­cate his life to Christ" and fo­cus on his re­li­gion, he has in­sisted that his faith won't stop him from work­ing on new ma­te­rial. A source told TMZ that "mu­sic has al­ways been a ma­jor re­lease for Justin and he's con­stantly in and out of stu­dios work­ing on new tunes". He also plans to re­turn to tour­ing but will not em­bark on such a lengthy world tour like 'Pur­pose' as it left him ex­hausted. Pre­vi­ously, Hill­song Church pas­tor Carl Lentz de­scribed Justin as a "good Chris­tian", and quashed spec­u­la­tion the singer is paid to at­tend church events, as he in­sisted the star is sim­ply us­ing his faith to guide him­self through new chap­ters in his life. He said: "We don't pay him to at­tend. He comes on his own. "I think that Justin is a good Chris­tian. I don't think his prob­lems are be­hind him, but we all have to deal with other stuff to come. "His re­la­tion­ship with Je­sus is chang­ing his life daily. It is one of those things where you never re­ally get it, it takes a while to keep grow­ing as a per­son. Ev­ery day he is get­ting older, and with each chap­ter comes new growth... This is what con­fer­ence is all about. "Ev­ery­one here would buy a ticket and be a part of it. He feels like it is a big part of his year." Mean­while, Justin's tour can­cel­la­tion was con­firmed last week via a post up­loaded to his web­site. The state­ment read: "Due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances, Justin Bieber will can­cel the re­main­der of the Pur­pose World Tour con­certs. Justin loves his fans and hates to dis­ap­point them. He thanks his fans for the in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence of the Pur­pose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grate­ful to have shared that ex­pe­ri­ence with his cast and crew for over 150 suc­cess­ful shows across 6 con­ti­nents dur­ing this run. How­ever, af­ter care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion he has de­cided he will not be per­form­ing any fur­ther dates. Tickets will be re­funded at point of pur­chase."
