Bieber wanted to quit music after paternity scandal

Justin Bieber contemplated quitting music last year after he was sensationally accused of fathering a fan's baby.

The pop star made headlines in November 2011 when Mariah Yeater falsely claimed Bieber had impregnated her during a backstage romp at one of his concerts in Los Angeles in 2010.

Bieber vehemently denied the claims and even agreed to take a DNA test to put an end to the speculation, before Yeater backtracked.

He now admits the scandal was the most trying moment of his career to date.

The singer tells Britain's Fabulous magazine, "At the beginning of it all I was in Florida, away from my friends and family and I was pretty sad.

"I got to the point where I thought, 'I don't want to do this. I just want to be normal.' It was difficult because I'd never gone through anything like that."

Bieber credits his mentor Usher with helping him put the experience behind him, adding, "Usher was like, 'Prepare to have this for the rest of your career because it's not going to stop.' He's gone through some stuff and most artists go through their fair share of bull. That was just my first time."

Bieber has even forgiven Yeater for the allegations, insisting, "I feel sorry for her more than anything."

PLEASE is there anyone else out there that gets this gut feeling that Beiber is or at one time was a female before posing as or becoming a male? He just looks so much like a girl trying to pose as a boy - he does not appear to have any masculine facial hair, his face, ears, nose, mouth and hands and the size of his body, especially head, neck and shoulders, skeletally and in every single way, look exactly like a female. I don't mean in anyway to insult or to insinuate that I am an expert on this, I don't mean to sound heartless or cruel - sexuality is someone's own business - but I don't like dishonesty -  don't like the feeling that I'm being played, or lied to in a really big way - if I'm right Beiber is making millions off of foolish little girls all over the world and that bugs me - I swear that every single time I see a photo of Beiber or see him and hear  him sing or speak on TV - I get a strong gut feeling that he is, in fact,  a female - or maybe born both and chose one - but right now, he has us all really fooled. Have you seen masculine young females? That is exactly what he seems to be....a girl imitating a guy - and that bothers me that all his little female fans don't realize they are being lied to by someone masquerading as a male....anyone else out there agree with me?

Boo-hoo-hoo...BOO-hoo-hoo...BOOOOOO-HOOOO-HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!  I'm crying because it was just a false alarm.  Somebody please abduct this kid and make him disappear for good.  I'll pay YOU, but you also have to take the Kardashians and Snackie or whatever her name is.

Damn, we were that close to be rid of Gayber.  Maybe his boyfriend can come out and expose him for the pos he is.  The kid can't sing worth a damn, and kids are too stupid to even realize that.

Anything the media throws to the kids, they think its all good.
