Although sources initially claimed that he was joking, the next day his manager Scooter Braun told Ryan Seacrest, "I'm telling him after this movie, I want him to take next year off and just take a break and he can still live in the studio and work on the next album, which is what he wants to do, but I just want him to take some time to himself, so he can have that time alone 'cause he's been working since he was 12 years old."
