One day after Justin Bieber tweeted that he was “officially retiring” from the music business, a documentary about the work-weary 19-year-old landed in theaters with a thud.

Justin Bieber’s Believe opened on Christmas Day with $1.25 million in sales, ranking 14th at the box office, according to the Wall Street Journal. His previous concert film, Never Say Never, made $12 million on its opening day.

The troubled release comes after the singer cryptically tweeted about his retirement, which was followed moments later by a cryptic reassurance that he would be “here forever.”
