We’re always looking for the opportunity to write ourselves a good Justin Bieber story aren’t we? Fresh off the scandal of being labeled a pothead, it was announced that the Biebs will host the February 9th edition of Saturday Night Live pulling double duty as host and musical guest.
Bieber made some half-assed attempt at leaking the story in advance at Twitter but I’m just a bit too tired to really rifle through the guy’s tweets about why he misses Selena Gomez and marriage proposals from 14 year-olds to attempt to find it. You’re just going to have to trust me that it’s there somewhere amongst the puppies and rainbows.
This Tweet set off a trail of is he/isn’t he debates of webernet people wondering if it was going to happen. Though there will be haters, it does make sense to have the singer on the show from a ratings POV it’s a huge grab. He has appeared on the show in the past, most recently being the 100th Digital Short.
It also continues a mini trend this season of having musicians hosting the show. Bruno Mars already did it this past October and it was also just announced that Maroon 5/The Voice’s Adam Levine would host the January 26th episode (but not be the musical guest).
So the only question remains is, will Bieber be a good host? What do you think?
