Sometimes the best way for a star to do "damage control" after even a minor scandal is just to make fun of himself.

As TMZ noted, Paris Hilton was on Saturday Night Live right after her sex tape was released, and Alec Baldwin dressed as a pilot on SNL to mock his own ousting from a plane.

Justin Bieber will host and perform on SNL on February 9, and Justin's team has reportedly told NBC that nothing is off limits. TMZ's sources say Justin actually told producers to push him as far as they want. Sounds like a green light for weed jokes — and probably for Selena Gomez references too. Maybe they'll even throw in a Taylor Swift joke, since she's single now too.

This won't be Justin's first trip to SNL. He performed in 2010 and hosted in 2011. Will you watch him next month?
