Justin Bieber Will Do Double Duty on "Saturday Night Live", by Hosting and Musical Guest


"Saturday Night Live"
has booked JUSTIN BIEBER to host and be the musical guest on the February 9th episode.  He has appeared on "SNL" before, but he's never hosted.

Justin was the musical guest back in April of 2010, and he made a cameo last year, in the 100th Digital Short.  (You can revisit that on

"Voice" coach and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine will host "SNL" the week before, on January 26th.  Kendrick Lamar will be the musical guest.  NEXT weekend, Jennifer Lawrence from "Hunger Games" will host, and The Lumineers will perform.  There isn't a new episode this weekend.

Speaking of Justin, JAMES FRANCO posted a video of himself mocking Justin.  It's set to Justin's song "Boyfriend", but it doesn't copy the actual video.  James does his own thing, while wearing a Justin-esque wig and baseball cap.  James posted it on his WhoSay account, and then deleted it.  Of course nothing vanishes from the Internet, so you can see it here or you can find it on YouTube, here.  It's pretty amusing.



Meanwhile, the paparazzi asked marijuana aficionado TOMMY CHONG what he thought of the photos that allegedly show Justin smoking pot.

Tommy said, "I knew [Justin] was smoking before he knew it.  Because of his music.  Because of his dancing.  The guy is a phenom.  He's good!  It's not just his looks.  It's his talent.  And you don't get talent like that by drinking alcohol.  The herb, man!  The herb!"  (Here's video.  Actually, it seems like Tommy may be baked in the video, or maybe he's just PERMANENTLY baked.)
