Bring on the joint jokes!

Nothing is off-limits when Justin Bieber hosts "Saturday Night Live" Feb. 9 - not even chides about the photos that surfaced recently of the teen singer smoking pot, TMZ.com reported.

Sources connected with NBC told TMZ that Bieber's team "has declared nothing off-limits," and that Bieber himself "has told producers to push him as far as they want." Bieber will also be the musical guest.

Last weekend, TMZ published photos that apparently showed the 18-year-old teen idol getting high Jan. 2 inside a California hotel room with pals including bad-boy rapper Lil Twist. The photos were taken just a day after a paparazzo was killed while trying to snap photos of Bieber.

After the images made their way onto the Internet, Bieber reached out to his legions of Beliebers, tweeting: "Everyday learning and growing. Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up."

"I never want to let u down. And ... thank u."
