Judging from the constant activity on the #BieberOnSNL trending topic, we’re not the only ones SUPER excited for Justin Bieber’s doubled-up Saturday Night Live stint as host AND musical guest tomorrow night. It’s not Bieber’s first go-around at Studio 8H. Justin was the musical guest for Tina Fey’s episode in 2010 (back when he was still rocking his signature “Bieber Hair”!!!) but was game enough to squeeze into a sketch of his own. Tomorrow night, though, The Biebs is putting on his big-boy pants (most likely of the sagging variety) for his first time hosting the whooooole show. Haven’t reached critical mass of dizzying excitement yet? Maybe these behind-the-scenes snaps of Justin in swaggy leather jackets from his bumper photoshoot and rehearsals will send you over the edge.
Bieber ups the swoon-worthy teen idol factor in a slick leather moto jacket. Mostly black, the edgy topper also features panels of gray gradient leather across the front of the jacket. He keeps the rest of his ensemble pretty simple with a white tee, gold watch, and two chains — one cross and one Jesus piece. As we expected, J. Biebs doesn’t pump the brakes on the fashion train just because he’s quote-unquote off-duty. Even in rehearsals, Justin keeps his leather close, pairing a black jacket with bright mustard-colored skinny jeans and crisp white high-tops. Obviously, we have to point out the stand-out accessory of this ensemble: Justin’s arrowless bow. With Valentine’s Day ubiquitously around the corner, we’re wondering whether this indicates that Biebsy might be playing Cupid in the upcoming episode. Justin in a giant adult diaper?? We can only hope for something so outrageous.
