Say what you like about Pete Davidson, but the man is not afraid of making himself the butt(hole eyes) of the joke as he brilliantly mocked his life and scandals while hosting Saturday Night Live.

The comedian, 29, was previously a cast member of SNL but returned as host this week - and addressed all of his past headlines, from his much-publicized feud with Kanye West, his infamous BDE, and even the time he crashed his car into a house earlier this year.

Quite literally nothing was off limits - and it was all pink and Barbie-themed, of course.

Pete rewrote the song 'I'm Just Ken' from the recent Greta Gerwig-directed Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken, creating the song 'I'm Just Pete'.

The skit begins with Pete excitedly returning to the SNL offices holding a large cake with the words "excited for a fun week!" iced on the top.

However, he finds the offices empty and stumbles upon two colleagues talking about him in a meeting room, questioning why he's returning as host when his work outside of the show has been so unsuccessful.

Pete then channels his inner Ken to sing about his troubles in a frankly pretty spectacular musical number.

Dressing up as Ken - albeit one that looks like a 'methhead' - Pete proudly sang: "I'm just Pete! Anywhere else, I'd be a three, but I guess I'm hot for dudes in comedy, 'cause it's an ugly industry."

The show-stealing number came with a host of other versions of Ken and an elaborate dance routine - of course - and continued: "I'm just Pete, looking like a methhead on the street. People online still call me 'Skete,' because of a guy whose name I can't say legally."

A photo of Kanye West - who coined the nickname Skete while Pete was dating Ye's estranged wife Kim Kardashian - quickly flashed up on the screen for a fraction of a second.

Pete also addressed his legendary BDE - aka 'big d**k energy', a term his ex Ariana Grande came up with - and his indiscrete dating life, which has seen him date a string of beautiful women, despite apparently being a 'three' out of 10.

He also didn't shy away from the darker topics, addressing his struggles with mental illness and telling the crowd he is "on drugs" and that "out of the blue, like three times a year, when you least expect it, I go to rehab."

Even the car crash Pete had at the start of the year, in which he allegedly crashed his vehicle into a house with his then-girlfriend Chase Sui Wonders in the passenger seat, wasn't off-limits in the sketch.

At the end of the musical number, Pete can be seen driving Barbie's convertible with her in the front seat, smashing straight into the Dream House.

As the alarm starts blaring, Pete exclaims: "Aw, not again!"

The Bupkis star had left the show after eight seasons, having been the youngest cast member for the majority of his time there, having joined SNL at just 20 years old.

He had originally been meant to host last season on May 6, but the 48th season of the show was forced to be cut short due to the Writers Guild of America strike, which recently reached a resolution.
