With a denim vest and a pair of shades, Justin Bieber showed off his swagger like a pro at the BET Awards on Sunday night.

Bieber walked the green carpet as he made his way into the ceremony. Was lucky lady Selena Gomez on his arm? Nope, manager Scooter Braun accompanied Bieber to the event, where he presented the award for best male hip-hop artist (which went to Kanye West). Bieber even flirted a bit with Nicki Minaj on stage!

Minaj, who was co-presenting with Bieber, joked with the young’un when he said: “So next year I’ll be 18. What’s up?” Nicki volleyed by asking if he was allowed to drive yet, and also if he thought he could handle her curves. Not missing a beat, Bieber — smiling widely — said “Yes I can!” Watch it below:

On Twitter, Bieber even joked about the bogus death rumors spreading around the web on Sunday about Nicki, saying:  “@NICKIMINAJ see u at the #BETawards later. glad we get to prove to the world we are still alive. lol. #loverumors. #nickilives”
