Bieber made a brief appearance with reporters to shoot down rumors that his mom was buying him a home in L.A. as a birthday present.

"I think I might move back to Canada," he joked.

When asked about who he's like to collaborate with, he said, "I would like to work with… [five second pause]… I'm gonna think about that and get back to you!"

Of "Bieber Fever," he joked: "It's an epidemic. I'm not the one who made it up, so talk to my fans."

Where does he see himself in 10 years?

"I'm gonna celebrate the 10-year anniversary of you asking me that question. I'm just kidding. ... In 10 years, I see myself still doing music and still being musical and making good songs and pleasing my fans."

Bieber, Usher and Jaden Smith performed during the show.
