Justin Bieber jean jacket sneakers jeans studio

We missed seeing Justin Bieber walk the red carpet at the MTV VMA's Thursday night, but looks like he had other plans in the recording studio.

The 18-year-old pop star stepped out of the LA studio wearing an oversized denim jacket, MC Hammer-style pants and hi top black sneakers.

We're lovin' how even with that baby face, Biebs is trying his best to look rough and tough.

Sexy denim dude!
