Sssexy couple!

Selena Gomez interviewed her beau during MTV's VMA pre-show Sunday night - but Justin Bieber didn't come alone! 

"I have a snake," the 17-year-old said. 

"Stop, I know!" Gomez, 19, squealed.

"My snake's name is Johnson," Bieber told his squeamish girlfriend.

So what was the Biebs wearing? "I have red pants and cheetah shoes," he said. 

"Alright, so now you're up for Best Male Video -- against Eminem [and] Bruno Mars," Gomez said. "Do you feel a little nervous?" 

"I'm just excited to be in a category with such amazing people," Bieber said. "I'm just happy to be here."

Gomez asked the Never Say Never star if he was excited about Jay-Z and Kanye West "rumored to be performing" at Sunday's show. "I'm very excited," he said. And what about Beyonce's performance? "I'm excited to see Beyonce, too," he admitted.

"Well good," Gomez said. "Thank you so much for hanging out, babe!"
