R&B singer Chris Brown showed up smiling at the Grammy Awards show today, saying he was just a little banged up after crashing his car into a wall on the eve of the annual music industry awards.

''Little bit of bumps, I'm good though,'' Brown, 23, dressed in a white Lanvin suit, told E! News on the red carpet.

Brown crashed his Porsche into a wall in Beverly Hills on Saturday (local time) and told police he was trying to elude aggressive paparazzi.''I'll get another one,'' Brown, laughing, told E! News. ''Insurance is good.''

''Paparazzi tend to get out of hand. It's all good, though. No injuries,'' he added.

Brown's Fortune was nominated for best urban contemporary album at the Grammys, but Frank Ocean walked off with the award.

The crash came almost exactly four years after Brown assaulted his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, the night before the awards show in 2009.

Rihanna and Brown have recently rekindled their relationship, but the pair walked the red carpet separately.

Rihanna won a Grammy for Best Short Form Video for her hit We Found Love and performed during the awards show.

Brown pleaded guilty in 2009 to beating and punching Rihanna and is still on probation. Last week, a Los Angeles judge ordered a new report on the community service that Brown was told to carry out as part of his sentence after prosecutors alleged that he had cut corners.
