Riding in style: Usher cruises the streets of Beverly Hills

He is known for his thrilling dance moves onstage but it appears that he is also quite the adrenaline junky in real life.
Usher rode his custom-made motorcycle along the sun-filled streets of Beverly Hills for a bit of retail therapy on Friday.
And the 34-year-old made sure to ride in style as he popped into Barney's New York for a bit of browsing.

Completing his outfit was a skullcap safety helmet and dark sunglasses.
Once Usher sated his interest at the expensive shop he hopped back onto his high-performance motorbike for some more adrenaline filled thrills on the open road.
The Yeah! singer could not have looked cooler in his risky getup - which provided little to no protection from the road rash of a potential spill.
His two-wheeled vehicle featured a bright orange frame and sticky road tires, ideal for zipping around the traffic clogged roadways of Los Angeles.

While the star spent a leisurely day on his motorbike he has had a rough time of late.
Usher's step-son with his ex-wife Tameke was killed last summer in a tragic accident when the jetski of a family friend went out of control.
Kile was only 11-years-old at the time of the accident, and was unable to recover from severe brain injuries sustained in the crash.
The child, who was on vacation with his father, Ryan Glover, was on an inflatable raft with an unidentified 15-year-old girl at the time of the accident.

Both children were airlifted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, but Kile never regained consciousness and died on July 21 last year.
Usher and Tameke, who divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage, were in the throes of a bitter custody battle over their sons Usher Raymond V, four, and Naviyd, three, before Kile's accident.
But they are understood to have put their differences aside in the wake of current events.

Meanwhile, the singer has kept himself busy with work, including a current stint as a coach on NBC's The Voice.
This is the pop singer's  first season on the coaches panel, alongside Shakira, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine.
He previously told the Today show: 'Of course, winning The Voice is ultimately the goal of the show.
'But really, preparing incredible entertainers is really what I'm all about.'

Their first meeting was over the phone, and as soon as she hung up the comedian thought they might get along. The fact that they did made filming that much more enjoyable.
'We've become quite good friends,' she said.
'I think there's no working that - either you hit it off like that or you don't. And we just happened to. Which made [filming] so ridiculously fun!'

Getting it cracking! Tom Cruise gets messy in a game of egg

He may be a Hollywood action hero but Tom Cruise certainly let his guard down for late night TV on Friday.
The 50-year-old actor played a game of egg roulette with Jimmy Fallon and lost.
Tom picked from an assortment of raw and boiled eggs for the gag, and found out soon in the game things were about to get really messy.

Tom and Jimmy took turns picking from a carton holding eight boiled eggs and four raw eggs and smashed their chosen egg against their head. The game ends when someone breaks two raw eggs on their head and loses.
Tom went first and promptly smashed a raw egg against his hair, prompting Fallon to double over in laughter.
'I told you I didn't have a good feeling about this, man,' Tom told Jimmy with a smile.
Jimmy went next and picked a hard-boiled egg.
Tom on his second pick again chose a raw egg and broke it against his head.

It wasn't the first time that Tom and Jimmy squared off.
The two went eye-to-eye last December in a Water War game, which is based on the card game War and includes lots of water.
The winner of each hand got to douse his opponent with a cup of water and the first to run out of cups won the right to blast the loser with a toy water cannon.
Tom won and thoroughly drenched Jimmy.
The actor has been making the talk show circuit lately to promote his new sci-film Oblivion.

He visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night and also took part in a skit.
Kimmel gave Cruise an acting challenge by having him deliver ridiculous lines in a dramatic overtone.
'Is there a way to get the soup and the salad?' Tom asked as he was illuminated on the couch with a spotlight.
The Top Gun actor ended the dramatic query with his patented muscle-flurrying jaw clench.
In his new movie, Tom plays Jack Harper, a former Marine commander, in the sci-fi flick set in a not-too-distant future of 2073.

Ashley Tisdale's fiery frock turned up the heat.
And yet the newly brunette actress seemed oblivious to the attention she was causing on Friday as she hit up a coffee shop in Toluca Lake, California with her beau Christopher French.
Ashley borrowed a look from the Bohemian by wearing a strappy orange-print summer dress that fell loosely around her figure.
