Hip-hop royal Queen Latifah is learning how to perform tricks on motorbikes
- to impress men.
The CHICAGO star has been collecting bikes for years, despite the fact she
lost her brother in a motorbike accident in 1992.
But after getting on one for her new video and learning a few tricks,
She says, "It's dangerous, but there's no greater feeling than dropping
the hammer - our little slang term for hauling a**."
Her latest ride is a Suzuki GSX 1300R Hatabusa, and she's learning to
perform wheelies on it.
She adds, "When a guy sees you on a Booster his eyes go, 'Oh, s***!' He's
respecting you. I want to learn how to wheelie for three blocks.
"I take my bikes on tour. What I love most is that it's just me and the
road. It feels like freedom - nobody's mouth in your ear."
