The “Best” Thing That Ever Happen To Usher

Usher shares a few things about his taste for adventure, footwear and his best biggest mistake.


Best RECIPE: Tuscan egg toast—basically a fancier version of eggs in a basket—that I make for my two sons on their birthdays. I cut out the center of the bread, fry an egg in the middle, then drizzle it with truffle oil and sprinkle with herbes de Provence and salt and pepper.

Best ADVENTURE: Anything with a major adrenaline rush: Skydiving, zip-lining, surfing, bungee jumping, wakeboarding—you name it and I’ve tired it. Usher

Best ADVICE: “If you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready.” James Brown told me that right before we performed together at the Grammys in 2005.

Best COLLECTION: My dress shoes. I shined my grandfather’s as a kid, so I gained an appreciation at an early age for really nice italian leather shoes. Usher-Nylon-Guys2

Best FAMILY TRADITION: Reunions, or what I call red-cup celebration: Everybody’s hanging out on the lawn, drinking out of those plastic cups, eating fried chicken, and dancing to loud old-school music. Sometimes the simpler the celebration is, the better.

Best MISTAKE: Getting married at 28. Most people probably think I regret it since I ended up getting divorced, but it helped me learn that sometimes I think I know more than I actually do.tumblr_lerscbsf2z1qcl3po
