Beware: Notorious lead foot Justin Bieber is speeding through hotel lobbies on his newest set of wheels. The singer was spotted May 27 zipping down the halls of the Montage Beverly Hills on an IO Hawk, an $1,800 Segway-like contraption with a top speed of 6.2 mph. Bieber’s joyride came just as guests were emerging from the Television Academy Honors.

"I was like, 'Hey, Justin!'" says Miles Brown, 9-year-old star of ABC’s Black-ish. "I wanted to see if he remembered me." Bieber did (the two met while filming 2013 doc Justin Bieber’s Believe) and posed for a photo. Nearby was TV grandpa Laurence Fishburne, who has previously defined "black-ish" as "two words: Justin Bieber … but he doesn’t get shot by the police. He gets a police escort home."
