Naomi Campbell's Eye of Horus house

This ish is crazy!! Supermodel Naomi Campbell just recieved the sickest house I have seen in quite some time. Her Russian billionaire boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin, gave her a 25-room, 5-lounge eco-friendly retreat home for her birthday. From the aerial view, you can see that the Turkish island home that rests on Isla Playa de Cleopatra is in the shape of the Eye of Horus. (via NecoleBitchie) Check out more pics after the jump

$5 fee to use your debit card

Bank of America has obviously lost their damn mind. SMH. Starting January 2012 BOA will begin charging customers $5/month to use their debit card. The only occurs for transactions involving purchases. People who only use their card for ATM transactions will not be charged. JPMorgan Chase tested charging a $5 ATM fee for non-network customers in Illinois in July, a plan they ultimately abandoned. Citigroup announced earlier this month that it would charge customers a $10 monthly fee if their account had a balance below $1,500 . Well congrats Bank of America customers...they will be sucking you for $60 a year now. SMH

NWA: The Movie

Famed yet controversial rap group NWA (Niggas With Attitude) is coming to the silver screen. Ice Cube, member of NWA) is set to a producer for the film through New Line Cinema. I am definitely intrigued and will be going to see this movie. N.W.A came to the scene in 1986 with original group members Arabian Prince, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E,  Ice   Cube , and MC Ren. Their debut album  “Straight Outta Compton”  marked the start of the new gangsta rap era as the production and social awareness in their lyrics were revolutionary within the genre. In 1991 the group would come out with one more album and separate soon after. After member Eazy-E dies from complications with AIDS in 1995 group members agreed that no reunion would be the same without Eazy. (FreddyO )

Alicia Keys - A Place Of My Own (NEW SONG)

This past weekend was the iHeart Radio Music Festival at the MGM in Las Vegas. It brought out the likes of Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Usher, Nicki Minaj, and more. Alicia Keys was amongst the many performers, and she used that as the perfect opportunity to debut a new song, "A Place Of My Own". I am a huge Alicia Keys fan, but the song hasnt grown on me yet, so I need to give it a few more listens with fresh ears. She does sound a little hoarse so I cant wait to hear the song once its recorded and mastered. Check out the live performance.

Oreo flavored tea bags

I was browsing Complex and came across what I think its possibly the greatest invention since sliced bread, the oreo tea bag. " The  Oreo Crumb Case,  a  tea bag enclosure for your Oreo crumbs , meant for the crumbs left behind at the bottom of a box of Oreos. Instead of throwing them away, now you can sprinkle them in the tea bag, zip shut, and place in your milk." SOURCE That is crazy!! This is a great idea for children and adults who are crazy about drinking milk. If this takes off and is in stores I will def let you guys know where to get it.

Famous Death Row last meals requests

One of the perks (if you wanna call it that) of the death penalty if your final meal. You can choose whatever you want in the world and the jail will provide it for you. People often ask for their favorite foods. But there are often some strange requests also. Thanks to  Lawrence Brewer,  the state of Texas has now banned all future last meal requests. September 21, 2011 Brewer was executed by lethal injected for the death of James Byrd Jr. He ordered a huge outlandish meal consisting of  two chicken fried steaks, a triple bacon cheeseburger, a bowl of fried okra, a cheese omelette, barbeque, fajitas, pizza and peanut butter fudge with crushed peanuts . That is crazy!!!  Check out these famous last meal requests after the jump.

Im going to leave my comments and opinions to myself.

Another Scarface movie in the works

Universal Pictures is developing a new version of  Scarface , the title first released in 1932 and then turned into the iconic 1983 film that starred Al Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana.  The film is not intended to be a remake or a sequel. It will take the common elements of the first two films: an outsider, an immigrant, barges his way into the criminal establishment in pursuit of a twisted version of the American dream, becoming a kingpin through a campaign of ruthlessness and violent ambition.

My Reaction: Troy Davis Executed

Troy Davis was injected with a 3 part cocktail at 10:53pm EST and declared dead at 11:08pm EST  in the death chamber at Georgia Diagnostic and statistics prison in Jackson, Georgia.    His last words were: 'I'd like to address the MacPhail family. Let you know, despite the situation you are in, I'm not the one who personally killed your son, your father, your brother. I am innocent. 'The incident that happened that night is not my fault. I did not have a gun. All I can ask ... is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can finally see the truth.' Davis then asked his family and friends 'to continue to fight this fight.' He added: 'For those about to take my life, God have mercy on your souls. And may God bless your souls.' Check out my reaction and my thoughts on Troy Davis execution after the jump.  Feel free to leave comments.
