It's official: Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen sell their Brentwood mansion to Dr. Dre for $40 million! LA

Rap musician and producer Dr. Dre shelled out $40 million for Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's Brentwood, CA. mansion, according to published reports. The New England Patriots quarterback and his supermodel wife plan to move into their new custom digs in the Boston area. The home was originally listed for $50 million, but Dre negotiated a steep discount. The couple spent $11.75 million for the land and had the mansion built to their specifications by architect Richard Landry. The Los Angeles Times reported that "the sale became official today, with Dr. Dre spending some of the money he received in the $3 billion sale of Beats Electronics to Apple.". The 13,890 square foot mansion boasts 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, a center hall, a library/study, a gym, and a sauna. The four acres of grounds contain waterfalls, ponds, an infinity pool, gardens and pathways and a moat that runs alongside the mansion.

    A loyal reader emailed me about these pics from a Harper's Bazaar magazine fashion spread featuring Naomi Campbell. The reader asked if I thought the images were racist. She was particularly annoyed with the image of Naomi Campbell playing double dutch with monkeys while a white man (a hunter watching his prey?) looks on.

    She wrote: "Can you see a white supermodel jumping rope with monkeys in the jungle?"

    My initial response is, of course the images are racist. Vogue magazine pulled this same stunt with LeBron James and supermodel Gisele Bundchen on its cover in a pose reminiscent of King Kong and Ann Darrow.

    Controversy sells and the ultimate purpose of these magazines is to grab the readers eye so they can move magazines off the racks. It's a shame that celebs like Naomi Campbell and LeBron let themselves be used in this degrading manner. Or maybe they just don't care.
