Coffee Talk: N. Campbell Received 'Dirty-Looking Stones'
Here's what's in our iced caramel lattes this morning: Naomi Campbell took the stand in the trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor. She said she did receive some "dirty looking stones." Mary J. Blige sold 60,000 units of her My Life fragrance on HSN in six hours. Plus, Shaquille O'neal signs with the Boston Celtics, and Kanye West's only Twitter friend does not want to be followed.

Kanye West randomly chose to follow one person — Steven Holmes — on Twitter. Too bad Holmes does not want to be the Louis Vuitton-don’s friend. Since West began following the British Nottingham University student, Holmes has turned down interviews from media outlets from all over the world.
“This has become completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention. I’m just a normal person,” he tweeted. [Marquee]
