When most of us were 8 years old, for Christmas, we hoped to get things like a digital camera to snap selfies with friends; clothes and accessories to explore our sense of style; and maybe an iPod (or Walkman) to listen to our favorite songs on repeat. However, this youngest generation is on a roll with some of the most extravagant gifts one could ever fathom — eve grown adults.
On Thursday (Dec. 3), Tyrese Gibson announced that he bought his 8-year-old daughter, Shayla, her very own island for Christmas. (Now, let’s all say, “What?!” in unison.) The singer/songwriter and actor revealed the big news when Entertainment Tonight asked him to share the “most lavish or over-the-top gift” he’s ever received or gifted.
“Well, I just bought my daughter an island,” he said. “Can’t say [where]. She knows all about it and the island is called Love Island. I’ll be putting it up on my Facebook soon.”
As always, we’re interested in your thoughts. Sound off in the comments and share your opinion. Also, have your parents ever gifted you with something so extravagant like Tyrese. If so, what was it?
