It seems as if rumors that the latest Playboy Celebrity Cover proved to be unfounded. There seems to be very little interest in Lindsay Lohan‘s “Assets”. In fact, very few customers seem to have much interest, especially since the photos were leaked online last week, and were widely criticized as flat. The photo shoot has been described as an intensely air-brushed version of the photo shoot done of Marilyn Monroe, which appeared in Playboy in 1953.
Fox News sent a team on the streets from New York to Philadelphia trying to find out how much interest there was in the issue, and they reported the same answer at every stop.
“No one has bought it”
It seems as if the $1 million dollars that Hugh Hefner paid for the shoot might have just been a waste of time and money. Speaking exclusively to E! online, Hugh Hefner originally stated he didn’t even have any interest in photographing the troubled actress.
“It really came as a surprise to me,” Hefner told E! “I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and then it turned into something bigger than life. “I wasn’t quite sure where she was at in her life, obviously. It depends on whether it’s Tuesday or Thursday.”
Speaking to Perez Hilton, there seemed to be one celebrity who was really interested in purchasing the magazine and that was rap sensation 50 Cent. He told Perez he had not seen the spread online, but was really interested in seeing what Lindsay’s cooch looked like. He also waxed philosophically about why it is that when a woman strips for $1 she is called a stripper but when a celebreity does it for $1 Million it is called “art”
