Female celebrities have always turned to Hugh Hefner and his Playboy Magazine to help keep, or raise, their status with the rest of the world. Many of the aspiring models, actresses, reality stars and everyone else who has yet to reach the pinnacle of stardom has had no fear in exposing all their goods for the world to see (think the Kim Kardashian type).
However the A-lister who is trying to reignite their diminishing stardom has always been less willing to reveal all their nooks and crannies. After all – most had some type of dignity they were trying to keep in tact. So what happens when you have a failing A-lister with absolutely no dignity or self-respect that decides to pose for Playboy? You get the world excited and buzzing for that muff shot.
Lindsay Lohan is the perfect example of this situation happening. The world has been on their feet just waiting for the muff shot to be delivered in HD magazine quality. And why wouldn’t the world make the assumption that she was really going to bare all? She flashes her crotch constantly while going to parties. Lohan has already done the Marilyn Monroe topless recreation thing for New York Magazine. She has no self respect or dignity left.
But as the pictures were leaked on to the internet weeks before the magazine was set to release, Lindsay Lohan would disappoint us again. It appears Playboy has paid close to 1 million dollars to recreate a less classy, plainer, generic photo shoot of her New York Magazine spread. The biggest disappointment of it all? No pink taco was on the platter.
Playboy Magazine even went out of the way to remove all of her actual characteristics that would make this photo opportunity unique. Lindsay’s body is photoshopped and shaped beyond recognition. Her natural and unique hair color was turned blond (I bet you’ve never seen a blond in Playboy before), her dirty rat tattoos that gave her the hooker-next-door sexuality were covered up and even most of her freckles were brushed out. In essence, Playboy took a very sexual individual and turned her into the common boring model we are used to seeing in everyday spreads.
From a business standpoint I am very impressed Lindsay Lohan and her team for negotiating these terms. It’s not every day you can get someone to pay you 1 million dollars for pictures you already took for free.
All that being said – I am still going to go out and purchase the Lindsay Lohan Playboy issue. I want it nearby so I can have her sign it when she’s begging on the street in 5 years.
As usual the Lindsay Lohan Playboy pictures attached are NSFW – so browse safely my friends.
