Nude Photo of Madonna on Christie's Auction Block Really Needs a Good Waxing..**UPDATE**

I'm in the midst of soaking my eyeballs in my famous solution of boiling bleach, having just soiled them by looking at Madonna's hairy, um, NESS. Oh. My. God. I refuse to show the photo itself. Feel free to see if for yourself on the Christie's website:
Your gag reflex has been duly warned.

NEW YORK (AP) — A nude photo of Madonna, taken before erotic songs and risque costumes catapulted her to superstardom, is expected to sell for at least $10,000, Christie's auction house says.
Madonna, then known as Madonna Louise Ciccone, may have earned as little as $25 for the 1979 modeling session.
The raw, full frontal black-and-white image, taken by Lee Friedlander, appeared in Playboy in 1985 and is to be auctioned Feb. 12. Madonna was a 20-year-old dancer trying to make ends meet when she answered Friedlander's newspaper ad seeking a nude model, said Matthieu Humery, head of Christie's photography department.
Humery said this week that six photos from the shoot were sold to Playboy and the one up for auction is "maybe the most explicit one."

I think the nice folks at Louis Vuitton paid her around $25 to spread her legs (which are thankfully clothed) for their new ad campaign, too. And worth every nickel, I might add.

Oh Madonna. CLOSE 'em!

That was FUNNY - i REALLY enjoyed that - if you look close she's even got hairy legs. Thanks for the moment of shocked hilarity you just gave me!

Christine: As Managing Editor of this Blog, it was my duty to enlarge the photo. Oh, the things I do for my readers...I'm going to get my prescription for penicillin now; I hope it's not too late.
