Bought By Collector
Who knew that rolling around in bed nekkid for a photographer could be so profitable?
What a blast from the past — a photo of Madonna sans clothes, taken in 1990, fetched nearly $24,000 at a New York salesroom!
An anonymous collector bought the black-and-white photograph depicting Madge in bed — hardly covered by a sheet — smoking a cigarette for a mind-blowing $23,750! That's approximately three times its estimated worth.
"Madonna was posing for a number of photographers at the time this was taken in the 1990s when she was in her early 30s.
"She was going through a phase of having bleach blonde hair and heavy, dark eye makeup that gave her a dramatic look — and of course she has a gorgeous body," stated Judith Eurich, who works at Bonhams (the salesroom that sold the photo).
So, ladies, the lesson here is this: Be proud of your birthday suit and keep them naked photos close at hand. You just never know when an opportunity comes a-knocking… Right?
There ye have it. Opinions?
