Snippet of nude picture.
A nude photograph of Madonna was auctioned off for $37,500 Thursday at a Christie’s Art House auction.
The picture was expected to sell for $10,000 to $15,000. The 13-inch by 8 5/8-inch framed photograph was purchased over the phone by an anonymous bidder. (Think it was Madge?)
The graphic full frontal picture was one of several taken by American photographer Lee Friedlander in 1979. Madonna was about 20 years old and needed cash. Friedlander paid her $25 for the entire photo shoot.
Most of the pictures from the shoot were featured in Playboy magazine in 1985.

Madonna and reported boy toy, 22-year-old Jesus Luz are featured in March’s W magazine.
The magazine features a provocative 46-page portfolio taken by famed photographer Steven Klein.
The two first met on the shoot in December.
A source close to the singer tells Us Weekly that while they are not serious, “she is seeing where it goes.”
Says her pal, “She loves showing her ex that she can still get the youngest, hottest thing out there.”
Madonna has been granted temporary permission to move her two sons with ex Guy Ritchie to New York City.
The couple had lived in Ritchie’s native England during their 8-year marriage and finalized their divorce in November .
The UK Evening Standard reports the custody agreement will be made permanent within the next 14 days.
“Everything is going to be resolved in the next couple of weeks,” a source close to the negotiations told the newspaper. “Everything is going well. It’s pretty amicable at the moment. Things are progressing.”
Madonna relationship with Alex Rodriguez is reportedly back on. After rumors she had dumped A-Rod for 21 year-old Jesus Luz, she spent the weekend with A-Rod at the East Hampton home of Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld. The weekend getaway did little to sooth Madonna’s agitated state.
She is said to be fuming that untouched photos from her Hard Candy album cover shoot was leaked on the web. According Page Six source “Madonna called up the label screaming when the photos got out.”
Here are some untouched pics from Madonna‘s photo shoot for her Hard Candy album. The pictures were apparently leaked and Madonna was not too happy with them being released.
Also included is a picture of her and rumored boy toy, Jesus Luz, from a W magazine shoot.
The 50 year-old singer poses with bandages wrapped around her breasts and wrists, laced knee-high boots, and boxing gloves.
I think Madonna is getting too old to be posing for these half-naked photos. Do you agree or disagree?
Madonna’s new alleged boyfriend, Jesus Luz, is reportedly cashing in on his relationship with Madonna.
Madge’s current obsession, Brazilian male model Jesus Luz, 21 – whom she met on the South American wing of her Sticky & Sweet tour – is putting all of his eggs into the Material Mom’s basket and using her name and the resulting publicity to demand huge prices and build his career.
Brazilian spies told Glamurama.com.br, “All the modeling agencies came after him, but he chose Ford Models because [photographer and Madonna pal] Steven Klein had a talk with Katie Ford and convinced her that Jesus is, in fact, holy material.”
Sergio Mattos, the owner of 40 Graus Models and Luz’s former agent, says that after meeting Madonna, Jesus simply disappeared: “He stopped answering his phone, his mother quit her job . . . But I wish him the best. And now I have a new Jesus,” Mattos, who just signed a contract with Spanish model Jesus Perez, told the Web site. “This is a much better Jesus, and he’s not a fan of Madonna’s.”
Luz might be overestimating the value of his association with Madonna. “He was asking for some $135,000 a show. He did the same job last year for a mere $225,” said a Brazilian source. “A lot of people are contacting him but because he keeps raising his rates, they are changing their minds.” – Source
Well, who is surprised by this? What else would a 21 year-old want with Madonna?
