Christie’s auction house is selling a 30-year-old nude photo of singer Madonna.  The photo could sell for at least $10,000. 

The full frontal image showing a completely naked Madonna with a very hairy bush was taken by Lee Friedlander and appeared in Playboy in 1985.  Madonna was a 20-year-old dancer in 1979 struggling to make ends meet when she answered Friedlander’s newspaper ad seeking a nude model. Friedlander sold six photos from the shoot to Playboy, and the photo on auction is "maybe the most explicit one." 

Madonna earned only a $25 modeling fee for the photos.  Hopefully she used it to buy a nice bikini wax.
