EXPERT: Lindsay Lohan Was Still Worth $1 Million, Even After The Photo Leak.

Why Playboy Wins Even After The Lindsay Lohan Photos Were Leaked.

Playboy Wins Even After The Lindsay Lohan Photos Were Leaked.

Ask around the Playboy offices and you’ll get varying opinions about whether the worldwide spread of Lindsay Lohan’s magazine pictorial is a good thing or a bad thing. It’s true, some people are freaking out, since they had expected a big rush of sales and had ordered more than their standard number of issues to accomodate the sales.

A source in the marketing world (not specifically associated with the Playboy issue) reminds them to calm down, seeing a huge silver lining, and the potential for even more sales.

“Sure, it could mean that fewer people buy the magazine, but it could go the other way too. The truth is, we live in a world where a good portion of people would wait until the issue came out and the pictures were online after the fact anyway. What matters is… people are talking about Playboy! This story is all over the place. The estimated one million dollars could never buy this level of publicity. Consider that a 30 second Super Bowl ad costs around 2.6 million. Now, with the leak, blogs, newspapers and even mainstream television media are reporting in advance of the issue. They paid Lindsay an estimated 1 million… I think they’re getting their money’s worth already.”

Any time a big name agrees to do a pictorial for the magazine, the accompanying buzz is often more powerful than the photos themselves. Look back at how many times you’ve heard of a magazine ‘obtaining’ revealing old photos of a celebrity – often the pics themselves were underwhelming. It happened to Vanna White.

Then there is the Vanessa Williams example. Think back to an issue of Penthouse you remember. That’s probably the only one. Not only is it a collector’s item now, but the issue itself was a branding dream. The silver lining? Vanessa Williams, who was dethroned from her Miss America title over the photographs, remains (arguably) the single most recognized celebrity who has ever held the title. Hopefully Lindsay Lohan has most of her scandal behind her. The photos are being received as fairly sophisticated. And some people may just want to own a copy based on Lohan’s star power alone. This could still be a collector or movie fan’s dream issue.

“There will be equity in having this issue both if she makes a great comeback someday, or, sad but true, if she doesnt.”

Playboy was expected to release the Lindsay Lohan issue on December 15th… but in the age of technology, it is nearly impossible to keep such a buzzworthy issue under wraps.

Fox News reports that copies of the photos: “were either hacked or stolen from the magazine and uploaded to a file-sharing website based in Russia.”

The expression ‘it’s a small world’ has never been truer since the dawn of the technological age. Worldmags.net, a digital magazine clearinghouse based out of the Ukraine apparently made the article and 10 accompanying photos available for purchase through a file storage service.

My source also points out that some people will still not look at the photos online, or won’t look at them with the same level of interest as they will the  magazine. “It’s often difficult for people to look at this content easily at the office or even at home. It’s just like hiding the magazine from your mom or your wife! Some people will be afraid to look at work, and some people will not want their wives to know they’re looking. Those people can go buy the magazine and hide it under their mattress,” he jokes. “I’m sure some people at Playboy are irritated. But they should be seeing a very bright side to this situation.”

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
