Lindsay Lohan caused a bit of commotion last week when she appeared in New York Magazine. Her nude spread, that recreated the famous final photo shoot of Marilyn Monroe, drew millions of curious visitors who briefly crashed the site on the day the photos were published. We all know that celebs are usually paid major dollars for exclusive shoots with publications, but do you know how much LL was paid for the "honor" of channeling her idol? To find out just read more
Nada. Zip. Photographer Ben Stern was paid his usual fee but LL did the shoot for free. The magazine's site averages one million page views per day, but the photo shoot alone brought in 34 million views during the two days after the spread was revealed. And while the magazine keeps advertising revenue numbers to themselves, it's estimated that they made over $500,000 in two days from the banner ads running above the LL slideshow. NY mag sure knows how to shake the most out of their money maker — they strategically posted outtakes from the shoot on their site yesterday.
