Sales of the January/February issue of Playboy featuring Lindsay Lohan are going viral all across America and on the Internet – and breaking all sales records in the process. Say what you like about Lindsay Lohan but the girl definitely has a lucrative future in porn. Looks like Hugh Hefner knew what he was doing when he convinced Lindsay to take a million dollars to do a Marilyn Monroe inspired spread. Vendors are already ordering more mags in massive quantities.
A source told TMZ that major cities including New York and Los Angeles – along with cities which don’t usually order more copies – have already asked for extra magazines to meet the insane demand.
On Friday the issue was greeted with less than great enthusiasm by critics and haters – people jealous of Lindsay no doubt. Adult blog editor Lux Alptraum told FoxNews: ‘Despite Playboy’s hype, there was nothing particularly shocking or new about this shoot. While these shots may have been slightly closer to full frontal than Lindsay’s previous shots, they weren’t actually full frontal; there was also nothing particularly new about Lindsay dressing up as Marilyn Monroe.’
Playmate of the Year 2010 Hope Dworaczyk chimed in to TMZ: ‘I saw that spread… and I was not impressed.’
Hope threw in a nasty shot aimed at Lindsay’s body saying: ‘I just feel like if I would have known I was doing a Playboy shoot, I would have worked out more maybe.’
Well folks – critics were wrong and Lindsay in on top again and Playboy has the sales to prove it. Playboy was in serious need of a popular Christmas boost – as its circulation declined by over 1,000,000 last year going down from 2.6 million to 1.5 million.
Lindsay is doing her part – like a good centerfold should – and is on Twitter to encourage people to buy the magazine.
