Playgirl Magazine Passed on Kanye West Nude Photos
Usually outlets would be clamoring to shell out big bucks nude photos of a celebrity, but when it comes to Kanye West, even a nudey magazine decided to pass. Playgirl Magazine revealed that they failed to snatch up photos of West in the buff, due to the hefty price tag. "It would have cost us $100,000, and we said no," a spokesperson for the magazine told E! Online. Apparently second guessing their decision, the magazine now wishes they hadn't turned the photos down. "We should have said yes."
Nude photos of West, which he sent to different women via MySpace, hit the 'Net last month. The images were being shopped around to several tabloids, and featured reportedly left "very little to the imagination." West later owned up to taking the pictures during an interview with Funkmaster Flex.
"Have you heard the first line of 'Runaway?" He said, referencing the track in which he talks about sending out a photo of his private parts. "I only rap reality. I went to the Internet. They had the link, I went to it. Man, you cannot imagine how disappointed I was that I got cut off."
West's knack for making headlines is about to get X-rated as word has it that a porn film inspired by his public snafu with singer Taylor Swift last year, is in the works.
