Nude Madonna Photo Goes Up for Auction

A full frontal nude photo of Madonna is going up for auction at Christie's auction house in New York on February 12th.

The 30 year-old photo was taken by Lee Friedlander and appeared in Playboy in 1985. Madonna was strapped for cash at the time and responded to Lee's ad seeking a nude model.

She made just $25 from the photo and it's now expected to fetch over $10,000.

Playboy published six photos from the shoot in 1985, though the one going on sale is "maybe the most explicit one," says Matthieu Humery, head of Christie's photography department.

Wonder if Madonna will snag up the photo? Madonna wasn't too happy about the photo leak back in the 80's, but who knows how she feels about them now.
