Nude Photo Of Madonna Sells For $37,500

We know times are tough and people will do anything to raise the rent money, but Madonna seems to have it all figured out.

On Thursday, a naked photograph of the singer, taken when she was only twenty years old, sold at a New York auction for over $37,000. Not bad work, if you can get it.

The singer, at that time known as Madonna Louise Ciccone, was a struggling dancer when she answered a newspaper advertisement looking for a nude model.

The photo was first seen in Playboy Magazine in 1979, and was one of six from the photo shoot that appeared in the magazine; the other five were sold in an auction in 2003 bringing in more than $7,000.

Another photograph sold Thursday for $18,750. In the photo, also seen in Playboy in the 1980s, the singer is wearing sports lingerie, has curly blond hair and a sexy facial expression.

Her last music project was heard in the smash hit movie "The Wrestler" starring Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood. She wrote and performed the song "Jump" on the film's soundtrack.
