A nude picture of Madonna taken in 1979 when she was just 20 years old has gone on auction at Christies. It’s said to be the most explicit shot of the pop icon/dancer/singer ever taken, and is valued at $10-15,000.
An American photographer, Lee Friedlander, took the black and white snap for a series of nudes he was working on. I like it, very natural, raw beauty. Madonna was paid £17 for her work that day, which in 1979 was enough for a new pair of bell bottoms, an ounce of weed, and Al Pacino’s sex-change operation.
Here’s some more gratuitous Madonna nudity.
