Nude Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy issue fails to sell

Washington: Retailers have revealed that Lindsay Lohan’s issue of Playboy Magazine has failed to attract readers from buying the much-talked about issue.

Not many people seem interested in seeing Lohan’s intensely air-brushed impersonation of Marilyn Monroe in glossy print, as no one has bought the 25-year-old actress’ Playboy issue despite being out on sale on newsstands and gas stations from New York to Philadelphia.

Since the photos were leaked, the response to the spread, for which Playboy paid a reported 1 million dollars, were lukewarm across the board.

“I’m not surprised at all. Despite Playboy’s hype, there was nothing particularly shocking or new about this shoot,” Fox News quoted Lux Alptraum, editor of Fleshbot.com as saying.

“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.

“I thought the shots were really boring and didn’t really live up to the promises Playboy had made.

“If they’d actually gotten full frontal shots of Lindsay, or come up with a fresher, more interesting concept, there might have been more demand for the photos,” Alptraum added.

The entire roll-out for the Lohan Playboy spread has been mired in disaster.

After a travel snafu this week, the ‘Mean Girls’ star was unable to make it back from a Hawaiian vacation in order to do her single interview for the shoot with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, and now that the magazine has hit newsstands without a ton of fan fare, it appears Lohan won’t be giving any interviews about the spread.

Playboy did not return e-mails for comment on the pace of sales since the issue hit stands.
