In celebrity news today, Madonna’s nude photo is to be auctioned off; Perez Hilton sings about kissing a girl; Former American Idol contestants Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood will perform at Grammy awards, as will the Jonas Brothers. They also hosted the Jonas Brothers Fan Family experience.
A Madonna nude photo is to be auctioned off at Christie’s auction house on February 12.
The nude Madonna picture was taken in 1979 for Playboy magazine. The photo was not published until 1985. In Playboy, there were 6 pictures published, and now this one explicit picture will be on auction. PEOPLE magazine reports that Madonna was a financially strapped 20-year-old dancer when she responded to photographer Lee Friedlander’s newspaper ad seeking a nude model. Madonna only received $25 for doing the nude photo shoot.
Perez Hilton sang the Katy Perry song “I Kissed a Girl.”
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton serenades us in his “I Kissed a Girl” performance wearing a Madonna shirt. The video, seen here, is definitely worth watching. I don’t think Perez Hilton would like kissing a girl or tasting her cherry chapstick, but the video is hilarious. Perez made the video for the CBS My Grammy moment contest.
Speaking of the Grammy awards…
Former American Idol contestants Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood will both perform at the Grammys on February 8. Both Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson are nominated to receive a Grammy this year, Acess Hollywood has reported.
The Jonas Brothers will also be performing at the Grammys. Be sure to set your TiVo to capture every minute of the Jonas Brothers. Jonas Brothers fans do not have to wait until the Grammy Awards to see them perform.
The Jonas Brothers will perform Monday night at the Barack Obama Kids Inauguration concert “We are the Future.” The show will air on the Disney channel at 8 p.m. eastern. Also joinging the Jonas Brothers will be Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus. The “We are the Future” concert will be hosted by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden.
