Life as a mom who has her hands full
According to the Associated Press, the first photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins were sold jointly to People Magazine and a British Tabloid for…ARE YOU BRACING YOURSELF…$14 million dollars!!! People magazine will release these expensive celebrity photos of twin babies Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon on Monday.The money will go to a foundation created by Pitt and Jolie that focuses on helping children around the world. The money the couple earned last time for pictures of their daughter Shiloh also went to a children’s charity.
So that got me thinking…what were other celebrity babies worth?
1. Jennifer Lopez and her twins: $6 million
2. Angelina Jolie and and son Pax: $2 million
3. Christina Aguilera and her son Max: ~$2 million
4. Nicole Richie and Harlow: $1 million
5. Gwen Stephani and Kingston: $575,000
6. Jamie Lynn Spears was paid $1 million the announcement
his summer ushered in a
Is it worth the price?
With millions of dollars being paid out every year to actors and actresses turnedand pop, the question remains…”Is it worth the price?” The large national magazines say YES! Vanity Fair who gained exclusive of Tom Cruise’s Suri Cruise saw sales increase 60% that edition. Luckily for Vanity Fair, they paid nothing for the and Tom and Kate got great publicity. No matter what the price, magazines are flying off the shelves. Maybe the fans like the chance to see their favorite turn into normal people, with spit up and drool on their shoulders. Maybe we just like seeing that their babies look no different from ours (despite the posh strollers and thousand dollar accessories).
In this era of greed and soaring prices, some celebrities, like Tom Cruise, are refusing to cash in, and that is a refreshing change. In 2002, Sarah Jessica Parker and herMatthew Broderick stunned the paparazzi when they exited the hospital and actually posed for cameras. With hundreds of snapping thousands of photos, no one picture was worth any real money. Instead of taking the coveted $1 million dollar of Wilke, the disappointed paparazzi found themselves taking everyone in town owned. Maybe more actors and actresses will surprise us this summer with their selflessness, but in I think it will be the price tags that continue to surprise us the most.
