Will Britney Spears bare all for Playboy? The mag is offering the curvy pop star a seven-figure fee to pose in the buff, says a source.
“Playboy is desperate to get her,” says the insider. “She’s this generation’s sex symbol.”
And, argues the source, she’s already done provocative poses for Esquire and Rolling Stone, “so why not the original girlie mag?”
Spears’ spokeswoman didn’t return calls.
When called for comment, a Playboy rep told The Scoop, “Britney is a beautiful young woman” but the magazine had no further comment.
Dress you up
Arnold Schwarzenegger is definitely bringing a little Hollywood to Sacramento.
The newly-installed governor raised eyebrows among some hard-nosed politicos when his office issued a press advisory that for his inauguration, the former action star would be wearing a grey Prada suit and his wife, Maria Shriver, would be dressed in Valentino. A contact number for the governor’s press office was included.
“They spent taxpayers’ money to give free publicity to Prada?” fumed one political insider. “What do they think this is, a red carpet?”
Hollywood stars frequently are loaned designer clothes in exchange for publicity, but calls to the governor’s office inquiring whether that was the case here — or whether the suit was merely plucked from Schwarzenegger’s well-appointed closet — were not returned. When The Scoop called Prada, a woman in the press office said she “believes” that the fashion house arranged for Schwarzenegger to wear the suit, but said she could not provide further info.
