A Page Six item that is intriguing, both for its news and the apparently ghetto process of bidding on $4.1 million photos:
BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie got top dollar for the first pictures of baby Shiloh but they made the weekly celeb glossies work for it. All the weekly magazine editors were summoned to the offices of the Getty photo agency at Canal and Varick late Saturday night. “We were sequestered into separate and un-air-conditioned offices,” said one. “The photos were shown to us around 10 p.m. to midnight, and then we had to submit bids by 6 a.m. Sunday morning. No one got any sleep at all, as it was a manic game of phone-tag to top each other’s bids. I’m convinced it was Brangie’s revenge on the weekly magazines.” The pictures went to People for $4.1 million.
Un-air-conditioned. Kind of like Africa.
