Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie sell photos of Shiloh for a lot

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have sold the first pictures of Shiloh to People magazine for a kidney punching $4.1 million, with all the money going to an unknown children’s charity. Magazine editors were told to meet at the offices of the Getty photo agency late Saturday night and each magazine went through a night long bidding war for the shots, which were taken by the family at their Namibian hideaway.

“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.”

I can appreciate the spectacle around this, but $4.1 million for a baby picture is a bit ridiculous considering all infants look exaxctly the same. The only way it’d be worth it is if Shiloh has a tail or three eyes or is Asian.

    4 Million for a glimpse at a hideously ugly baby is so not worth it. Especially a baby with it’s placenta still attached. Or maybe it’s not, I just felt like throwing that in.

  2. llllllllll

    How pathetic are the Naibians talking about making a National holiday for that over rated kid! Can you say KISS ASS!

  3. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    All I want for Christmas is for the baby to come out black.

  4. ARGH so they are whoring out their new kid… I know, I know, they are donating all the money to charity, but still… lame.

  5. llllllllll

    I don’t know about you but to me, Jolie has a weird shaped body from the waist down and her arms are long bony and super veiny!!!

    “Unknown Children’s charity”? Yeah, the Pitt Jolie Fund. If they were going to donate it why not have the Mag just write the check directly to the charity-You can bet the 4.1 mil is not all going to charity. I hate it when celeb want you to beleive that they are better than they are. Ahhhhhh

  7. Jacq

    So the SF paid $4.1M for the picture of the Cabbage Patch Kid? Suckers.

  8. mb12

    Is this the blind bidding? where you only get to bid once and highest bid wins? I’d be curious to know if this type of auction gets more money than the selling-a-house auction style.

    I don’t think babies are cute, they all look kinda pudgy

  9. Maybe they’ll sell him to a circus where he can be put on public display. Tickets could be expensive! Sorry, no Namibian currency accepted.

  10. 5 bucks says the cabbage patch kid is cuter than the real baby.

  11. honey

    Maybe Angie will run off with the black midget father of her baby and Brad will develop narcisistic rage and go become a Rhode Island state trooper.

  12. That’s kinda crazy that someone would pay that much for a freakin baby photo. Watch… that copy of People will be sold out. haha.

  13. Mr.K

    Having a baby in Africa, $6.83. Saving the children of the world, $4.1 million. Brad Pitt becoming the laughing stock of the planet, priceless!

  14. trulymadlydeeplytori

    i’d pay to see Angie’s horribly mutilated tummy from the C Section

  15. spatz

    wow. thats a lot. gwen and gavins baby photos only went for around 575,000 dollars to people magazine.

    theres no way a photo of this devils spawn is worth that much.

  16. Holy freaking god!

    At the very least it’s going to charity, but we expected that.

    Still, $4.1 million.

    ugh, celebrities are so vile. the cord is barely cut and they’re already using it as a prop. they should sell samples of Shiloh’s fecal matter on EBay, they’d probably sell like…hotcakes?

  18. downshine

    at least its going to charity. angelina and brad are totally mocking the weekly magazines by having them participate in a bidding war. and i’m laughing with them

  19. spatz

    youre laughing with them? HAH you wish. to them you are just a lowly peon like everyone else.

  20. Fisher55

    I heard Shiloh had to have a third arm removed yesterday…sucks to be born in a-freak-a

    HA HA! Right on!

    “But you said you’d eat whale blubber!”

    “Oh, she’ll be eating blubber allright, right after I free willy.”

  22. Doxes

    Has anyone else noticed that since Brad hooked up with Angelina he appears to be whipped in the extreme? When he was with Jennifer he was always the dominant one; now he’s always two feet behind Angelina and never gets a quote in print anymore.

    I bet she’s got a nice collar and leash that she makes him wear when they’re not in public. And maybe a muzzle.

  23. uncle_leo

    honey–come to think of it, I just saw Brad Pitt taking a dump on my lawn while reading my morning paper.

    I think I’ll scoop up the turd in a plastic bag and auction it off to the tabloids.

    $4.1 million; GOING ONCE!!

  24. uncle_leo

    #22–maybe a rhinestone studded genital cuff and a gimp mask.

  25. All credit to Michelle Collins for this one: how soon before the kids in the playground start calling the kid Piloh Shitt?

  26. jane's eyre

    She’s got his balls on lockdown in a kung-fu grip.

  27. lightandsweet

    Hey I don’t know if this is real or not but this was posted on another site:

    “Look, Shiloh, you’re not even a month old, and you’re already a whore!”

  29. jane's eyre

    27

    I doubt it is, since the article states that the pictures went to People, and as far as I can tell, H-e-l-l-o isn’t the way you spell that. Photoshop.

  30. Dr.Rokter

    #7 Hee, hee. That’s funny.

    This just shows how celebrities get special treatment. When I try to buy pictures of other people’s children I get “arrested” and go to “jail” and get told that sort of thing is “illegal”, “perverted” and “sickening”. Fuckin’ celebs.

  31. chryssy11

    I can’t wait to see them. This is exactly why I subscribed to People Magazine….every week…straight to my door…life is good.

    If those pics are real #27, she is adorable!

  32. lightandsweet

    31- yeah if they are real she is beautiful!

  33. frostedface

    unknown charity? – sounds a bit sus

  34. Dancer

    No offense to all of you negative posters, but would you rather a paparazzi got a photo and sold it to a mag for $4.1 million? I’d much rather see the money go to charity and especially a children’s charity. Angie and Brad are very committed to their roles in UNHCR and Angelina donates a third of her income.

  35. IFuckingHateYou

    Shiloh is black and came out with a bone through her nose, but Brad is too stupid to realize that he ain’t the father.
    Angie told him he must have some slave blood in him from his ancestors.

  36. purplepuppy

    Jeez don’t put any pressure on the kid or anything. Lil’ Shiloh has to save the world before she’s a week old. I’m glad it’s for a good cause, but it’s still putting a price on your kid’s head. Morons!

  37. Dancer

    You know everyone that is criticizing the selling of the pictures–the Jolie-Pitts basically had three choices: a) do nothing and let some scuzzy pap snap a pic and get wealthy, b) do a group photo like Paltrow does or c) do this and get some good out of it for charity. Oh yes, they could have done what Zeta-Jones did–keep the money! I realize I’m talking to very close-minded folks, but the way the photos were sold will end up generating over $20 million for children’s charities. And those of you who think Brad and Angie would keep the money, certainly don’t know this couple at all. Read her book “Notes from My Travels” (and don’t worry all funds go to the UN High Commission on Refuges)and you will see she is committed to helping children and those that can’t speak for themselves.

  38. JolieIsADiseaseRiddenBloodsuckingWhore

    Dancer, we have no proof that she donates a third of her income. She says she does, but she has said a lot of things that are lies. These two can’t hand a homeless guy $10 without issuing a press release. She doesn’t give a third of her income. Don’t be gullible.

    I hope that pic is real. People is going to be pissed!!!!! LMAO. It’s the spitting image of her brother. The angle is such that you can’t the third head.

  39. PapaHotNuts

    When my neighbor’s daughter turned 17, I offered him a case of Miller Lite and my “Old School” DVD to take pictures of his daughter- in the shower. I sure miss that DVD.

  40. JolieIsADiseaseRiddenBloodsuckingWhore

    OMG Dancer. I just read your other post and holy shit are you gullible. Why waste your time reading anything that bloodsucking homewrecker writes? If you’ve heard her speak, you know that her level of stupidity is amazing. Do you really think she writes her own books? She can’t even walk and chew gum at the same time. Seriously, have you ever seen her do it? Have you? Huh?

  41. JolieIsADiseaseRiddenBloodsuckingWhore

    And BTW, a week to startwhoring out the new kid. I thought that was a record, then I remembered it was only like 2 days before they whored out Zahara. These kids are truly blessed.

  42. tits_on_snack

    I hate it when people say “close-minded”.
    It’s CLOSED-MINDED. CLOSED. As in your mind is CLOSED to alternative ideas and points of view.
    Anyway. Babies all look the same. So basically they’re paying 4.1 million dollars for a photo of a wrinkled little yoda that looks the same as every other wrinkled little yoda.

  43. Dancer

    Well, I’m sorry you all feel she isn’t committed to what she does in terms of volunteer work. Read her book. It isn’t a great book, she isn’t a great writer or even a good writer, but she gets the point across. She has been doing this for six years. I’ve been to Africa several times and they need all the help emotionally, financially and physically people can give them. Angie is many things, but she does care. Everyone I know that has met her talks about what a genuine person she is and how committed she is to her causes. I’m not gullible, I’ve done my research. And like Oprah, Bono and Prince Harry–she endures a whole lot of criticism for trying to help third world countries. Whatever all these folks do to help Africa and downtrodden people across the world is more than most people do.
    Give her a chance and she might surprise you with her compassion and caring.

  44. faghag

    What’s the effing problem here? They’re going to be hounded anyway for the photos – this way they at least make some good come of it. I’m no fan of either of them and I’m secretly hoping the baby has Brad’s crater face and her old nose, but ragging on them for this is a stretch. So the sleazy tabloids have to cough up millions to a children’s charity. Ooooh – what an awful state of affairs.

  45. jane's eyre

    Angie, is that you? Shouldn’t you be looking for new ways to whore your baby out?

  46. Pepe Roni

    43 – STFU

    39 – funniest thing i’ve seen here in a while

  47. I hate how everyone just automatically thinks benevolent things when a celeb donates large sums of money to various charities. Can anyone say Tax Write-Off? And even if the money goes to a home for reuniting clitori with their vaginas, it’s still whoring the kid. So what if some evil photog waits around for a week getting bitten by tsetse flies and pissed on by orangutans for a snapshot – it’s a living. Might not be much of one, but how much inferior is it to standing in front of a camera, emoting and repeating lines for a gazillion dollars and in your spare time exchanging STDs?

  48. jane's eyre

    And I’m waiting for “that chance” for her to surprise me with her compassion and caring. Come on, Angie, how about tomorrow afternoon? I’m free.

  49. Punkin

    What they really need to do is stop worrying about the children in Africa and worry about the problems here. Like me. I need money.

  50. Pepe Roni

    If she were really benevolent, she’d be at a homeless shelter breast-feeding those less fortunate than us.

    Those have got to be some big lactating mams!!!
