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.
