LiLo is doing anything she can to make money these days, including stripping down and posing in Playboy, according to TMZ. She was initially offered $750K for the shoot but refused until the final asking price approached seven figures. Sources report that the shoot started over the weekend but Lindsay's rep has said, "I can neither confirm or deny at this time." It's not the first time the starlet has gotten naked in front of a camera. She posed nude for a 2008 photo shoot for New York Magazine imitating Marilyn Monroe and has bared her chest in other pictures, movies and music videos. Hopefully this chunk of change will get her through the new year.

Rapper Kid CuDi has found himself trapped on the downward slope of the rollercoaster that is his musical career, and it hasn’t even been six months since he dropped his highly anticipated first album Man on the Moon: The End of Day. In his most recent bout of misfortunes, the Cleveland emcee, his entourage, and several members of Britain’s NME magazine were held at gunpoint by the LAPD in transit after a photo shoot. The group was pulled over on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles where police officers surrounded the convoy with guns at the ready demanding their targets to, “keep your hands visible!” The entire group was then ordered to exit the vehicles and kneel on the ground where they were then put in handcuffs. However, after several moments of tense inquiry, every member of the group was released as the police realized they had detained the wrong party.
