After early reports surfaced that the magazine, which hit newsstands last week, wasn’t selling so hot, TMZ reported that her retro-themed shoot is starting to sell out. Sources say retailers in cities like Los Angeles and New York have had to order more issues, and subscriptions to the Playboy website have increased since the issue became available.
The news seems to have pleased head honcho Hugh Hefner, who confirmed the report on Twitter. “The Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records,” he wrote on Sunday.
Last week, Lohan took to Twitter and opened up about the nude pictorial she had done in the style of Marilyn Monroe’s classic spreads. “Playboy on stands now!” she said. “I was so nervous! I hope people like it and pick up a copy!!! ….xoxo.”
In the January/February issue, Lohan also talks about her ongoing problems. “Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more,” she told the magazine. “My stubbornness at 18 and 19 years old got in the way. During the past five years, I’ve learned that time flies faster than you think, and because you only live once, you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable.”
