Lindsay Lohan

Playboy Sales Are On Fire!

12/18/2011 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan definitely gave Playboy their money's worth ... because the issue is selling out all across the country ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, newsstands in major cities like New York and Los Angeles have had to re-order the issue multiple times. We're told Playboy is even getting re-orders from cities that usually never order more issues.

Our sources say Lindsay's appearance in the mag has also had an effect online as well ... where the mag has seen a huge increase in subscription sales to their online service,

If only her movies did this well ...

This site is a fraud. Never underestimate the stupidity of the American public.

Haters, know THIS, the only blog who reported lacklustre sales was Jo Piazza of Fox News, a few other other sites picked up her report. She contacted 2 gas stations early morning before anything was going on. Some investigation NOT.

Let me tell you something about Jo Piazza, she is a disgusting vile hater, she knows if she talks about Lindsay it will get her attention. She said in her blog a few weeks ago Lindsay should die. THATS the sort of reptile she is, she scrapes on the ******* of society.

I believe TMZ on this, not because of sources, but because so many people are tweeting about having bought Playboy for the first time and so many others are annoyed they can't buy a copy because its sold out.

Lindsay POWER!

Hi Julia,

TMZ really needs to name its sources and give some real numbers to be credible. Its Lindsay-related sources have an unfortunate habit of being just her mom or PR person...
I've seen stories before proclaiming spectacular sales in general (e.g., for Black Friday or Christmas sales), trumpeting an economic recovery, that were quietly reversed a few weeks later, buried deep in the Business section of the newspaper. So manipulation of sales figures for various purposes is common. To make sense of this case, for example, we need to know what is the typical sales pattern in December and also have to wait to see if the totals are actually different (i.e., if Hef's gamble paid off) or if her notoriety has just caused a change in when regular buyers buy the mag without a big change in buyers. Also are they buying the mag for other stuff in the issue? Should give Lindsay a morale boost regardless, but it might not mean much ultimately for her future. Too early to tell.

Why not name your source on this one TMZ?
I purposely checked out at least twenty-five newsstands in NYC yesterday and unless all the Playboy issues I saw collecting dust on the shelves throughout the city sold out this morning you guys are full of ****!

Who believes this?

Went on this morning and some dingbat who actually reads Fox News posted an article about how nobody is buying the LiLo edition of Playboy. Which I suppose is another example of how Fox News makes everything up as they go along.

Even if this is a BS story, Red Cloud will find a way to make it sound true.

Its only the factually challenged Fox News who reported lacklustre sales and Jo Piazza at that, a couple of blogs picked up her lame BS. Know who you are talking about before you quote them as a reliable source. Jo Piazza at Fox News? gimme a break, I'd rather believe the National Enquirer.

That's funny because other news outlets are saying that sales are flat & very disappointing. So who is right and who is wrong?

Check out the other side of the story:

BS! In fact, the DAILY MAIL is reporting the exact opposite. I will take the reporting of DM over TMZ ANYDAY!

FYI there are places you can go to find magazine stats and while you never really know the complete stats until the end of the month, the sales of her issue are lower than the sales of the previous two issues right after they were released. So...yeah....this story is complete BS.

Weird, considering several other sites (including actual news sites) are reporting the exact opposite. You're obviously talking to someone in her camp about this. Most of it doesn't even make sense. The photos were already leaked, when that happens, the sales are never all that great. People don't spend money on things they can see for free. I also seriously doubt they've seen a huge increase in their internet subscriptions. All her people do is lie, seems like you would be aware of that by now.
