Us Weekly’s Janice Min On Celebrity Baby Pictures
February 22, 2008 – Janice Min of Us Weekly magazine visited ‘Today’ on Wednesday (February 20) to talks about the popularity of celebrity baby pictures and the big bucks magazines are willing to pay for them. It was reported that People magazine is shelling out $6 million for the U.S. rights to publish images of Jennifer Lopez’s twins, while this week’s People features Christina Aguilera on the cover with her newborn son Max. Min said that because advertising is done in advance, it isn’t necessarily a financial payoff for the mags, and suggested Angelina Jolie will command the biggest bucks when she gives birth later this year.
