Man Mistakes Madonna Photo for Monroe
Imitation can be the sincerest form of confusion. So learned a Las Vegas man who alerted the media this week that he thought he had his hands on a rare photo of Marilyn Monroe posing nude as a hitchhiker. What he had was a famous photo of Madonna. The image of the Material Girl, who often cast herself as a sort of latter-day Monroe, appeared in "Sex", her 1992 book of risque photographs. In it, she posed in heels and handbag, with a cigarette in her mouth.
