Quantcast

FROM NOTORIOUS TO NEKKID?

Will Lil’ Kim Join Katarina Witt, Farrah Fawcett And Darva Conger?
Rapper Lil' Kim might be taking it all off, Conger-style, for Playboy.

Rap's sexiest Queen Bee, whose recent album cover and promotional photos have steamed up more than one pair of glasses around this office, confirmed that she has met with Hugh Hefner's men's magazine to discuss the possibility of posing nude, the New York Post reports.

"Yeah, they came to me and we talked about it," Kim said Thursday (8/17) from Los Angeles, where she's taping a performance for Sunday's Source Magazine Awards. "I can't really say I will or I won't right now… We'll see what happens. I'm just really focusing right now on pushing my album."

According to the Post, the negotiations have been ongoing for three months with Kim seeking a "major six-figure deal—and possibly more" for a cover story and nude layout.

The only snag in the negotiations might be Lil' Kim's Christian faith, which might prevent the rapper from doing a particularly steamy photo spread.

"She has a very strong spiritual side to her," said her lawyer Kenny Meiselas, who has represented (gotta reprazent!) former Playboy pinups Pamela Anderson and Naomi Campbell. "She's indicated she wants to make sure it's tastefully done and consistent with her spirituality."

For those unfamiliar with her music, Lil' Kim's new album features songs such as "How Many Licks" and "Suck My Dick." In the past she has busted out such spiritual rhymes as, "I used to be scared of the dick/Now I throw lips to the shit/Handle it like a real bitch" and "If you ain't lickin' no clit, we don't want it."

"They showed her a book of tasteful layouts, and they will give her approval of all photos," Meiselas said of the venerable men's magazine. "We haven't finalized the deal yet, but if she does it she said she wanted to get David LaChapelle to take the pictures. She really likes his stuff and he shot her for the cover of her new album, ‘Notorious K.I.M.'"

"She doesn't need the money," Meiselas added. "She'll only do it if the photos, the royalties and everything else is right."
