Naked 'Nirvana baby' still chasing dollars

via. CNN.

Anybody who knows music has seen the Nirvana "Nevermind" album cover. (def. one of the best albums of my short lifetime)

Apparently, the baby on the cover, now 17 years later... Is still getting paid to party and rein act the famous album cover.

Not sure if I respect the guy or if I think he's a complete lame?? I think its a little of both. LoL!

(CNN) -- All apologies, but here we are now, 17 years after Nirvana's breakthrough album irreversibly changed music, and the naked baby pictured on its cover is still chasing dollars.

Spencer Elden, the underwater infant pursuing a dollar bill on the cover of 1991's "Nevermind" is doing swimmingly these days, having graduated a year early from a Los Angeles-area high school.

Being the "Nirvana baby" -- as Elden calls himself -- has been profitable.

Now 17, Elden says he was paid $1,000 to re-enact the famous pool pose for photographers. Compare that to the original shoot which paid $200.

"Stuff happens like random cool situations where I get paid $500 just to go hang out," Elden said. "People just call me up and they're like, 'Hey you're the Nirvana baby, right? Well just come and swim in my pool and we'll give you some money.' " Read more about Elden and the 1991 photo shoot
