They must be paying those kids on Glee very well!

Jenna Ushkowitz splashed out $50,000 on a sexy image of champagne-soaked lovers, taken by celebrity photographer Tyler Shields.

“These young celebrities buy my work because it’s an investment. The value has increased considerably since I started taking them,” Shields tells exclusively.

“In addition they are very supportive of my work and that’s why they take part in it too. But the most important reason they buy it is that they like my art and for me that’s the biggest compliment of all.”
