Watch out, Alan Greenspan! Who could have guessed that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is an armchair economist? Or, for that matter, a hobbyist Nostradamus?
When the Wall Street Journal asked Snooki for her take on the current economic climate, she provided this extrapolative “money quote” (haha!):
The economy is really scary because 2012 is coming. I feel like the first thing that’s going to happen… is a blackout and then everyone freaks out and the world goes crazy. So hopefully, Obama will take care [of the economy] before 2012.
But never mind the end of the world: Snooki adds that she has remained vigilantly frugal with her Jersey Shore earnings in anticipation of her fame’s eventual conclusion. “I bought me and my mom a car but that’s about it. I haven’t really spent on anything yet,” she said. “I’m saving up it up for when this is all over, with Jersey Shore and the spin-off, I have enough money to just take care of my family.”
