Also, Snooki Got A New Tattoo

So yeah, that’s a leopard with wings wearing a crown. Does it have a beak? I don’t even know.

Here’s what Snooki had to say about it on her blog:

I haven’t mentioned or showed anyone besides Jionni this tattoo! I got this last week when we shot our final Jersey Shore reunion :( My fierce leopard tattoo. I wanted to get this because to me it represents being a strong independent woman, and obviously I love leopards/leopard print! The crown represents being a queen and being fabulous, and the wings represent everyone who has passed in my family. Anytime I can incorporate my loved ones who have passed, I do it! This tattoo also will always remind me of getting it while being in LA shooting our FINAL reunion of Jersey Shore. This tattoo was done by my one and only favorite artist in LA ,Bryce Oprandi, at the The Martlet Tattoo!

This is her sixth tattoo, and she said that every Monday, she’s going to be revealing another tattoo and the story behind it. And that’s how Monday just became my favorite day of the week.

What Is Snooki’s Least Favorite Word?

Let’s just get right down to it: it’s the C word. C-nt. See? It’s so bad that our advertisers don’t want us to use it. Everybody hates that word, it seems.

Here’s what Snooki said:

Ok, that’s fair, but I kind of love the word, to be honest. I like the way it sounds, and I like to have something extra intense to pull out if needed. I also like the way that, every time I say it, my BFF goes “ewwwww, stop, ugh,” because she feels the same way that Snooki feels. It’s not because she’s offended on some feminist level, it’s because she just really hates the way it sounds. Isn’t that neat?

And while this discussion has definitely happened before, I always think it’s interesting to hear what people think about the word. Some people think it’s horrible, and that to use it is harmful to all people who possess a literal vagina. Some people think that it’s something to reclaim, like some awful slur that they need to take back. But I kind of just really like the way it sounds.

Thoughts?

Love It or Leave It: Hey, Snooki, What’s Up, Girl?

I can’t even believe it, guys. Do you know that it’s been over a month since we last talked about Snooki? Do you remember the times when a day or two couldn’t go by without some crazy Snooki story dominating the news? Gosh. I guess she really would rather talk politics than get wasted these days.

And in all honesty? There’s really no story here, either—I just wanted to know what you thought about her outfit. It’s way, way better than some other things that she’s worn in the past (like this):

Awful, right? So awful that there’s actually a whole gallery of Snooki’s worst outfits down there, but hey. What do you think about today? Are you feeling Snooki ’12?

Snooki Would Rather Talk Politics Than Get Wasted These Days

But hey, before we get started, I’d like to take back that thing I said about her new hair. I like it. Before, I was just sort of taken aback because of the whole thing with the extensions, but now that we’re seeing the finished project, I think it works. Right?

Ok, now let’s review some quotes from Snooki‘s interview with Anderson Cooper:

On her new life: “I am having a glass of wine talking about politics. It’s way different. Like, so, ‘Who are you voting for?’ I mean me and my friends are like, ‘What are we saying?’ We are getting so old.”

On having a kid: “Having a kid changes your life. Before, I was like, ‘I want to go out. Let’s go to Vegas.’ After having a kid, it’s just like, ‘Oh my god, there’s so much more to life than just going out and having a good time.’ ”

On going out: “Once a month, I go out with my girlfriends because if you don’t go out when you’re a new mom, you’re just going to freak out,” she explains. “You need time for yourself. It’s always so busy with the baby. Sometimes you get stressed or frustrated, so you just need your own time.”

On changing diapers: “I actually love [it]. Even when they are like poopy and gross, it’s fun. He pooped on my hand once and that was awesome. … I have fun doing everything with him.”

That’s actually kind of boring, right? That’s what makes it interesting! We’re so used to hearing Snooki talk about whale sperm and kitty litter and just being a mess in general that it’s so weird to hear her sound like a normal person. But it makes me happy, because she obviously really, really loves being a mom, and I want Snooki to be so very happy.

But hey, was that part about the diapers weird? Moms, do you think getting pooped on is awesome? Can we discuss that part?

Look, Snooki Has New Hair!

I hate it. Oh my god, this is so dumb. Why, Snooki? Why would you do this to yourself? You’ve been looking so good lately, and then you go and do this to yourself. I don’t like the red on you, sorry, but I just don’t. If you love it, then I’m happy for you, but darker hair just looks so awesome on you. And it’s way too long and it just doesn’t look good.

But ok, wait. She’s getting extensions, right? Is that what’s happening here? I’ve had those cheap clip-in extensions once, but I’ve never seen the process of putting in these legit expensive ones. So is her hair going to end up this long, or are the extensions just laying like this while they’re in the process of being put in? And that’s her real hair, that short bit that’s sticking out?

Regardless, I just really don’t like the red. What do you guys think about our dear Snookers?

Stars Without Makeup: Snooki Again!

I’m sorry, I just love Snooki so much. I love how much she loves that precious baby, I love how happy she looks, and I love that she doesn’t give a shit about not having a face full of makeup and a body covered in self tanner anymore. I think this is all just so wonderful, and I love it.

And isn’t it just so much fun to see how different some people look without makeup? It is, right? Just think about what Snooki looked like when we first saw her. That huge hair, the deep orange tone of her skin. All that makeup. Did you ever think we would get to where we are today with this girl?

Probably just disregard all this if, for some reason, you still hate her. Instead of fawning over her, you can take this time to go grow a soul or something.

Snooki Talks About Losing Her Baby Weight, Doesn’t Understand What Baby Weight Is

I know Sarah just talked about this a few days ago, but seriously, how good is Snooki looking these days? I think she’s always been cute, but when she got pregnant, she stopped tanning, and it seems like she’s started using more natural makeup (natural for Snooki, of course), and honestly, I think she’s super hot right now.

Unfortunately, Snooki doesn’t agree with me. She just did an interview with In Touch, and she says she’s still got a ways to go:

“I really don’t like how I look,” the Jersey Shore star tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. “When you have a baby you get stretch marks, and it’s all loose skin. Everything needs to get back to where it was.”

The newly minted jewelry designer (whose debut line, Snooki Couture by Nicole Polizzi, launches Nov. 10 on StyleQueen.com) admits though she adores motherhood, it’s taken its toll on her body. “[My boobs] look huge — I hate it. Ugh.”

It’s only been two months since she gave birth to baby Lorenzo, but Snooki reveals she’s “desperate to lose the rest of the weight,” and has about 20 more pounds to go. “I’m hoping to lose it by my birthday [Nov. 23].”

Adds the star, “When I feel comfortable naked, that’s when I’ll feel good.”

Twenty pounds, really? There might be some stuff going on under her clothes that she doesn’t feel comfortable with, but with her tiny frame, I don’t think she has twenty pounds to lose. She’s said that she wants to go right back to her pre-pregnancy weight – 98 pounds – and I just don’t get it. Girl looks awesome, and I wish she’d just realize that already.
