Snooki, AKA Nicole Polizzi, of Jersey Shore and the public consciousness, dramatically switched up her look. The reality star was seen with friend JWoww at an airport looking more hipster than…whatever it is her style is called. She was photographed wearing some sort of Lydia Deetz hat, Ray Ban Wayfarer-esque glasses, cropped leather jacket, tee proclaiming, ‘Be Yourself Everyone Else Is Already Taken — Oscar Wilde’ (LOL), slim black jeans, and those gigantic wooden platform boot things that Jeffery Campbell sent to earth to destroy us all. Ms. Polizzi tops off this look with very long very red (like Ariel of The Little Mermaid) red hair. Whatever, I don’t hate it, it’s loads better than her usual look. That tan though, that’s going to stay forever.

I know – I just about died when I considered the notion, too, but after reading the interview they recently gave to our friends at the Huffington Post, I … well, read for yourself. Snooki and J Woww stopped by MTV studios in New York City earlier this week and talked about sexuality, Jersey Shore, and feminism, and how they claim it all goes together.
Snooki: I told her [J Woww] to run for president so that everyone [including same-sex couples] could get married. Because I certainly can’t [run for president.]
JWoww: I was really upset — that’s what I tweeted about. My friend couldn’t get married. He had to get a domestic partnership [at the time] and I was so pissed off about that. I was like, “I want to go to your wedding. You’re going to be my bridesmaid and I’m going to be your bridesmaid…”
Snooki: Is he going to wear a dress?
JWoww: I don’t know. I hope so. [Laughs]
Huff Po: You were both featured in one of MTV’s “Love Is Louder” videos which tackles the issue of bullying. In it you mentioned that you know what it’s like to be discriminated against. What were you referring to?
JWoww: We’re just very stereotyped. [Snooki was] bullied in high school and so was I.
Snooki: Yeah. And I’m probably the top celebrity that gets bullied today. I’m just different and everyone hates me for it.
JWoww: What we do on the show — people say we’re alcoholics. We get discriminated against for drinking. And we’re tan so now we’ve caused these tanning taxes and we’re getting a bad rap for tanning.
Snooki: People just take us too seriously.
HP: What’s the biggest misconception people have about you?
Snooki: That we’re stupid. We’re not stupid. We’re very smart, actually.
JWoww: That really gets under my skin. It’s like you don’t know me to judge me. We’re sorry we’re not walking on the shore with three-piece business suits or evening gowns.
HP: Do you read your own press?
Snooki: We have Google alerts!
HP: So do you take what people write about you seriously? Snooki, when people are writing about the pregnancy rumors, for instance, does it freak you out?
Snooki: No. I just like my name being in the news.

What the hell is that, anyway? A crown? Over a heart? With feet? Is it the Shore version of the Irish Claddagh ring? You guys actually think this is going to be something she’s going to be happy with having when she’s fifty-some years old? Oh. Right. Yeah, you’re probably right. No, I can’t see Snooki ever outgrowing her obnoxious, loud-ass tendencies and her tanning and hair poofs, either. My bad.
Is it tolerable, or am I just gagging over nothing?

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.”

The ebullient munchkin recently announced her new line of “beach footwear” and flip-flops, primed to launch this very holiday season. Which is perfect! I always start shopping for open-toed platform wedges in December.
No word yet on how much Snooki Enterprises LLC will charge for those pink sequined pickle sandals, but Polizzi promises footwear at every price point, ranging from $15 to $50.
Then again, if you love pickles as much as Snooki does, just follow her lead and duct-tape a Vlasic jar underneath each foot. You know, like Moon Shoes. What.

A few weeks ago, we ran a small blurb in one of the link posts claiming that Snooki lost a couple of pounds. And she did, really. Judging by old pictures, Snooki probably lost around fifteen pounds. The story came and went through the Jersey Shore filter that I try to hard to maintain on this site, and I tried to vow not to talk about her after that.
However? It seems that Snooki’s trying to ride this one out as long as she can. She just spoke to People magazine this past week and had a lot to say:
Polizzi told PEOPLE she was working with a trainer and trying to eat healthy foods. She has also been experimenting with Zumba, a dance class, and even showed off her gymnastics skills at WWE Raw.
“I definitely want to get in shape and be healthy again,” the reality star, 23, said. “But it’s really hard to eat good when you’re traveling because you see fast food – and you want to go to this restaurant and that restaurant.”
“[I have] egg whites in the morning and chicken and salads,” she said. “And if you do drink, it’s gotta be clear liquors.” Now, instead of throwing back Long Island Iced Teas or margaritas (“Which are, like, a million calories,” she notes), Snooki’s new drink of choice is a lighter option: vodka with seltzer water.
“[For Jersey Shore's upcoming season] All we’re gonna eat is pasta,” she said. “I’m very, very scared – drinking wine and having spaghetti all day [would] throw me off course.”
The only thing that would throw me off course about you, Snooki, is if I woke up one day to a world where you weren’t a fight-picking pig with a warthog face, but hey. Congrats on the weight loss thing! Getting healthy is a good, mature thing to do, so maybe you could also put down the seventy-six adult beverages that you consume in a day, too. … But then you wouldn’t have much of a career, now, would you, girl?
