Snooki Doesn’t Know About That J.K. Rowling or Maya Angelou

Oh, Snooki. Honey child, we’re all really proud of you for writing these books, we really are, and trust me, I think it’s great that you’re following your dreams and trying to become a role model. But Nicole, darling, please just believe me when I tell you that you’re going to have to actually open your eyes and learn something about the world around you. Just do that one thing, and I promise that you’ll be well on your way to greatness.

In case you might think that I’m being a little too hard on Snickers here, check out what she had to say to Jimmy Kimmel about fellow authors:

The pint-sized reality TV star visited “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night to promote her second book, “Confessions Of A Guidette” and confirmed that it’s somehow possible to be a best-selling author and not know who J.K. Rowling and Maya Angelou are.

Host Jimmy Kimmel told the reality star he was astounded that Snooki was able to write three books, (yes, she has a sequel to “Shore Thing” coming out as well) in a year when it takes an author like J.K Rowling three years to write a single book.

Snooki told Kimmel, “I don’t know who that is, but I’m here.” When told that Rowling is the author behind the “Harry Potter” series, Snooki replied, “Oh, ok, those movies are cool.”

Later Kimmel joked to Snooki that she had used the word “friggin” 74 times in her book, breaking a record set by Dr. Maya Angelou.

“I don’t know who that is … I don’t know who anybody is!” she said.

We know, Snooki.  We know.
