Snooki Slams The Situation: Mike Is “Already Broke!”
It’s about to be a stituation.
She may be the star of her own realtiy show but Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi is finally getting real. The pint-sized starlet of MTV‘s Jersey Shore took a break after filming her fourth season and hawking her sunglasses, flip-flops and fragrance line, for what she calls her first “real” interview with GQ magazine.
Snooki may be a New York Times best-selling author—yes A Shore Thing sold that many copies—but she admits she doesn’t know who J.K. Rowling or Maya Angelou are. “I don’t read,” she says. “I don’t like to read Harry Potter or anything like that. It’s not my style. We were supposed to read in high school but I never did because I just used the Cliffs Notes, books were too long”
Currently putting the finishing touches on two different novels, Gorilla Beach and Confessions of a Guidette, the 23-year-old wishes that she could write her storyline on Jersey Shore. “I wouldn’t show as much drinking and partying,” said Snooki “I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time—which they don’t show. We don’t even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don’t show anything but us drinking and hooking up. Maybe because of the success of the show, they think that if they don’t show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn’t stay successful, but I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it’d even change people’s minds about us.”
Despite her public perception, Snooki insists that there’s a lot more to her then what we see on T.V. Check out the highlights from her interview with GQ below:
On Politics: “Um, I didn’t vote for Barack Obama, but I’m supportive of him obviously because he is our president and hopefully he can fix this country because it sucks right now. Of course, I voted for McCain. Donald Trump, I would vote for him. Trump would make this country better I feel. He gets shit done.”
On Her Veterinarian Background: “Test me and bring me to a hospital. I can induce an animal, do surgery, do anesthesia, and take blood. I have an education, I went to college, you know? [People ] just think that we’re stupid, that we have no education, and all we do is drink, have sex. So if you want to tell me I’m stupid again, let’s go to an animal hospital.”
On Money: “I save it. Jersey Shore is going to end soon. My entire outfit is probably like 50 bucks total. I don’t care. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!”
