“What’s Paris Hilton’s sister called? Isn’t it Nicky or something? Anyway, she apparently talked to someone about my first collection, and was like, ‘I don’t get it.’ I was like, Good! I’m glad she doesn’t get it. It’s not for her. If Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it. I think she’d look a lot better in them ... I have to admit, I do find that JWoww sexy in a really weird way. It’s like that sexy, dirty kind of girl—not dirty, but like a hot mess.”
– File this quote under surprising things we learned about actress/designer Chloe Sevigny. Who knew she’d be a “Jersey Shore” kind of girl? [Bullet]
It turns out that watching “Jersey Shore” is not the most brilliant way to waste one’s time — attending a conference on “Jersey Shore” Studies is. On Friday, UChicago hosted a conference on Jersey Shore Studies, where roughly 25 academics from the U.S. and Canada name-dropped Snooki and The Situation alongside Foucault and Marx. One paper examined the performance of being a “guido” or “guidette” as being similar to the performance of drag; another examined whether the show is an embarrassment to Italian-American culture. These crazy academics even coined a new term to explain all things DTL: “guidosexuality.” Way to take something fun and ruin it with overanalysis, smartypants! You don’t have to justify loving the trashiest show on television with “academic studies.” It’s OK to just, know you, enjoy sh**ty TV. [NY Times] Keep reading »
What the hell is going on here?! Regis Philbin is stripping for Snooki. And then he gives her a lapdance (although it’s not in the above clip).
Be warned, children, once you see it, it cannot be unseen.

Last night brought us the last show of the season for “Beavis and Butthead.” I mean, “Jersey Shore.” Eh, same thing. I am relieved we’re at the end of the season in Italy. It’s a good thing MTV decided season five will be the show’s last. Can I get a “Yeah, buddy!”?

“I was never best friends with Mike to begin with. I probably get along with him better now than I ever did. I just kind of handle him, but at the same time he’s a dramatic person and I’m not into that. That’s why I steer clear of him. Off the show we never really talk; we never have. We see each other at events and stuff — there are no hard feelings or anything — but on the show what you’re seeing now is me just avoiding drama. I can’t deal with it. It’s stressful enough being away from home, so I don’t need any more stress. And he brings a lot.”
– “Jersey Shore” castmate Vinny Guadagnino on his tenuous relationship with fellow castmate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. I think we can all agree that Mike is the worst. [NYMag.com]
You’re a smart lady (or dude). You’re on the market for some self-tanner. Do you buy the typical Neutrogena stuff in the respectable bottle, sans glitter, sparkles or neon warnings? Or do you instead choose to coat your skin in a product endorsed and no doubt packaged with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in mind? I’m asking, because I’m trying to figure out what the target demo for Snooki’s new line of self-tanner might be. Precocious, belly-button-ringed 8-year-olds? Middle-aged moms clawing at their spent youth? Circus clowns and Midwestern grifters? Because for sure — give it six months — you’re going to find bottles and bottles of the stuff rotting away at dollar stores and discount centers, crusting over and near exploding from heat exposure. Right next to all the other Snooki-endorsed flip flops, sunglasses, and perfumes out there.
If you haven’t seen enough of Snooki losing her s**t as of late— or her cooca for that matter — now you can bring a little piece of the “Jersey Shore” home. Thankfully, we don’t mean by way the way of crabs, but rather MTV.com’s three new “Jersey Shore” talking pens that can be yours today for the (t)winning price of $17.99! The voices of Pauly D, Snooki and The Situation are finally at your beck and call. Feeling down?

They are available for your immediate satisfaction at MTV.com and … Walgreens. [MTV.com] Keep reading »
