She's the drunk, smushing star of the show, but Snooki wants you to know that what you see on "Jersey Shore" isn't really her. Or, all sides of her, at least.
The mighty might guidette "Jersey Shore" star rockets on the cover of the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone, and gives a surprisingly candid assessment of her own show, and how she is portrayed. It's not all good.
"If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate it," she told the magazine. "I just hate it. Obviously, they're only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I'm seeing is me drunk and falling down. That's how I am when I party, but some of the stuff I do is, like, 'Really, Nicole?' I look like a freakin' alcoholic. I'm like, 'You're sweating, your makeup is running, you look gross.' I just look like s**t."
It's a breath of fresh air humility coming from one of the show's biggest stars in a cast that also features always self-assured guido The Situation. But it doesn't mean that she's done with the whole show business thing. After all, she's endeared herself to Americans with not just her hard partying ways, but her funny musings on life (whale sperm is why the ocean is salty) and self-effacing television appearances.
No, Snooki won't be going home to upstate New York. She plans on running an empire.
"When Jersey Shore ends I'm going to do more spinoffs," she told Rolling Stone. "If MTV doesn't want them, another network will be, like, 'What does Snooki do now?' or 'Snooki's getting married!' What I'd like is to turn out like Jessica Simpson, with her whole brand. She makes millions... I'm trying to build an empire, because after this I can't get a normal job. I mean, how do I go and sit behind a desk?"
Right now, we're all just Snooki's loyal subjects.
