Rolling Stone magazine has been around for 44 years and everyone from music icons to Presidents have graced its cover. But when we saw Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki, the pint sized guidette from the popular reality show ‘Jersey Shore,’ we couldn’t help but think, did Rolling Stone jump the shark?
Jumping the shark is one of those defining moments when you know that your favorite television show has reached its peak, it’s in that instant you know it’s gone downhill. From that moment on, the product will simply never be the same. The phrase comes from the popular 70’s television show “Happy Days” where in one episode the main character, Fonzie, wearing swimming trunks and his leather jacket, ski jumps over a confined shark, answering a challenge to demonstrate his bravery.
Rolling Stone will continue to thrive and be an authoritative voice in music and pop culture, but by putting Snooki on their cover, heads will undoubtably be scratched. Is this a sign of the times, is this Rolling Stone keeping up with the culture? Granted, the “Jersey Shore” phenomenon busted on the scene and went crazy and Snooki is one of the shows favorites, but the cover of Rolling Stone? It must be a sign of the times—from John Lennon to Snooki.
The good thing is Snooki never disappoints and she didn’t disappoint here. Her quotes from the interview will surely make the internet rounds. And luckily we’ve compiled some of the best quotes from Snooki’s Rolling Stone interview, enjoy.
‘I’d like to turn out like Jessica Simpson, with her whole brand. She makes millions.’
Snooki On Nicole…
‘When I look in the mirror, I see Nicole, I see me. Then I sometimes see a crazy nut job that just wants to party. So, there’s two sides…It’s hard for people to see you one way, but you’re really the other way, so it’s kind of like, ‘Who am I, who are you?’ Sometimes, I confuse even myself.’
Snooki On Kissing…
‘I like kissing. Kissing is important. But if a guy sticks his tongue down your throat, it grosses me out and makes me want to throw up and I’ll be like, ‘That was gross,’ and I walk away.’
Snooki On The Show…
‘We didn’t know what was going on. They put us in a room and gave us like 500 pages of stuff to read. Nobody
