Icona Pop move from MTV to Stage 48
As reality television slowly drags itself into the oblivion, it is safe to say that we, as a country, are pretty much done with MTV's 'Jersey Shore.' The greased-up guido and obnoxious fist-pumping fad came and went but, nonetheless, it did happen: at one point, the show was the highest rated show e ... More >>

Much to your dismay, we're sure, nude photos of Jersey Shore star "Snooki" have surfaced and currently are making the rounds on the Internet. Snooki, as you know, is more of a punchline than an actual person -- often ridiculed for her "meatball"-esque appearance and Jersey-like demeanor. That said, ... More >>
Is Snooki the Bret Easton Ellis of guidos? Her novel Gorilla Beach -- a Jersey Shore roman a clef, if you will -- will hit bookstore shelves May 15. Hollywoodlife.com claimed this afternoon to have gotten an exclusive copy of the first chapter, "Like a Slutty Virgin." Of course, we had guessed t ... More >>
No, not Snooki. Paul Iacono was the young star of MTV's The Hard Times of RJ Berger, in which he was a sophomore with a large penis. He played young Patrick opposite Christine Ebersole in Mame and was in a version of Sail Away starring Elaine Stritch.
The week brought us Jon Brion and Shellac and Sam Sparro (not to mention a handful of surprise Occupy Wall Street pop-ins), and that wide spectrum of genres is also represented in this weekend's concert listings. Tonight Deadmau5, who Maura has just informed me stands out as the only artist to be n ... More >>
The raucously low-class reality show Jersey Shore tends to spoof itself, so a musical mockery of it seemed to me like a bad idea. But the production I just saw at the Actors Playhouse--which was a hit at the Fringe Festival--was a winner, because it's fast-moving, with nonstop music and raun ... More >>
I see at least three Oscar winners in these silent but riveting home movies taken by Roddy McDowall in Malibu in the kicky '60s. There's Jane Fonda, Ruth Gordon, and Julie Andrews, and of course, Tammy Grimes and...
I don't know why you would want to watch this either.As the fourth season of Jersey Shore creeps upon us like red tide, and we learn more about Bridge & Tunnel, a precursor MTV show that the Shore's guido-monsters ate, let us remember how hyperventilating poofball Snooki came to be.
Brianna and Gabriella almost escaped from Staten Island. But MTV pulled the plug on the original Jersey Shore
A new poll has found that people either don't really care about the negative aspects of the Jersey Shore when evaluating the Garden State.

When their reality-TV star fades, some male contestants turn to gay porn
Insert Jersey Shore joke here. Soon, kids on the boardwalk may no longer be able to artificially bake in Jersey. The New Jersey Assembly Health Committee passed a proposal forbidding eager young "juiceheads" under the age of 18 from tanning via bed on Monday, and the full Jersey Assembly will ... More >>
It's on the 13th floor of Resorts' Ocean Tower, but here's hoping that won't be an unlucky roll of the dice.

Okay, we're going to present a couple facts that will probably anger you, but they need to be introduced in order to report this story. 1) Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was asked to speak at Rutgers University. 2) Over 2,000 students attended the lecture. 3) She was paid $32,000 by the state-funded ...

Not a joke: New York Times best-selling author Snooki will be paid $32,000 by the Rutgers University Programming Association for appearing at two "student-produced comedy Q&A sessions" yesterday. This has generated great controversy, as that's $2,000 more than the amount Toni Morrison, who, y ... More >>
Our tiny, tanned authoress really can do anything she sets her mind to, can't she? Here, Snooki has her own horribly overacted WWE moment, which, now that we think about it, is probably not all that different from being on the Jersey Shore. Snooki will wrestle Vickie Guerrero live at the Georgia Dom ... More >>
Playgirl Snooki's ex boyfriend, Jeff Miranda, is always semi-nude anyway as he prances down the boardwalk reeking of eau de Guido. But now he's more semi-nude. Jeff just submitted a shower photo to Playgirl--yes, them again--showing what he's sort of almost made of, and I guess it's his Mi ... More >>
This isn't aimed at you folks, mind you. Just at people on other blogs who weigh in with unbearably cliched comments safe from the anonymity of their armchair.
Jersey Shore star Snooki has been voted by Yahoo users as the worst Valentine's date. The New York Daily News News reports that she "got 41 percent of votes in a poll of omg! Yahoo readers on the woman with whom they would least like to spend Valentine's Day." This is so wrong: Snooki would b ... More >>
This one will really make you spit out your gum. Since Snooki's real name is Nicole Polizzi, her amazing new novel A Shore Thing has been turning up on chain store bookshelves right next to the work of the alphabetically close Edgar Allen Poe!
In this video, which exists for the ostensible purpose of promoting Snooki's magical new love pendant, our tanned quintuple-plus threat and brand empress visits a psychiatrist, is hypnotized into love, and shares a pickle with a geek (played by Andy Milonakis).

Yesterday she tweeted it. But when we didn't see Snooki's fiction debut A Shore Thing on the New York Times Best-Sellers list, (and when we heard, in fact, that sales of the book hadn't even been that great), we wondered...could our favorite teensy, tan empress of the beaches be confused? Cou ... More >>
Following in the plush footsteps of any double/triple/six-packed threat (what's with the Situation these days, anyway?), Snooki, who already, obviously, has a book out, not to mention her special limited edition New Year's Eve pendant, is set to unroll an unprecedented array of new "Snooki-br ...

During last week's blizzard, I was kooky-crazy enough to take my life in my hands and ride my freakin' bike! And I found it a kind of wet and wild adventure, almost like surfboarding (but with rats instead of sharks around me). But the next day, when I took my bike out, all the snow had set ... More >>
Rest easy, friends, because our dear, displaced Snooki has found a home for New Years Eve! After being ousted from the Times Square ceremony in which she'd been "supposed to" drop in the ball "like a friggin' hampster," her homeland has taken her in again. Via the New York Times Arts Beat, sh ... More >>
via MTVSad (or happy?) news...well, let's just say it's conflicting: Apparently, that whole putting Snooki in a ball just like a little hampster and then dropping her into Times Square for the big midnight hurrah on New Year's Eve is not going to happen after all. Because it would be...crazy? ... More >>
See how they did that?New Year's Eve 2011 in Times Square will be more than just Snooki-in-a-ball (Snooki actually in the ball, an image that has captivated us for longer than we'd like to admit, though in fairness, she herself has said she's going to be like "a freakin' hampster").

It is no longer hailing, but it's supposed to be freezing outside. Inside, I have a fan blowing on my face. It's Tuesday. Press Clips, Day 12, Late Edition, right here:
As we wait with bated, beer-bong-scented breath for Snooki's debut into the literati, we are plagued with questions. What will her book's title be? (A Shore Thing.) What will it be about?

Sometimes the headlines just write themselves. Spoiler: The Jersey Shore's embattled Snooki was found guilty of "annoying others on the beach with her antics," which included, apparently, using a beer bong, falling off a bike, and being entirely too tan (that's just our opinion).
Everyone knows Jersey Shore is trashy, but is that trashiness quantifiable in any realistic way? Apparently so, as the guidos of Jersey Shore are being used -- in such an explicit dirty manner -- as pawns in luxury goods consumerism warfare. How?
Every post-modern girl of a certain age dreams of being proposed to on the cover of a high-class glossy magazine. And yet, only a few of us ever actually get to see that fantasy come true.

Saturday's New York Post dedicated its entire cover to Snooki's arrest on the Jersey Shore, turning a few line gossip item into an overlong feature that read more like press release than even a puff piece. On Sunday, the cover was unfortunately occupied by huge news, leaving Jersey Shore only ... More >>
Yesterday, upon the arrest of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, we got a lesson on Twitter reporting, as TMZ scoured feeds for beachfront witnesses of "America's beloved pint-sized troublemaker."

We were getting nervous for a minute there. The cast of the Jersey Shore was, up till today, on strike (everyone except Snooki and The Situation, that is). The status of Season 3 was unclear.
