Snooki Made $32,000 for Rutgers Appearance

Snooki was paid $32,000 for two Q&A sessions at Rutgers University on Thursday. According to Popeater, she earned a couple thousand more than Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison will make to deliver their commencement speech next month. Rightly so. Has Toni Morrison ever tried to ride a bike while drunk? I rest my case.

While the university invited Morrison, the student-run committee invited Snooki and paid her with student activity fees included in undegrad tuition. Why Snooki? Because they wanted a speaker who would appeal to Rutgers students. Hear that? That’s the sound of thousands of high school juniors scratching Rutgers off the list of colleges to apply to.

“Snooki fit that mold very well,” said Kassee, 22, a senior from Jersey City. Students lined up early in the afternoon to secure one of the 1,000 wristbands to get into the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows, which featured Snooki being interviewed by comedian Adam Ace. The event was called “Inside the Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Studio” — a play on the name of the cable television interview show, “Inside the Actors Studio.”

Students in the largely-female audience roared as Snooki walked into the first show, wearing a short black dress, straight hair and high-heel platform shoes. The diminutive star and Ace, her interviewer, sat in upholstered chairs in front of a coffee table on a bare stage.

What did Snooki talk about during the Q&A? Her pouf and how to do the Jersey Shore fist pump of course. Thrilling stuff.

Not everyone was happy with this though. One freshman, Dan Oliveto, rolled his eyes and quipped, “Such a waste of my money. If I want to listen to someone talk, they should have something intelligent to say.” What a buzzkill. Go back to the library, you dork.

Granted, they did try to get other people but they were too expensive. Comedians Aziz Ansari and Kevin Hart both charged $75,000 for a campus show. Which is why they paid this Oompa Loompa $32,000 to talk about her hair. Money well spent.
