Daily Caller: Snooki: I’m just flaunting what the Almighty gave me
Question of the Day
Snooki: I’m just flaunting what the Almighty gave me
In a preview from Thursday’s episode of “Jersey Shore,” an Italian priest takes offense when the pint-sized celebrity strolls by an Italian church in a tiny skirt and low-cut tank top, which reveals her voluptuous breasts.
The 23-year-old tells the man of God to “shut up” after he asks her to “cover [her] body” in front of the church.
“The priest was like, ‘Cover up when you come to my church,’ ” Snooki said. “Or, he basically just called me a whore.” Apparently, the “Shore Thing” author’s chosen house of worship has a much more lenient dress code.
“In my church they’d be like, ‘Oh, nice outfit,’ ” the Oompa Loompa said.
This summer “Jersey Shore” was taped in Florence to acknowledge the cast’s Italian heritage. Though Snooki undoubtedly enjoyed the country’s heavenly food, she said last month that Italy could benefit from change.
“They need to get stronger tanning beds and have a gym on every block,” shetold the Huffington Post in August. “And they need more nail salons with Chinese people running them.”
Foo Fighters’ frontman has no interest in 'Glee'
Speaking to host Chelsea Handler, Mr. Grohl addressed the conflict he encountered this year when he said it’s “every band’s right … [not to] have to do … 'Glee' ” or give the teen program permission to perform his songs.
“I read somewhere that the creator of 'Glee,' who I never met - and I’ve really only watched three minutes of the show, I don’t really watch TV - I read something where he was kind of mouthing off about some friends of mine in rock bands,” Mr. Grohl told Miss Handler. “And I just felt like, you know, as a musician, you should be able to say no, should be able to say, ‘I don’t want to do your show,’ you should be able to say, ‘I don’t want to do anything that anyone tells me to do.’ ” Mr. Grohl, who defended the band Kings of Leon for opting not to have its music played on “Glee” this year, referenced his March comments about seeing no reason to let the TV show cover his tunes.
“I was doing an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. I didn’t realize it was some TV Hollywood thing. … Why should you have to do it?’ ” Mr. Grohl told Miss Handler. “Why is that necessary for you to have to do, as a rock musician, why should you have to say, ‘OK, Glee, take my song and turn it into a … musical’?”
In January, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy lashed out at Kings of Leon for denying the show rights to perform its songs.
“They’re self-centered, … and they missed the big picture,” Mr. Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter “They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of 'Glee' all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.”
