Reality TV star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was paid $32,000 on Thursday by Rutgers University to speak on what she knows best, which is the GTL lifestyle. GTL is short for gym, tanning, laundry lifestyle, in case you aren’t up on all the Jersey Shore lingo.
The news about Snooki speaking at Rutgers broke today, on April Fools Day but sadly this is NOT a joke. If you weren’t worried about America’s college students before this news, keep in mind that Rutgers is New Jersey’s largest university!
Huffington Post reports that Rutgers University paid Snooki $32,000 which is “$2,000 more than the $30,000 the university is paying Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison to deliver Rutgers’ commencement address in May.”
What did Rutgers get for $32,000? Some of the valuable advice from Snooki included gems such as:
“Study hard, but party harder.”
Topics that the MTV Jersey Shore star discussed during her speaking engagement included: Snooki’s “poof” hairstyle, hooking up with guido juiceheads and taking long showers while shooting Jersey Shore.
