I'm sure many of you have seen in the news this week where Snooki from MTV's Jersey Shore was paid $32,000 to speak at Rutgers University.
Now, I'm the first to admit that sometimes I watch Jersey Shore. It's pretty much a trainwreck and sometimes I enjoy that trainwreck. However, I think the people on that show are ridiculous and have a lot of growing up to do. I'm just floored that a university would ask a reality tv "star" to speak to their students. I'm confused on what she could actually speak on. Tanning? Pickles? Her affinity for cheesy, steroid-using Italian-American men?
Sometimes when I hear stories like this, I really worry about the future of America. It seems like we keep getting dumber and putting stock in people that have no reason for being a celebrity other than they get drunk and make-out with people on camera.
