R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo has shared his shocked reaction to "Jersey Shore" reality star Snooki being the latest Rolling Stone magazine cover girl.
While trying to maintain his cool, Ne-Yo expressed incredulous feelings over Snooki's eye-grabbing feature.
"Wow. Snooki is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Really? I quit. (Just kidding, but almost serious....)," he tweeted March 7th.
"No disrespect to Snooki, I don't know her, but damn Rolling Stone? REALLY? REALLY! I guess....."
"I feel a rant coming on, but at the sake of sounding like I'm complaining or even hating, Imma chill. I got y'all. New album on the way."
"I WILL get the respect I deserve in this business or I won't be in this business. PERIOD. Have a #splendid day twit fam!!" (Ne-Yo's Twitter)
A day prior, pop star singer Pink also revealed her shocked reaction.
"Dear Rolling Stone, Really??," Pink tweeted March 6th. (Pink's Twitter)
Snooki is featured on the Rolling Stone cover riding a missile.
Yes, the new cover features none other than Jersey Shore's Snooki, and to be more specific, Snooki is being launched on a missile with the words: Snooki's Wild Ride (America's #1 Party Girl) underneath. The real sting of it all (aside from this being her second RS cover) is that in tiny print somewhere under the missile head is the name: Radiohead. You know, the highly successful band that just dropped their latest album? That would have been a nice cover. (Gothamist)
Although Ne-Yo and Pink may have issues with Snooki, the reality star recently befriended Young Money's Nicki Minaj.
"Did you know that I'm obsessed with her?" Nicki said. Countered Snooki, "I'm obsessed with Nicki!" Things got started when Minaj -- done up like a safari-inspired bride of Frankenstein -- sauntered over, leading Snickers to wonder, "Is this your hair or no?" "Snooks? What, do you mean to dis my hair?" Nicki said. "I mean I'm jealous!" "OK, whatever! I wanted you to wear your pouf today so we could be matching." "I did," confessed Snooki, "but it deflated from the heat, you know what I mean?" Before she headed inside, the Pink Friday songstress paid the reality star one compliment Snooki is unlikely to forget. "I'm proud of you," she said. "You're doing your thing, and I'm excited." (MTV)
