Young Money’s Nicki Minaj and “Jersey Shore” reality star Snooki finally had a one-on-one encounter over the weekend during the Grammy Awards pre-show in Los Angeles.
Sharing a televised interview on the Grammys red carpet, both celebrities professed their admiration for each other.
“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)
Prior to the red carpet chat, Snooki shared her hopes to speak with the Barbie.
‘Jersey Shore’ star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is excited to hit the red carpet at the Grammys for MTV once more and is crossing her fingers in order to score a few interviews. Snooki revealed that there are a few stars in particular that she would love to talk to that night. “I’m very excited to see Bruno Mars … Lady Gaga, Drake, Nicki Minaj, like all the top artists are my favorite, so hopefully I’ll get to interview all of them,” Snooki revealed.

Last month, Snooki revealed Minaj’s “Jersey Shore” co-sign and their friendship.
“The most recent [unexpected fan] would probably be [rapper] Nicki Minaj,” Snooki revealed in an interview. “I met her at Salute the Troops for VH1 and she was backstage and I was like, ‘I really want to meet her!’ And they went up to her and she was like, ‘Yeah I want to meet Snooki’, so, you know, we kind of like hit it off. She’s a big fan of the show.” (CNN)
In summer 2010, Nicki named Snooki as one of many entertainers she would recruit for a fantasy all-women group.
She revealed that Hermione, the female character from Harry Potter, would be the first recruit. “You know in Boyz II Men, how there was that one dude that never sang, but just talked?” she asked. “Hermione would do the talking stuff because she has the [British] accent.” Next up, Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie and reality star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi would make the band. “She would be like one of the backup dancers,” Minaj said of the “Jersey Shore” cast member. The all-star lineup rounds out with two veteran Grammy winners. “We would have to have Lauryn Hill, like have to, and we would have to have Cyndi Lauper ’cause she’s funny, she’s crazy,” explained the “Your Love” hitmaker. “[Cyndi] reminds me of myself and I love her voice. I would produce her in the studio and be like, ‘Cyndi, give it to me like this, I want that feeling, I want that stuff.'” (Rap-Up)
