Oh, Rutgers! Snooki Visits University, Gets Paid More Than Toni Morrison

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSnooki

rutgers pays snooki more than toni morrison

Guess the Jersey Shore star is more of a draw than the Nobel/Pulitzer Prize-winner…

On Thursday, Snooki was paid $32,000 to speak at Rutgers about her hair.

Okay, she didn't ONLY talk about her hair…she also talked about fist pumping and tanning. LOLz.

This May, Toni Morrison will deliver Rutgers' commencement address…but she'll only get paid $30,000!

While we're sure Ms. Morrison will have solid, legit life advice for the graduating students, we suppose Snooki's advice is worth an extra two-grand.

Here's the advice that Snook had for Rutgers students:

"Study hard, but party harder."

$32,000 well spent!

Do U think Snooki deserved to be paid more than Toni Morrison for her Rutgers appearance?

    WOW! the students at that schools should be embarrassed! the school should be embarrassed. I wouldn't apply there!



  2. 2

    That's just sad.



  3. 3

    It's amazing what our culture has come to know and appreciate. This is awful.



  4. 4

    I have to wonder what kids at the top schools think about . . . I fear the next generation!!



  5. 5

    This makes me embarrassed to be a Rutgers student… This is the icing on the cake of redic sh*t Rutgers has been doing recently



  6. 6

    Not gonna lie, I don't know who the heck Toni Morrison is.
    32 gs for Snooki though? YAY Snooks LOL that's pretty serious



  7. 7

    …Does that question honestly have to be asked, Perez? I can guarantee no one honestly believes Snooki deserves that much money for talking about her hair and tanning, and I'M a huge Snooki fan. That's pathetic. Just shows what this world is coming to… and that's sad.



  8. 8

    It's pathetic that you would even need to ask. Why in the hell did this school invite that bloated, disgusting waste of space Snooki to begin with?? Are they trying to tell their students to just drop out and become total drunken slut losers because they might still become successful despite any possible fathomable reason anyway?



  9. 9

    Why is Rutgers paying Snooki anything to appear at their university? It is a place of learning, not a TV studio.

    boo. that sucks. she should not be getting that kind of money to say that. seriously?



  11. 11

    Rutger is now the biggest joke of any school in the country. How fucking pathetic.



  12. 12

    Wow. That's just ridiculous.

  13. @v@ says – reply to this


    13

    Nothing against the Snooki here, but no, I don't think she deserves more.
    Modern day idolatry, right here.



  14. 14

    society made snooki therefore she deserves what we are willing to pay her.



  15. 15

    This is why society is garbage. Case and point. The worst, saddest part is we are on a steady decline…It'll only get worse from here. WW3 needs to hurry up and happen to "thin" out some of the retards.



  16. 16

    The world has officially gone to shit.



  17. 17

    Re: meowsayme – hahaha i totally agree with you! our school just enjoys ruining its reputation.



  18. 18

    And we wonder why our country is in the state its in.



  19. 19

    Just goes to show you that they didn't learn from their education.



  20. 20

    That needs to be rectified fast! Bump up Toni another $5000 and this all goes away….



  21. 21

    lol dumb americans, no wonder the rest of the world hates you, you're all fucking stupid



  22. 22

    Wow. What is this country coming to?



  23. 23

    LOL. That must really have been an awesome intellectual experience?



  24. 24

    why would snooki be payed to appear at all!!!? she clearly has no educational value to lend whatsoever…rutgers is a waste of space as a school….this is why jersey sucks and is considered the armpit of america



  25. 25

    This is what's wrong with America. You would never hear of such a thing in other countries.



  26. 26

    Of course she doesn't deserve the money but unfortunately it was the schools decision. I like watching jersey shore but 32,000 is too much for what she had to talk about. Maybe a hundred but even that is too much. There is no way snooki could say anything that important to college students. Toni Morrison deserves the money she is getting to speak at graduation. Hope the students appreciate her speaking over snooki.



  27. 27

    The paid that stupid troll that much money which is embarrassing and then to pay her more than a highly educated, talented woman like Toni Morrison is just insulting.

    America, you want to know why the rest of the world is kicking you ass, look no further than the worship of these Jersey Shore dolts and the idiot Kardashians.



  28. 28

    Re: BeeLahhve – why do you comment on every jersey shore topic when you hate them so much? if you ask me its a wast of time, like snooki would say: just saying



  29. 29

    This is pathetic! Our society is turning to shit! Why do we applaud such stupidity! Ppl like Snookie and the ppl in "teen mom" need to be banned from tv



  30. 30

    Hell to the NO!
    Toni Morrison's writing will last for generations, but Snooki's popularity is a flash in the pan.
    For shame, Rutgers. You are depriving your students, and squandering their hard-earned money.



  31. 31

    That is a sad state of affairs when white trailer trash can demand more than Toni Morrison…. DREADFUL…

  32. 32

    snookis antics are funny sure.. but honestly.. they paid 32K to have her give awful advice to students who are already facing a tough times ahead of them- as we know the job market for recent grads is bleek…. Students tuition are at at an all time high and Universities are wasting money on crap like this!! Sickening.



  33. 33

    Pathetic

  34. @v@ says – reply to this

    Blame the pablum the country's media is spooning out. That actually says more about the journalists these days than anything else. They and their employers determine what's 'important', and if they were better educated, they'd be off in a lab or a hospital somewhere trying to better mankind. The public will glom on to whatever's offered. How about hyping up some people of character? Give the kids some actual role models besides, er, the Snookis? The men and women and things that society looked up to were more substantial a few decades ago.



  35. 35

    i would be pissed if my tuition money went to that garbage. such a shame



  36. 36

    KEEP HATINGGGG you are only making her more famous but talking about her!!



  37. 37

    Now I KNOW the end is near!!!! Sorry comment on the state of our beloved union…..



  38. 38

    Isn't Rutgers the university that Tyler Clementi was attending when he killed himself because two fellow students recorded him having sex with another man? Why should Rutgers pay someone to speak at their university who is on a show that refers to an unattractive woman as a grenade? The way they treat each other both verbally and physically is appalling. Is it only considered bullying when a gay person is being bullied?



  39. 39

    Re: @v@ – I agree, I mean seriously - has anybody ever seen the movie "Idiocracy". I have my fears.



  40. 40

    Yeah she deserved it! Shes Snooki! who doesnt want to know about the poof :]



  41. 41

    Thats sick. If I was a student there I would be protesting that like crazy. What a joke of a college



  42. 42

    I am a Rutgers graduate and I am so disappointed that she is going. I hate her so much



  43. 43

    If I went to Rutgers, Id be putting in for a transfer to Farleigh Dickinson right about now….



  44. 44

    Wow, some people need to pick their wedgie and read a book prior to posting a comment. That's includes the workers at Perezhilton.com. This was event was paid for by the students (think student council for those you who have yet to graduate). They wanted her, paid for her, etc. The UNIVERSITY is paying for the graduation speaker. There is a BIG difference.



  45. 45

    Re: JackieMichele – That's even worse



  46. 46

    I am a Rutgers student but i was not one of the student's that attended last night's event. What most people are failing to realize is that only a small group of people involved in ONE organization at Rutgers actually invited Snooki and decided to pay her that amount. MOST of the students were just told of the event we did not have a choice in the matter. There are over 30,000 students that live on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus and only 1,000 of them attended this show. Most people are upset that RUPA paid that much money for Snooki to come and basically serve no real purpose.



  47. 47

    Az much az I like Jersey Shore, this is even more proof that we are indeed in the "End Times".



  48. 48

    After hearing that, I'm convinced it's the 'end of days'. Our nation's become a nation of idiots.



  49. 49

    Why would a University pay Snooki to speak??? That's just plain moronic… They should be ashamed…

    Re: mlmccrim – I don't mean to rain on Snooki. She's running with the opportunity media gave her, and she's juggled it into a tidy living. Media is the entity that put her forth. It's kind of funny that the students wanted her, and they probably had a hoot. It's just that I can't believe it's not butter.



  51. 51

    Poor decision on behalf of Rutgers! It has really lost a good deal of it's credibility.



  52. 52

    Wow… that's fucking depressing.

    53

    I hope this is a Aprils fools joke..Yikes! Snook's is laughing all the way to the bank!



  54. 54

    I go to Rutgers and everyone I know is pissed that she was paid to come in the first place. I had never even HEARD how much she was paid.

    Btw, this money could have been used to keep one of the employees that lost their job in all the downsizing–that makes it even more infuriating.



  55. 55

    I heard Snoopy gave some very informative information about STD's and what drugs were best to combat them…



  56. 56

    This country is headed for the toilet idolizing this no talent interloping piece of sh-t.



  57. 57

    Just sad. Unbelievable.



  58. 58

    As much as I adore Snooks, the shame I feel for this school is unimaginable. Toni Morrison is a treasure to mankind and the message that is sent out by paying Nicole more is that there's no real use in using your brain, drink yourself stupid on tv, show you cooca -and you'll still be winning. Shame.



  59. 59

    Toni Morrison is a goddamn genius! No offense to Snooki, but she doesn't deserve to breathe the same air as Morrison, but then again, none of us really do.

    If I was stupid enough to go to Rutgers in the first place, I'd be transferring out PRONTO… What the hell could a brainless ogar like Snookie have to say to college kids? I guess anything goes when you're in Jersey, the asshole of New York City.



  61. 61

    I only make a fraction of what that girl (Snooki) makes, but that's just ridiculious. She makes her money off MTV (trying to squeeze more money out of her contract with them), and appearances (mainly clubs). Your advice is to party harder than study? What a moron but than again we already knew that.
