Snooki?? Is that you??
The Jersey Shore star got a pretty dramatic makeunder for her photo shoot with V magazine, which included taking off all her makeup and de-poofing her hair.
Not only did she physically expose herself for the gorgeous black and white photos, but she also opened up with a fairly honest interview.
Talking about being bullied while growing up, she revealed:
"I've been bullied my whole life. In high school, me and my girlfriends were freshmen and we were all pretty girls in cheerleading and stuff, so the older girls would bully us because all of their guys want to hang out with us."
LOL, not sure how that classifies as bullying, but it's Snooki, sooooo….
On how restrictive the show is on the entire cast:
"You can’t leave without a film crew with you. If you want to leave, you have to tell them an hour before so they can get ready. There are no cell phones, no TV, and you can’t read. You can’t write or pass notes. You can’t listen to music, you can’t do anything. It’s kind of like being in jail for two months—and people wonder why all we do is drink! It’s because there’s nothing else to do! It passes the time and makes it fun. If you’re sober the whole time, you will go insane and kill yourself."
And of course, her thoughts on motherhood:
"Everyone will be surprised to see a different side of me. I’m loving, caring, sensitive, protective, and very maternal, no matter what people might think."
By the looks of these photos, we already see a much more mature Snooki! No more drunken pint-sized meatball. Well, guess she's always going to be a pint-sized meatball…
