Ne-Yo Disses Snooki’s Rolling Stone Cover

9 Mar

When MTV created the reality TV series Jersey Shore, they created a reality juggernaut. The show’s stars have catapulted the show’s success by getting endorsements, sponsors, fragrances and appearances. This even includes magazine covers.

A couple of weeks ago, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi graced the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, and while many quietly voiced their distaste for the reality star’s presence on the cover, singer/songwriter Ne-Yo shared his frustration via Twitter:

Wow. Snooki is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Really? I quit. (Just kidding, but almost serious….) 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!! I gotta take this opportunity to thank those that recognize what I am regardless of what I do or don’t sell, what a blog hag says I am, etc. Fun is fun, mayhem is entertaining, but COME ON PEOPLE!! There’s gotta be some sort of balance somewhere! Man, GOD bless the biz….

I do agree with artists, actress, and actors that having Snooki on the cover of Rolling Stone sends the wrong message. It suggests that being a pseudo reality star generates more publicity than being hardworking and having actual talent.
