In 2009, there was a reality show that took the world by storm and by surprise. That show was Jersey Shore, and it was a reality show about several New Jersey 20-Somethings, and one of the more well-known names to achieve overnight fame from the show was Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki. Snooki has done a lot since Jersey Shore, and she has recently released her first music video about being a "Yung Mommy".
Yes, the "young" is misspelled deliberately, but I'm honestly not certain why. The video celebrates her life with her husband Jionni LaValle, who she married in 2014 after four years of dating. The video shows her along with her children Lorenzo and Giovanna.
Snooki explains her music video in a post on Instagram saying: "I've decided to be an [expletive] and record a song about my life and being a mom and shoot this fun and hysterical music video to go along with it," as well as "I hope I win a Grammy for this one." She also tweeted: "I wanna thank all you awesome humans for having a good laugh with me on this video! U think Drake [will] collab with Yung Mommy now?"
If you watch the video, it is pretty what you would expect. It is Snooki singing about being a mother, and her kids are there. The production values don't look very good, and this is probably deliberate. It seems like this is all done with an almost comical fashion, with a deliberately cheesy feel to it. It has an odd seventies color scheme, and it almost looks like a short that would play on Sesame Street or The Electric Company.
Snooki is one of those stars who used to be a huge party animal, and was pretty well known for her hair poof. She has been satirized on Saturday Night Live many times, and she changed her image as party animal to mother pretty quickly.
Snooki appeared on Dancing with the Stars back in 2013, but she was eliminated after a few episodes. Her most recent appearance was on FYI's Nicole and Jionni's Shore Flip. According to her imdb page, it would appear that the former reality star is going to be on The Apprentice, and it clearly won't be with Donald Trump this time.
So, is this the beginning of Snooki's singing career? Do we need to remind you that Drake, who she refers to in a tweet, was once a star on Degrassi: The Next Generation? My point is that singers often start in weird locations.
