New Jersey state university Rutgers paid $32,000 to 23-year-old MTV reality star Snooki last week to give a speech about partying.
The Jersey Shore star spoke to 2,000 students at a Q&A session last week and offered advice such as “When you’re tan, you feel better about yourself,” and “Study hard, but party harder,” according to the NY Post.
Snooki received $2,000 more than Nobel-Prize winner Tonie Morrison will get for this year’s commencement address. This has caused outrage among some parents and, of course, tax payers.
