"Jersey Shore" star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is enjoying her time in the spotlight, but in the wake of her recent arrest for disorderly conduct, the 22-year-old wants to make it clear that she has no intention of being a role model for young girls.
"I'm not trying to be a role model. I'm just trying to be myself. When I see seven-year-olds screaming my name and saying they're my biggest fan, I'm like ‘you shouldn't be watching my show!’ My show is for 16 and older,” Snooki told Pop Tarts at an InTouch party. “We're at a shore house, we're drinking and partying, we're hooking up – pretty much what young adults do. For seven-year-olds to watch that, I really don't think it is okay."
Another thing that's not okay? Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino on a dance floor. Snooki doesn’t think her partner in slime will fare too well as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”
"I feel bad for him, he can't dance. He'll humiliate himself,” she said. “He can't even do a fist pump correctly, so I don't even know what he's doing.”
And perhaps the real reason the reality television sensation rejected the recent marriage proposal from new boyfriend Jeff Miranda was because he just doesn’t fit the criterion of her “dream man.”
"It would be Vin Diesel with Robert De Niro's accent,” Snooki laughed.
We were also surprised to find out there's more to Miss Polizzi than binge drinking, tanning and poufy hair. Snooki urges all Americans to do more for those deeply affected by the events of September 11.
“My dad is firefighter, and when that happened, all the firefighters and NYPD, all the victims - it just broke my heart. I thought about my dad, and if he was in that building ... we should do more,” Snooki said. “I think that at every anniversary everybody should donate and do something for the families and remember the people who died."
