JWoww and Snooki honor some of pop culture’s most memorable individuals in a new photo shoot for Buzzfeed.
The pair dresses as Wayne & Garth from Wayne’s World, former BFFs Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton, and they even dressed as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from AMC’s Breaking Bad.
The girls compare themselves to Laverne & Shirley, but Snooki told Buzzfeed how much she loves the bad girls of the industry – Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.
“I love Rihanna, but actually my girl crush right now is Miley Cyrus,” Miss Polizzi explained. “I love her. I want to hug her. I haven’t met her since new Miley came out. I met old Miley.”
Rihanna is making history all over the entertainment industry.
The singer will receive the first-ever Icon Award at the 2013 American Music Awards.
According to show’s producer Larry Klein, “The first-ever Icon Award was created to honor an artist whose body of work has made a profound influence over pop music on a global level. Rihanna’s iconic and innovative sound has enabled her to become one of the most influential and bestselling artists of all time.”
The 41st American Music Awards will be held on November 24, 2013 at the Nokia Theatre.
Katy Perry covers the new issue of Marie Claire Australia.
Katy Perry is standing up for her fellow musician, Miley Cyrus. In the new issue of Marie Claire Australia, Perry supports Cyrus’ decision to live her life the way she sees fit.
“I think it’s just for anyone who feels a little bit down in the dumps, like they don’t have any strength. Sometimes I write these anthems because I need that boost too. I wrote [it] when I felt like I was going inward with my problems. Sometimes your biggest bully in life can be yourself – can be the person standing in the way of your success, and sometimes you have to give yourself a boost. That was what ‘Roar’ was about. It is me, as I would imagine, an uptight New York girl who crashed in the jungle, and over the course of the music video she finds her strength and makes friends with the animals she was scared of at first.”
On Miley Cyrus:
“You know what – she’s so young and she’s trying to figure it out, too. She’s just finding her bearing right now – and, God you really don’t know how much pressure and insane scrutiny there is in this world until you’re in their shoes. I think that everyone just deserves in [that] type of position because it’s a really hard level to play at.”
On her album, Prism:
“I started PRISM in November 2012 and I was in a darker place in my life. There was a song called ‘By the Grace of God’.. Which paints a picture about how low I was… Feeling like I wasn’t enough, it wasn’t possible for me to be loved. From a lot of search for help… through a lot of changing how I think about myself… On this record, there’s a song called ‘Love Me’ which is a song about loving yourself first in order to be loved properly.”
