Snooki: I Need To Build An Empire — I Can't Get A Job After 'Jersey Shore!'

Snooki may appear as the dumb, drunk girl on ‘Jersey Shore’ —  but she has a plan for her future after the MTV show ends! Her dream? Think about how Jessica Simpson has built her clothing empire!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may have always known that she wanted to be a household name and now she realizes that she will never be able to get a job after her run on the Jersey Shore. “After this, I cannot get a normal job,” Snooki says in the new Rolling Stone.

Snooki‘s answer to her coming dilemma? “I’m trying to build an empire,” she says. “What I’d like is to turn out like Jessica Simpson, with her whole brand. She makes millions.”

“It’s only been a year, but I’m actually very smart about this business,” Snooki explains. “And then when Jersey Shore ends, I’m going to do more spinoffs, and if MTV doesn’t want them, another network will. Like ‘What does Snooki do now?’ or ‘Snooki’s getting married!'”

But right now, Snooki still has a commitment to the show. And despite all the partying, drinking and hooking up on camera — Snooki says that’s not who she is in real life.

“Obviously, they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down,” she says. But “when I look in the mirror, I see Nicole, I see me.”

For the two months that the cast is trapped in the house, cameras are everywhere. The only private time away not in front of the lens comes in the shower.

“That’s why we all take three-hour showers, just to get away from it,”  Snooki confesses. “Another reason is, if you masturbate, you probably only do it in the shower. Otherwise, you’d know that people are looking at you.”

But Snooki also talks about what her life was like before she got discovered. She tells the story of how in 11th grade she lost her virginity — only to be ignored by the boy the next day.
