I know haters gotta hate. That's what haters do. But why do they have to hate on someone as brazen, interesting and lady-proud as Jersey Shore's Snooki? That's more or less what Upright Citizen's Brigade comic Kate McKinnon did when she recently performed as Snooki and filmed this video for the Daily News.
In the paper, McKinnon is, I think, probably just trying to be all hilarious-snarky-comedian, but it comes off as rude and judgy. Not what I like to see from my funny ladies. The article is supposedly a step-by-step guide to looking like Snooki. Which, after reading the whole thing, you will realize no one in her right mind would ever do, because apparently, Snooki is an ugly, stupid person.
1. Kate McKinnon, 26, a comedian from Harlem, recently performed as Snooki, the infamous star of the MTV phenomenon "Jersey Shore," with the Upright Citizens Brigade. "You try to be as brain-dead as possible," says McKinnon about playing the much-mimicked and maligned Snooki. "You just try to feel so good about yourself when you have no reason to."
Why doesn't Snooki have a reason to feel good about herself? She's cute and silly and on television. She might, however, feel bad about herself if she spent any time at all reading what people say about her. For example:
2. "She has a completely unsexy sexuality," says McKinnon, as she applies the first of many layers of foundation in a "Deep Caramel" color. "She's a good girl -- she's brazen."
Snooki is curvy and unabashedly proud of the way she chooses to look. That look isn't for everyone, and it's definitely not high fashion, but who cares? Do you dress and act like your friends? Even if that doesn't mean looking like a Vogue ad? Does anyone really want to see Snooki in khakis and a cardigan? Really?
9. Can you tell the difference? "It's fun to play someone who is just enjoying life without any regard for what is going on around her," says McKinnon.
I hope Snooki doesn't regard what's going on around her, because what it is is mainly mockery and derision. Don't take it Snooki. You are a bad broad.
