Since the Jersey Shore's Snooki is now a published author she wants to be taken seriously, and that means a name change.
Although she admits to waking up in a garbage bin once a month, Snooki now wants to be known by her real name of Nicole Polizzi because, like, obviously, she is a serious adult role model an' all that.
The pickle lover has just released her first book A Shore Thing, co-written with a proper author and about hooking up on the boardwalk.
With gems such as: "Any juicehead will get some nut shrinkage and bacne" and "Yum. Johnny Hulk tasted like fresh gorilla", Snooki should really change her name to Dickens or Shakespeare.
But although she's now a famous author, Snooki is still the same old drunk broad, as she told Ellen DeGeneres this week.
Responding to a question by Ellen that she once said if she didn't black out then it was a good night, Snooki answered: "Yes, because I want to remember my night and sometimes I just don't. It sucks. So you're like, 'What did I do? Why did I wake up in a garbage can?'"
When Ellen asked how often that happens, Snooki said "like once a month".
It's a wonder this chick even remembers her name at all.
