Wetpaint Entertainment: What do you think of all the attention you’re getting for your weight?
Snooki: Honestly I didn’t lose the weight to get attention. It’s kind of annoying because everyone’s like, oh you lost it because all the [criticism from] bloggers, it just got to you. And I’m like honestly? I’m probably the one celebrity that doesn’t give a crap what anyone says about me. I lost the weight for myself.
In high school growing up I did gymnastics, cheer-leading, I was always in really good shape. I had really good muscle tone, I had like zero body fat. After I turned 21, I just didn’t care, I went crazy, I started drinking. And then I just looked at the pictures and I’m like, wow I really lost myself. Just to get back into that routine and just see how I was when I was 18, I feel amazing.
