Lil Wayne Versus Jersey Shore
Lil Wayne gets screwed; Jersey Shore goes abroad.
To quote one of the current American Idol judges, “There’s something wrong with the world today. I don’t know what it is.” Today it was announced [Lil Wayne got screwed] that the full cast of Jersey Shore has signed on for another season. That we are getting another season of The Situation, Pauly D, Snooki, JWOWW and whoever the hell else inhabits this cesspool is not shocking. What is a little shocking is that they will be shooting some or all of the season in Florence, Italy.
Florence is one of the cultural hubs of the world. It is a center for music, literature, art and food and now, apparently, also gym, tanning and laundry. As a further announcement it was also reported that there will be two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. One will star DJ Pauly D and the other will feature Snooki and JWOWW. Apparently we have so much Jersey Shore we can’t contain it within our borders and we must ship it overseas and expose them to our garbage.
What makes all of this interesting to me is that also today it was announced that Lil Wayne will not be able to tour the U.K. because they have refused to grant him a visa based on his past criminal record. I understand that the difference is the Jersey Shore is only guilty of being a crappy TV show about people who you wouldn’t want anywhere near any member of your family while Wayne is an actual convicted felon.
I would argue that the antics of the cast members of Jersey Shore are far more dangerous than anything Lil Wayne is going to do. At the worst Lil Wayne is going to get high and fall asleep somewhere. The Situation might get drunk; beat up a girl then knock-up some poor suspecting tourist who is too wasted to realize what is going on. I think you should also look at the past accomplishments. The Jersey Shore crew is basically famous for being douchebags. Wayne has sold millions of records and is considered by many to be one of the most important voices in hip hop.
So the sign at the airport basically says: douchebags welcome, real artists who might get high, stay out! Sometimes it is a mad world and soon it will be a mad world with a whole lot more of Jersey Shore in it.
