Snooki Paid $32,000 to Speak at Rutgers University

Snooki Speaking Engagement Costs $32,000

Who knew the words of Jersey Shore's favorite guidette would cost this much? Rutgers University paid Snooki a hefty $32,000 for giving two question and answer sessions last night that were apparently sold out, reports the New York Daily News. Wearing a black dress and a gold headband and belt, Snooki dispensed gems of advice such as "Study hard . . . but party harder." Further, when asked about her biggest inspiration, she replied, "I'd honestly say, being tan . . . When you're tan, you feel better."

Sadly, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison is going to be paid less than Snooki to speak at the school. Toni is going to be paid $30,000 to speak at the school's commencement in May. Do you think Snooki was overpaid?
