Snooki To Help Ring In The New Year In Times Square

NEW YORK (AP) — You know it’s New Year’s Eve when the Snooki drops — or at least you will this year.

MTV says it plans to put “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi inside a ball that drops in Times Square to ring in 2011 as part of its “MTV New Year’s Bash” special.

The network says other stars from its hit reality show “Jersey Shore” will lead the crowd in a collective fist pump in hopes of breaking the Guinness world record.

The live hourlong show will also include a pair of performances from Flo Rida and a recap of the year in entertainment.

Comedian Whitney Cummings will host the special, set to air Dec. 31 from 11 p.m. to midnight.

    You know a society is about to crumble when it admires something along the lines of a “Snooki”.

    It’s really not that hard to figure out why the rest of the world hates America and basically thinks we are one big joke. We are crass and tasteless.
