Earlier this month we learned the semi-tragic news that the guys from MTV‘s Jersey Shore will be appearing in an upcoming issue of GQ magazine and today we learn that the whole cast will be featured in an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine. The JS cast posed for photographer Terry Richardson on the beach in Seaside Heights, NJ this weekend for a photospread that will be featured in RS:
Their lives consist of nothing more strenuous than plenty of GLT – that’s a morning routine of Gym, Tanning, and Laundry for the uninitiated. But it seems living their lives on the beach has paid off for the cast members of Jersey Shore, as they were photographed for the front cover of prestigious magazine Rolling Stone. The shoot took place during sunset with legendary photographer Terry Richardson. It’s obviously a sign that they have made it – it’s the second time he’s photographed them. Snooki showed off her curves in a daring cut-out one-piece, which struggled to contain the 21-year-old’s buxom curves. Her cast-mates were weighed down with jewellery and lashings of make-up and hair gel as they struck their most outrageous poses. The TV show, which follows the eight housemates as they spend the summer holidaying on the New Jersey Shore, has become one of the most popular reality shows of the moment. Hook-ups and bust-ups ensue along with plenty of clubbing in the bars along the coastline. But the show has had its share of controversy too – some have taken offense to the cast’s use of the words ‘guido’ and ‘guidette’, which many view as slurs against Italian-Americans. And there was public uproar over a scene in which Snooki was punched in the face by a male bar patron, which prompted MTV to black out the footage. The castmates are already capitalising on the success of the show, with Snooki landing a guest spot as a presenter a the MTV Movie Awards, while 23-year-old JWoww has just unveiled her own fashion line, Filthy Couture. The second season of MTV’s Jersey Shore airs in the U.S. on July 29.
I’m gonna take a wild stab in the dark and guess that these jokers will be featured in the issue of Rolling Stone that will be timed perfectly with the release of the second season of their show. I mean, I get that the cast of Jersey Shore will be coming at us again on MTV this Summer but is it really necessary for them to infiltrate our magazines as well? We’ve already seen them in the pages of Interview magazine … so now we have GQ and Rolling Stone to look forward to? I suppose they do need to strike while the iron is hot and the demand still seems to be high but I’m kinda over the hoopla of the show and these people already. But, I fear, the focus on Jersey Shore will get even more intense when the second season starts at the end of next month. Are you ready for it?
