It seems that Jersey Shore cast mates want to do more with their lives than drink and smush. Both Ronnie and Pauly D have launched musical careers; Pauly D as a DJ and Ronnie as a singer.
Pauly D’s spin off of Jersey Shore, The Pauly D Project, follows him on his journey to Vegas where he is trying to make it at The Palms. The show brings a new side of the Jersey Shore cast mate, but many things, according to The Huffington Post, still remain the same. The quest for DTF girls is still on and his GTL lifestyle in full swing.
However, Pauly D seems serious about his career move. He stated in The Huffington Post: ”I really enjoy filming and television, but DJing is where my heart’s at. I just love music, and I love to make people happy with my music. I’ve spent my whole life listening to music, in my car or in my room. I just love it.”
He also commented that he is excited to return to the Shore House for Season 6, and gave a shout out to pregnant Snooki and current rehab patient, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. As for his DJ career, ratings and viewership for his spinoff continue to drop as some say they do not feel his new gang is as entertaining as the original Jersey Shore housemates.
New York Times writer Mike Hale criticized: “Paul DelVecchio, aka Pauly D of MTV’s Jersey Shore, belongs to a select category of performers who have turned their haircuts into careers.”
Ronnie does not seem to be doing much better. According to TMZ, he recently launched a new single named “How the F%$K We Gettin’ Home?” which includes many inspiring lyrics such as “we don’t take it easy/ someone take my keys please/ I dont think I’m able to drive.” TMZ aptly includes what should be a warning label on his CD, titled “Sing Responsibly.” Vinny also released “Rack City Mix,” a single that received an equal amount of negative press.
Snooki and JWOWW even have a spin off coming to TV’s near you on June 21st. However, considering the “rave reviews” they have been receiving every time they step out of Jersey, it seems that the housemates should stick to what they know.Tags: Jersey Shore, Pauly D, Snooki, The Situation
