Snooki and Lady Gaga React to Hurricane Sandy Devastation
Hurricane Sandy hammered the East Coast on Monday night, leaving billions of dollars worth of destruction in its wake. Some of the hardest hit areas include Seaside, Snooki's “second home” on the Jersey Shore, and one of Lady Gaga's favorite spots, Atlantic City.
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, was heartbroken over the destruction in Seaside. She told MTV News, "Sandy destroyed Seaside -- our second home. It's devastating to see our Boardwalk and favorite spots ruined. My prayers go out to everyone affected by the storm."
Her “Jersey Shore” castmates were upset too. Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio said, "My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy, especially our friends and family in Seaside Heights, NJ, and a huge thank you to all the men and women who have been working around the clock to protect and help everyone, true heroes!”
Jenni "JWOWW" Farley added, "This is a devastating time for the east coast and my prayers are with everyone. I am thinking about my second family at the Jersey Shore and know that we can rebuild and come back stronger."
Lady Gaga said she feels like her "entire childhood is underwater." She wrote on LittleMonsters.com, “i'm not sure where to put these feelings. im so sad. i feel like my entire childhood is underwater. the boardwalk in atlantic city, my old Apts in Brooklyn and LES.”
The “Born This Way” singer continued, “all the bars and friends. im just so sad. i know it will be ok. im not sure why i feel this way. maybe homesickness, or maybe its easier to be a gypsy if you know your soul grows from somewhere great. and that great place protected me my whole life, now parts are destroyed. just very sad and pensive today. thinking of everyone today.”
