Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may be known for her hair pouf, but when she stepped out on the white carpet at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, she debuted brand new bangs, saying it’s time for her to kiss the signature look goodbye. “It’s definitely a new look, but I think it’s a good look that suits me,” Polizzi told PEOPLE. “I want to look more mature. The pouf—I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, so why not switch it up?” Even though Snooki’s new hair looks great, the Jersey Shore reality starlet, 23, says the adjustment is taking a moment. “Now I have bangs,” she says. “I haven’t had bangs since I was seven, so this is weird. To be honest with you, I went out right after I got this hair done, and no one recognized me.” –Dahvi Shira

She still looks like a meatball. You just want to roll her.

I got my bangs done 18 months ago. She’s behind track.

Is it me or does SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’s Bobby Moynihan do a better Snooki than Snooki? Jus’ sayin’…

I wouldn’t recognize you with a pouf, without a pouf, as I would hardly call you famous. Just like the Kardashians…. being on reality tv for doing absolutely nothing… does not make a star.

Snooki commented on last weeks show that she was not ‘white’ but ‘tan.’ She said she checks the ‘other’ box on surveys/job applications and list ‘tan’ as her race. She said it has cost her a few jobs, including one at a tanning salon.
