With the Video Music Awards preparing to air executives at MTV weren’t about to have their biggest stars missing from the event so they sent a private jet to New Jersey where it picked up Jersey Shore stars Snooki, Vinny, Denna and Sammi, whisking them away to Los Angeles for the event.
The reality TV stars flew out of New Jersey on Saturday night, narrowly missing Hurricane Irene which closed down local airports.
As for the rest of the cast, Pauly D was in Oklahoma DJing while Jwoww was hosting a Las Vegas party at PURE.
The photo shown above arrived with a tweet from cast member Vinny who wrote:
“Had to take the PJ to the #VMAs to beat the storm.East coast you will be fine just chill in and laugh while it passes.”
I’m not sure what’s more scary, the hurricane or Vinny sitting behind the controls of a multi-million dollar piece of equipment that flies.
While the cast of Jersey Shore will be in attendance, there’s one singer who will likely be missing the show, Adam Levine of Maroon 5. Levine attacked the video music awards show over the weekend, claiming that MTV shouldn’t host a show when they no longer care about music.
It’s just too bad Snooki and her cohorts made it out of New Jersey, the show would have been a tiny bit better if we could have one MTV event without them.
