Jersey Shore's Snooki is all grown up -- and looking more like a hottie than the self-proclaimed meatball she's known as on the MTV reality show that made her famous.
The pint-sized celebrity was at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood recently to provide support to AdELA, a new artist in Snooki's musical stable, who performed at Passion Nightclub.
That's right, folks. Nicole Polizzi is now a music mogul with her own label -- Team Snooki Music.

Polizzi's entourage, which included AdELA, Nicole's father, and a half-dozen associates, made their way to Martorano's Italian-American Kitchen for a preshow bite.
Word has it "Team Snooki" supped on salads, veal picatta, Martorano's original eggplant stack, seafood pescatore, chicken cutlet parmigiana, and eggplant parmigiana -- all served family style! And, of course, our lovable Jersey Shore meatball met (and devoured) Martorano's famous meatball salad. It was, as they say, a match made in heaven!
