If you’d predicted this seven years ago, there’s a good chance you’re being put on trial for witchcraft at the moment, but the good news is – you were right!

Pauly D and Snooki are still in the news in 2016.

Of course, he’s still clinging to the bottom rung of the D-list ladder because he’s dating some other forgotten relic from the early 2000s, and Snooks is still with us because people think she had work done, but hey, they’re still famous … -ish.

Anyway, we suppose it’s a testament to Snooki’s enduring popularity that she has nearly 10 million Instagram followers, many of whom are downright obsessed a pic she posted yesterday.

For most celebs, that would mean she posted a nude.

For Snooki, it just means her face looks a little different:

The Hollywood Gossip

Okay, maybe her face looks a lot different, but no one seems to be able to put their finger on exactly why.

In fact, we haven’t seen the Internet lose its sh-t debating a photo like this since The Dress.

Some say she’s had her lips plumped.

Others just claim she’s lost an incredible amount of weight.

Very few, however, are considering the fact that people’s appearances tend to change naturally with age.

Snooki is one of few female celebs who’s really never been involved in a plastic surgery rumor, so maybe she’s just due for one?

It’s important to remember that Snooki has changed a lot since the days when she used to get drunk and dance around for our amusement like the Smithers to our Mr. Burns, and this may be the result.

Whatever she’s doing, it seems to be working.

The pic has 40,000 likes, and we counted two marriage proposals in the comments.
