Nikki Blonsky's career as a shoe salesgirl was glorious and incredibly brief. When word hit the web that the Hairspray actress had taken a job as a shoe salesgirl, many were wondering what exactly had happened to prompt Nikki to make such a career change.

Luckily we have the phenomenon known as Twitter to get the story straight from the actress herself!

Word had it Nikki Blonsky took a job at a friend's store and by all reported accounts was a stellar salesgirl. "She's really sweet to the little kids that come in the store," a source told E! News. "She even sings and dances for the customers, busting out the tunes from Hairspray."

Unfortunately the rumor mill had it wrong. Nikki Blonsky has not hit hard times in Hollywood and has not made a permanent career change, nor was there any singing involved in the shoe sales.

Looking to dispel rumors, she tweeted, "So much false reporting! & false quotes. NO career changing! just experimented 4 (for) a day working (at) a friends boutique 2 see what it was like."

As for her on-the-job performance, Nikki Blonsky wrote, "NO singing or dancing happened, but it was fun trying something new for a day."

A shame, don't you think? Nikki Blonsky singing and shoe shopping sounded fabulous!
