Vanilla Ice Predicts Flame-Out of Justin Bieber

by at . Comments

Vanilla Ice (real name Robert Van Winkle) is a man who has been to the top of the music world, only to become a national joke 15 minutes later.

His message to Justin Bieber: You're next!

Ice is warning the Bieb to enjoy his success while he can because his fame will be fleeting, and sustaining this kind of success is impossible.

Justin Biebs

From one doomed pop-cultural fad to another?

Vanilla, who produced the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts, tells the Huffington Post, "I mean, I did 'Ice Ice Baby' when I was 16."

"So, yeah, I can kind of relate a bit. Sold over 100 million records. I had a weekend that lasted about three years, and I didn't know who I was."

"What's my purpose in life? So my prediction about Bieber is that he's going to go through one of those weekends that lasts a few years."

"He's had such success as a child act. But soon something else new will come along and he'll be forgotten," Ice laments, adding, "he can try to put all the pieces back together, so it's going to be entertaining to watch."

As is his custom, Ice is a bit confused about his own biography for one. "Ice Ice Baby" became a hit in 1990, when he was 23 years old.

Secondly, Vanilla Ice is the epitome of a flash in the pan, a one-hit wonder, a gimmick with no real substance. Is Justin Bieber the same?

We suspect his 11 million Twitter fans think not.

In reference to the article, the 11 million twitter fans don't mean anything since when Vanilla Ice was on top Twitter did not exist. If Twitter did exist let alone the magnitude of the internet today, both would have a similar audience following. Come, Ice Ice Baby to Baby Baby, Oh Baby. We all know where Justin Bieber is going...

Vanilla is correct he wrote the song when he was 16 but he was 23 years old when Ice Ice Baby was released in the fall of 1990, therefore his fame began at the age of 23 not as early as Bieber. Bieber has a good 2 years left before he has to convert into an adult artist. Timberlake was able to do it in 2002. Only time can tell if his mid teen audience will follow him in the later years of life.

Actually, Vanilla Ice wrote "Ice Ice Baby" at 16, like he said. But either way, Justin Bieber has way more than one hit, and this guy is just mad because his fifteen minutes of fame is up.

It's hilariously ironic to hear this from Vanilla Ice, but he knows the game. Although it sounds like envy, he's right. When Bieber finally goes through puberty and starts to look & sound like someone's dad, those little girls will desert him like rats on a sinking ship. I hope he's been smart enough to save some money from his "long weekend."

Vanilla ice is full of crap. He was a fake. He lied about growing up in da hood. He stole others music and claimed it as his. Like I said.,,,a fake. Vanilla Ice wasnt even near the same class as Justin. One thiing you can say about the kid, he's real, and got a lot more maturity than I had at his age. So Ice.,,, back off, you are a has been who really never was anyone of any significance at all.
