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.


Everyone needs to lay off beiber. Hes just a kid and a very smart one at that, and will probably have a healthy career and if not, hes had one hell of a run with like a zillion fans and haters, but at least people took notice. Ice shouldnt be bitter because his day in the sun is over. If we are comparing people, justin actually reminds me of (guys, this is just MY opinion so dont hate and freak out, lol) a young justin timberlake with his slew of young female admirers, ability to become the "it" person in hollywood, his brains and his sweet personality. Hes always got the young power couple thing goin on with selena. Adorable couple! Oh ya, I too cannot stand nicki minja


Nicki Minaj is NOT a gimmick u idiot! She strived for this shit & actually has talent! JB has talent too but I honestly think that one day he'll fall out his success & become a nobody. JB just posted vids but didn't really want to be famous. Nicki Minaj DID. Sorry JB fans but his time is almost over & you kno it.


I couldn't agree more if I tried but agree with that with all of new singers because all they do scream and copycat everyone else.


those same people who now say "oh justin bieber isn't like vanilla ice, he's waaaaaaay better" will be saying in ten years "oh but _________ isn't like justin bieber was, he's waaaaaaaaaaaay better"


Vanilla Ice was not a one hit wonder, he was a one hit loser and this comments proves it. JB is a kid, and true to who he is, I think he has already had more then one lame hit and he remains to be who he is, as opposed to VI who tried to be a rapper and failed miserably. This is the only way he can get any press, yes the kid will probably fall out of favor as they all do, but I think he is surrounded by better people and they probably said the same thing about Timberlake...... Get over it Ice and dont be jealous of a kid.


The difference is that Justin Bieber actually has talent...


I actually thought he should have said that about Nicki Minaj rather Justin Bieber. No he is not original by any means but he has talent and substance. Nicki Minaj on the other hand is more of a gimmick like Vanilla Ice was and they were both successful at such. Just as he stole a lot of his music she has stolen much of her image from Lil Kim and Lady GaGa. She has combined Pop & Hip Hop but gets nominated as a hip hop artist. She is a rapper that lip syncs and I believe she will be a joke in the years to come just as Vanilla Ice. Their music has no substance. Like what the hell are they talking about?


While I do think Justin Bieber is in fact just another kinda talented pop kid and his fame will fade, I don't think Vanilla Ice is one to talk. That really cool riff in "Ice Ice Baby" that was so catchy and made the song a hit? He stole it (without payment if I recall) from the very good Queen/David Bowie song Under Pressure. His only other hit "Play that Funky Music (White Boy)" lifted it's entire chorus and music from the hit song with the same name. If I remember right he was sued over these. Justin Bieber may be an annoying little semi talented flash in the pan but Vanilla Ice basically stole the music of really talented others in order to try to become a star. And it worked for about 3 seconds. At least Bieber did not steal music from others, though he is still not original in any way.


I think vanilla ice look's at justin and jelousy is there because justin is everything that he could of/ wanted to be! Vanilla ice want's to be put back in the crowd, what other way to do that than take the mic out of the world's most famouse teenager!


dont compare any stars with any others stars..
And justin is doing hardwork for he's fans and making advertising, making a beautiful girlfriend and marketing its first step of justin to the bright future..
So..i dnt say that you leave justin alone and dont judge justin and all that..
But just think deeper and speak better
love you all guys
