Vanilla Ice Says He Will Be Entertained By Justin Bieber's Downfall
Rapper Vanilla Ice has warned teen sensation Justin Bieber to enjoy his success while he can because his fame won't last.
The one-time hitmaker, real name Rob Van Winkle, was catapulted to fame thanks to his hit 1990 track "Ice Ice Baby" - the first hip-hop single to top the U.S. Billboard charts.
But the star's fame was fleeting and he struggled to maintain his success - and Ice predicts the "Baby" hitmaker will suffer the same fate.
He tells the Huffington Post, "I mean, I did 'Ice Ice Baby' when I was 16. So I can kind of relate a bit. Sold over a 100 million records. And 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 because he's had such success as a child act.
"Then something else new will come along and he'll be forgotten and he can try to put all the pieces back together, so it's going to be entertaining to watch."
