Speaking from experience, the 'Ice Ice Baby' rapper predicts that the 'Baby' hitmaker will last only for a few years before something new comes along.
Vanilla Ice has a warning for teen sensation Justin Bieber. Having experienced fame in his teen years with one-hit wonder "Ice Ice Baby", the 43-year-old rapper/actor makes a prediction that the "Baby" hitmaker will be forgotten in a few years when something new comes along.
The MC, whose real name is Rob Van Winkle, told the Huffington Post, "I mean, I did 'Ice Ice Baby' when I was 16. So I can kind of relate a bit." He added, "Sold over a hundred 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," he continued on. "You know, 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."
Justin himself recently nailed a Best Male Video nomination for "U Smile" at the upcoming 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. He is up against Cee-Lo Green, Eminem, Bruno Mars and Kanye West. The singer boyfriend of Selena Gomez is also preparing for his South America tour, which will be kicked off in October.
