    June 9th: Vanilla Ice



    From the official site:

    In 1990, the hit single "Ice Ice Baby" and its accompanying album, To the Extreme, made Vanilla Ice the second white rapper to top the charts (the other being the Beastie Boys). This Miami-born rapper went on to have To the Extreme top the charts, spending 16 weeks at number one and selling over seven million copies. Ice began filming a feature film, Cool As Ice, in the spring of 1990, but by the time the film came out in the fall, the Ice was melting.

    Vanilla Ice re-emerged in 1994 with Mind Blowing, which featured a new funk influence but was not as commercially successful as To the Extreme. That same year, after a failed suicide attempt, Ice got involved in Motocross -- a sport he continues to be involved in. Ice is currently on tour to support his new album, Platinum Underground.
    "George Oscar Bluth II, aka GOB, featured magician in the best selling videotape, "Girls With Low Self Esteem" invites you to enter his world.

    I actually like Vanilla Ice....a friend of mine saw him walking thru a casino in Tunica and he was very friendly with people that came up to him. I look forward to seeing him perform.

    Well on the official site 41% of the votes so far are saying that they want him to win.

    Okay, clearly the only song he can perform has to be "Ice Ice Baby." But didn't he swear he'd never perform this song, and throw a shiznit fit over it on MTV like a million years ago (what was it, he destroyed the tape of the video and nearly killed Janeane Garofalo in the process). And then on Surreal Life he freaked out over seeing old pictures of himself. So is he eating a double dose of crow now, or is he going to go totally aggro and start pummeling people in the audience or what?

    I guess if you can't beat 'em..then join 'em.........Isn't it kinda like Gilligan or Urkel? They played those parts....made money off of their characters but when they grew up or try to moved on, the public wouldn't let them and then forever they are known as only those characters. Its like a interview I read yesterday about the late Anne Bancroft. She thought there were many other roles she would like to be remembered for but the one most people focused on was Mrs. Robinson. She realized she didn't have a choice in what the people had "decided" she would be remembered for........

    Excellent point...I was thinking the same thing myself but you beat me to the post.

    I guess Ice must be really hurting for cash to stoop this low..... or maybe Mr. Van Winkle finally woke up and realized that the only way he's ever going to make an easy buck in this world is by doing the Vanilla Ice thing.

    If the audience is once again filled with gen-X'ers and teeny boppers, he may go over big with them. He's got a good shot of winning tonight.
