“All right, stop, collaborate, and listen / Ice is back with my brand new” prediction â€” and it’s all about teen pop sensation Justin Bieber!
Rob Van Winkle, perhaps best known as the man who brought us cheesy ’90s anthems like “Ice Ice Baby” and “Ninja Rap,” is about to incur the wrath of a legion of Beliebers after adding his two pennies to the debate over the enduring appeal of The Biebs.
If you ask Rob, the appeal won’t endure much longer.
Though Justin, 17, has notched multiple hit songs and albums, a blockbuster movie, and top-selling perfume for women, and a Grammy nomination in just two years, Rob predicts the Canadian heartthrob’s popularity will soon begin to wane. After all, Vanilla Ice was 1990’s Billboard darling; these days his main source of income is a show on the Do-It-Yourself Network.
“I mean, I did ‘Ice Ice Baby’ when I was 16. So I can kind of relate a bit. 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,” the one-hit wonder told The Huffington Post this week.
“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.”
Hmmm…bitter much? Think Rob’s got a point.
