So remember in Ice Ice Baby when Vanilla Ice sang Rollin in my 5.0, well the two have been reunited after almost two decades. Sadly though there is no word if he went rollin’ in it on A1A Beachfront Ave checking out if girls were hot wearing less than bikinis.
Really there isn’t much more to the post than just seeing him in that picture with the Ford got me all nostalgic for my days in Miami singing Ice Ice Baby with my friends on the top our lungs. That’s just how we rolled in the 305 back then!
All right stop, collaborate and listen because for years people have contemplated the meaning behind songs like The Beatles’ Lucy in the Sky in Diamonds, The Vapors’ Turning Japanese and Phil Collins’ In the Air Tonight, but now thanks to Adam Scott there is one song we no longer have to wonder about.
Yesterday the Parks and Rec star basically told Conan O’Brien, “if there was a problem, yo, I’ll solve it” and he solved the meaning behind Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby. Hearing him taking the mic like a vandal was as if he was killin’ my brain like a poisonous mushroom.
So now that we know what Rob Van Winkle meant, let’s get the party jumping with the bass kicked in and sing the #1 song on the top of our lungs like its 1990 all over again!
Word to your mother…
Vanilla Ice just played at The HGTV Lodge at CMA Fest and he decided to give his biggest hit a country beat. The host of The Vanilla Ice Project sang Ice Ice Baby in a way that has never been done before and in a way he never thought he would do it. Even though he thought it was crazy do mix up his chart topper, I think it is crazy dope. Seriously he’s done rap, he done punk, now I think it is time for him to try country. Wouldn’t that be cool as ice?
Seriously am I the only who can’t stop singing this song at the top of my lungs? Granted this was my anthem when I went to the University of Miami because in a way for the longest time, it was the city’s song for people who were sick of Gloria Estefan. Actually to be honest I am still sick of her.
Now back to Rob Van Winkle, you can see him return to the big screen in Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy on Friday.
In the early ’90s Vanilla Ice was the first chart topping white rapper with Ice Ice Baby then he finished the century as a hard core rocker. Now in the year 2012 he is changing his tune once again to be an Indie Rocker. The Soup got an exclusive performance with the DIY host at a coffee shop and I can’t wait to go buy his album like all those other hipsters. Seriously don’t you like the way he changed up his biggest hit. Seriously doesn’t it grab hold of you tightly?
You can learn even more about his drastic musical change tomorrow when the full segment airs at 10p on E!’s The Soup.
Adam Richman travels down in The Keys tonight at 9p for Travel Channel’s Man v Food and Florida staple Vanilla Ice is there to help him learn a few things about the vacation spot. Not only did the host of DIY Network’s The Vanilla Ice Project teach the man who is not a afraid of any eating challenge how to dress for the weather, but he also taught him what is a true Key Lime Pie is. The one thing I learned about the yummy dessert when I lived in Miami, is that a true Key Lime Pie is yellow like the fruit itself. Did you know that?
I can’t wait to see what else the Ice Ice Baby teaches him and what food eating challenge Adam gobbles down on Man v Food. Team Man!!!
Vanilla Ice is in England competing on Dancing on Ice and he told ITV’s Daybreak that he had a little mishap this week. The rapper went down on the Ice Ice Baby during a rehearsal and was knocked unconscious. Thankfully he is OK minus some bruising to his face, so he will be able to compete on the show again this weekend and sing Play That Funky Music again really soon.
Go White Boy, Go White Boy, Go!
Vanilla Ice attended the Tag Heuers 150th Anniversary Celebration and the rapper turned rocker really cleaned up well. Robert Van Winkle really looks Cool as Ice with their Ice Ice Ice Baby on his arm and a suit. Seriously I never realized what a handsome man he really is until these pictures. I think I might have to blow the dust off of my To The Extreme CD and listen to it again. Don’t judge me, even Glee admitted he is good!
Virgin Mobile has created a site that Right Music Wrongs and they are starting with Vanilla Ice and Ice Ice Baby. Rob Van Winkle made a video apologizing for the song that made him a household name and I don’t think he needed to say sorry for the song. I don’t care what he says, I still love that song!
So stop collaborate and listen to Ice Ice Baby with me!!!
BTW I like the idea of Right Music Wrongs and agree with some of the songs that we were wronged, just not Ice Ice Baby!!!
