The rapper Vanilla Ice believes that Justin Bieber success will soon be fading away. The American one time hit maker says “It’s going to be entertaining to watch”, Access Hollywood reports.
Vanilla Ice, (real name Rob Mathew Van Winkle) thinks that the fame pattern that pop sensation Justin Bieber is following is too familiar. He believes that it will have the same abrupt falling as his career. “I did ‘Ice Ice Baby’ when I was 16. So I can kind of relate a bit,” the rapper says. His hit was released in 1990 and it sold “over one hundred million records And I had a weekend that lasted about three years, and I didn’t know who I was, what [was] my purpose in life.” Vanilla Ice told Huffington Post that Justin Bieber will enjoy his success for some time, but one day a new star will rise and take his place. “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”.
Justin Bieber, 18, was voted the one of the most powerful celebrity this year. He almost had the highest income of all the celebrities in the last 12 months and he has developed multiple talents. He has been releasing hit after hit after hit; he has made numerous TV apparitions; he has launched a nail polish line and two fragrances for his fans, products that are selling like hotcakes. In addition to that, he is very much in love with his girlfriend, hot Latina Selena Gomez and their relationship is regarded as incredibly popular.
On the other hand, Van Winkle did not stop at “Ice, ice baby” even though he never got to equal the hit’s success in the following career years. After ending his collaboration with SBK, which made him adopt a more commercial look and added fake events in his biography and after an attempted suicide, the rapper changed his style dramatically. He turned to a rock sound in 1998. Hard to Swallow, marking his return, went Gold. This year, he will release a new album, WTF – Wisdom, Tenacity and Focus.
