Rapper Vanilla Ice is giving his piece to his earlier comments that Justin Bieber will be forgotten.
Telling to Huffington Post, the “Ice Ice Baby” hitmaker said that he is not bad-mouthing Bieber. “That’s just not true,” he insisted. “I’m friends with him and I’ve hung out with him. I know his parents, they’re very nice.”
I don’t think he’s going to be forgotten. I don’t think he’s going to be forgotten at all,” the 43-year-old, whose real name is Rob Van Winkle, stated. “In fact, I think he’ll be remembered forever. I wish him all the best. I don’t know how it all got so twisted around. I think he’s talented.”
“What you guys might have picked up on is that I was giving him advice – when you’re a child star, it’s hard to figure out your purpose in life. Not just with me, but if you follow other child stars, like Britney Spears, who’s now doing great. There’s a transitional period after such tremendous success that you have to figure out your life. There’s a real life after all this entertainment.”
At the end of his statement, the MC stressed, “I wasn’t trying to say anything bad about anybody. I never bad-mouth him at all. It’s been twisted into something bad, and once that’s out there it takes on a life of its own. I don’t have any reason to hate anybody; I believe in good karma and spreading good energy.”
