Vanilla Ice apologises for Ice Ice Baby - March 23rd 2009, 06:27 AM

Source here: http://www.watoday.com.au/entertainm...0311-8uks.html

(It's also all over the entertainment news)


So what do you think? Does he really need to apologise? I could think of some worse songs after all.

Satisfaction by Benny Benassi = example -.-

Re: Vanilla Ice apologises for Ice Ice Baby - March 23rd 2009, 06:45 AM

He's been basically apologizing about it for years. It was one of those songs that both makes and breaks a career. He doesn't need to apologize obviously, but he should since he sees something wrong with what he did. I actually agree with him in that he should apologize. If I felt that I made a negative impact on a lot of lives through my (what sounds like insincere) art I would be apologizing too.

There are a multitude of other artists that should be called out and expected to apologize for allowing record companies to manipulate them into helping to water down music. There's nothing I hate more than soulless music and that is what is being pumped out through a lot of these big record labels. I'm glad this hasn't happened as much with other art forms.


Searching my heart for its true sorrow,
This is the thing I find it to be:
That I am weary of words and people,
Sick of the city, wanting the sea;

Wanting the sticky, salty sweetness
Of the strong wind and shattered spray;
Wanting the loud sound and the soft sound
Of the big surf that breaks all day.

-Exiled, Edna St. Vincent Millay

Of course he doesn't need to apologise - it's just getting him some new publicity

I agree with Stephanie. He doesn't need to say sorry for releasing a song that started a craze which seems to be what he is apologising for because he isn't the first person to do it. He's just doing it for the sake of publicity.

WHO GIVES A SHIT!
It's just a freaking song! Half of the current pop artists should be shot in my opinion! & I've seen more horrible styles than his.

Yay cynicism isn't dead yet

I agree he's only doing it for the publicity
All current pop should be purged from the charts since it's not too far from porn most of the time

one does not need to parade one's body or have provocative or suggestive lyrics if one has skill

Agreed.

Anyways, yeah, he is doing it for publicity and looks like it worked.

If he feels he has done something wrong, then I guess it's okay for him to apologise. I mean he doesn't need to if people didn't want to hear it they wouldn't listen to it in the first place.

Indeed. Personally, I find it to be an entertaining song, but I guess I could see why, 19 years later, he wouldn't be so proud of it.

Yay, more publicity. Couldn't he just find some other way to get publicity instead of whining endlessly and assuming his song inspired a nation of gelled-hair, baggy pants, etc...? Compared to the other shit affectionately called "pop" or "rap" or "hip hop" or whatever the hell his fits in under, it's bearable compared to this modern-day shit.

Obviously he as nothing to apologize for, everyone knows the song - it was a success.
