Kid Rock: Justin Bieber is the new Vanilla Ice


Kid Rock is adamant Justin Bieber is heading towards a huge fall from grace, dismissing the pop star as the next Vanilla Ice.

The "Cowboy" hitmaker was asked his thoughts on the teen idol during a chat with shock jock Howard Stern on his radio show on Wednesday, and he insisted Bieber's fame will be short-lived.

Bing: Bieber involved in hit and run?

He said, "Tell me if this is wrong. Justin Bieber ... is 100 per cent like watching Vanilla Ice all over again. It's exactly the same. Well, as soon as Bieber has a hit, he'll be like Vanilla Ice.

"The kid's young. He's got some money. He's got the world in his hands. It's just kind of sad to see him go down this trajectory. It's gonna be a very long ride down. We all know the story. I kind of feel for the kid, to be honest with you."

Tell us on Facebook: Do you think Kid Rock is right?

Bieber has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent months -- he was slammed for being two hours late for a concert in London in March, and has been involved in a number of clashes with photographers.

Vanilla Ice hit the top of the charts with his single "Ice Ice Baby" in 1990, but struggled to maintain his success and fell out of the spotlight.

Music died with the advent of Rap and Hip Hop. Bunch of blacks grabbing their crotch and ranting about how tough they are.

I said the exact same thing.  He is a carbon copy of Vanilla Ice.  Will enjoy watching the little snot fall.

Kid Rock didn't show much talent at all til he changed genres. It blows my mind that his first CD went platinum 7 times given the material presented.

Kid Rock appeared on Stern BSing about a ton off things. I am no Bieber fan, but Rock just needs to worry about staying relevent himself. Most pop acts fizzle, Bieber will be no exception, but the Kid isn't exactly hot at all. People do not appear on Stern unless, they have already hit the zenith of their careers, so Kid is on the downward spiral.
