Vanilla Ice Booked For Glastonbury Festival
Wellington resident Rob Van Winkle (Vanilla Ice to you) is back with a brand new invention. Well, it's kind of brand new. And kind of his invention. Either way, this collaboration with the Irish pop duo Jedward (teenage twins named John and Edward) went to number two on the UK charts. And the subsequent resurgence in Ice's popularity landed him a spot at the Glastonbury Festival, playing alongside U2 and Muse.
I called Rob for his thoughts on the topic (when the mashup first exploded, he told me via text "after all these years, who would have guessed? LOL") but he wasn't available. He is right where you probably guessed, in Dubai.
