Rick Scott Meets Vanilla Ice, but Fails to Get His Coveted Endorsement

Florida's heated gubernatorial race could use some chilling out, and there's nothing cooler than Vanilla Ice. Am I right, kids?

Well Rick Scott recently met Florida's greatest white rapper, but Mr. Ice was quick to point out that the meeting did not equal an endorsement.

Ice, real name Rob Van Winkle, performed last night at a tourism event held by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach. In fact, he was joined by the Palm Beach Symphony and Ballet Palm Beach. Yes ... this is Palm Beach's idea of culture. We'd laugh, but then again we wouldn't be surprised if our New World Symphony somehow ended up performing with Pitbull, so we don't want to judge too harshly.

At the event Ice met Mr. Freeze Gov. Scott, and the pair was all smiles for a photo that ended up on Ice's Twitter.

Ice, however, was quick to affirm that it didn't mean he was putting his weight behind Scott over Charlie Crist.

Ice, however, amended that last statement however, because, you know, he's obviously a feminist.

No word on how fellow Florida resident Scott Stapp, former lead singer of Creed, plans to vote.
