Vanilla Ice is being named citizen of the year by the South Florida town where he lives, according to reports.
The 1990s one-hit-wonder, best known for his hit single “Ice Ice Baby,” will be named “Outstanding Citizen of the Year” by Wellington’s chamber of commerce during an event on Feb. 26.
Officials said they will honor the rapper, whose given name is Rob Van Winkle, for his “spirit of giving and dedication” to Wellington, the Associated Press reported.
Mr. Van Winkle has contributed to several local charities in Wellington and also films his DIY Network reality show “The Vanilla Ice Project” there. -Washington Times
I mean…good for V-Ice, but how bad is Wellington Florida doing? You already have a state FULL of crazies and you name Vanilla Ice “Most outstanding”? I got news for you Florida that’s like giving the title of warden to one of the crazies at the asylum. Again, good for Vanilla Ice. I have had nothing but love for the one-hit wonder since he joined forces with the Insane Clown Posse. Keep up what you are doing and never, ever, make a movie again.
