Vanilla Ice Gets A Job!

| Filed under: CanadialandMusic Minute

Vanilla Ice Is A Singing Judge

Vanilla Ice is not unemployed. He's actually just landed a pretty sweet gig!

No, it isn't a new album!

He has been hired as a judge on the new singing competition in Canada, Canada Sings!

Yeah, we're not sure if he's completely qualified for it either, but he is an entertaining guy who knows a bit about music and the industry (even if it's mostly how to avoid certain things.). And let's face it, who hasn't gone completely nuts over Ice Ice Baby at least once??

The other two judges are Jann Arden and Simple Plan's Pierre Bouvier, which we guess if the producers are into the idea of Vanilla Ice judging it isn't too out there for the Simple Plan frontman to be either. He IS pretty charming, and has few hits under his belt!

The main thing here is that all of the contestants have FUN and bring the talent, because some of the most talented people come from Canada!

We can't wait!

Vanilla, we have just one thing to say to you for encouragement: Go ninja, go ninja, go!

Maybe two: Good luck!!

Canadian followers! How do U feel about the judges selection??

    Great selection… Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette are a little busy now, but Jann Arden is great! Go Canada!!

    Hi Perez :) As a Canadian reader I think they could have chosen better judges. Don't get me wrong, I like Simple Plan but I have no clue who Jann Arden is. As for Vanilla Ice .. he was a one hit wonder, the producers could have at least chosen a current singer as apposed to retirees … Just saying!

    LOL and YOU're qualified for AI? LOL again.

    As a Canadian fan, I think its cool, from different kinda music, of course, Bieber, Celine, Shania, Alanis are busy, but as guest stars, who knows. Its gonna be Epic.. lol

    Jann Arden is an excellent choice. She's brutally honest and holds nothing back in interviews and shows. She's an absolute talent with a string of hits here. She's a bit chubby which is probably why she didn't break through in the US, but a delightful entertainer nonetheless. I remember seeing her in Mexico at a CIBC banking function and not only being entertained by her songs, but her stories as well. Mario, you should youtube her songs 'Could I Be Your Girl', 'Insensative', 'I Would Die For You', and 'The Sound Of' - these are a few of her big hits and still hold up today. Oh, and she's an out lesbian too - she's been out most of her career and no one seems to care or mind here. I can see her arguing with Vanilla Ice too - they come from differnt ends of the entertainment industry and it'll be interesting to see them butt heads. I see her as a Simon Cowel type personality but not as mean.

    Vanilla Ice is canadian? I guess we try to forget about that. Jann Arden on the other hand is a riot, she'll make a fantastic judge.

    Vanilla Ice has been making music non-stop since his Ice Ice Baby days. He's got numerous albums out they just werent as mainstream as the first one. He also runs a very successful home flipping business and recently had a show on the DIY network documenting it. I think you should get your information correct before you go stating that someone is unemployed. Sounds to me like he has been employed steadily since the 90's.

    Love Simple Plan….Been to many concerts where they had 3-4 opening bands who were nobodies at the time and now have songs on the radio…I think Pierre is a good Judge.

    He's as qualified as that idiot Chezza or whatever the fuck her name is.

    Last I knew Vanilla Ice had a pretty popular show on flipping houses on DIY Network. I'm not sure if it was picked up again, but I wouldn't exactly call him unemployed.
    Maybe, you should do a little bit of research before slamming people. It make you look like even more of an idiot than those plaid pants did.

    Vanilla already was not unemployed. He has his own TV show where he flips houses. It's doing very well apparently. Unless it's been cancelled very recently and I didn't hear about it.



  13. 13

    Ummmmm Vanilla Ice is PAID! he's worth is estimated at $20 million & he's fine as hell!!!! Perez, you can eat a dick!

    Nice to hear about Jann Arden, who is smart, funny, talented and honest, and Simple Plan is OK.
    Gotta be better than Canadian Idol which had terrible judges: two Jewish producers who hadn't produced anything worthwhile, a mood-swinger singer with one hit in the 80's, and the token well-dressed black guy who no-one knew. And a terrible presenter, too [spawn of Brian Mulroney].
    Hopefully it won't just go by the number of 'phone-in votes, which we all know is just a money scam on pre-teens, and nothing to do with talent.
    Canada DOES Sing!

    Isn't his real name like Rumpelstiltskin or something? He's sooo lame an frankly irrelevant in the music industry.



  16. 16

    He's not Canadian. He was born in Dallas, TX. He is still employed. He has the house flipping show and he still does concerts etc. I give him credit for trying.

    As a Canadian, I couldn't care less because I wouldn't watch the show. I'm sick to death of people thinking that only Alanis, Celine, Brian Adams and f*ckin' Jann Arden are the only Canadian artists.



  17. 17

    Jann Arden is Canada's best kept secret. If you don't know her.. look up her songs "Insensitive" and "Good Mother"



  18. 18

    Oh and the song "Unloved" too.. Man, I love her. I had totally forgotten about her genius until reading this post. Now on youtube listening to all her old classics and remeniscing
