* HilariousInHindsight: He once went on a trip to Egypt, though this was [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure not the first time a Vanilla Ice was in egypt.]]

** It might be because of the lame excuse he gave for it at the time of the song's release. When asked in an interview if he had sampled Under Pressure he acknowledged that they had, but then claimed that it wasn't the same bassline because of one miniscule change they made to it.[[note]]They just added one extra beat to the bassline.[[/note]] It also doesn't help that he hadn't gotten Queen and David Bowie's permission to use it.

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Detractors simply will not cease complaining about how he sampled "Under Pressure." It's as though they forgot that [[DoubleStandard many other rappers sample classic songs]]! One only wonders what they said when Jedward did a mash of up Under Pressure & Ice Ice Baby.

* DeaderThanDisco: Ice is such an infamous example of this trope that he's practically famous now ''for'' being this trope. Ice did make a huge impact with ''To The Extreme,'' but as others have pointed out, he ultimately proved that it's a lot more difficult to make a TeenIdol (especially a ''white'' teen idol) within the context of HipHop music, and once the controversies about his past happened, plus the gangsta movement making himself and guys like Music/MCHammer look tame, it was all over.

He's managed to carve himself a fairly solid and dependable niche with juggalos, but as far as the mainstream is concerned, he's dead.



* MisBlamed: When his original fall from fame occurred, he was widely derided as a bullshit artist who made up most of his childhood just to look hard. In reality, it was entirely the fault of SBK, who had authored an almost completely fake "biography" without his permission or knowledge to make up for the fact that he was exceedingly secretive about his personal life with the intention of protecting his family and was openly hostile towards anyone who pried (he famously told a Dallas Morning News reporter that his mother's profession was "none of (her) fucking business" when asked). It ''is'' known that he came from a lower-class background, but the finer details were never divulged.

* ItsPopularNowItSucks: Inverted - most of Vanilla Ice's fans tend to like his newer material better, although "Ice Ice Baby" is still widely popular.

* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: Though his ''Film/CoolAsIce'' performance was panned, he's earned appraisal for his performance in the Captain Hook in the Chatham, Kent Central Theatre pantomime production of ''PeterPan''.
