Vanilla Ice's Quotes

  • It took me a while and a lot of hard times to figure out my purpose, I am so happy with my life. I just want to help make other people happy too.
  • Learn from my mistakes and you don't have to make them yourself.
  • When "Ice Ice Baby" was selling a million records a day I bought several properties: a home next to Michael J. Fox in L.A., a palace in Miami and a mountain cabin in Utah. Then, a few years later, I took a break from touring, saw that my properties had cobwebs, so I sold them, and - to my surprise - I made a huge profit!
