Vanilla Ice has further defended his position on Justin Bieber. According to MTV the Ice Ice Baby star has been quoted earlier in the week saying: "My prediction about Bieber is that he's going to go through one of those weekends that lasts a few years because he's had such success as a child act. You know, then something else new will come along and he'll be forgotten and he can try to put all the pieces back together, so it's going to be entertaining to watch."

Although Vanilla has not denied making the comments, he has said that the quote was taken out of context: "I think the whole story is that [I'm] badmouthing Justin Bieber. That's just not true," Vanilla Ice insisted. "I'm friends with him and I've hung out with him. I know his parents, they're very nice."

"I don't think he's going to be forgotten," he continued. "I don't think he's going to be forgotten at all. In fact, I think he'll be remembered forever. I wish him all the best. I wasn't trying to say anything bad about anybody. I never badmouth him at all."

"I don't have any reason to hate anybody; I believe in good karma and spreading good energy."
