Vanilla Ice To Perform at Timberwolves Halftime
Stop, collaborate, and listen! Ice may be off many Minnesota lakes, but it will be on the court at Target Center Friday night during halftime for the game against the visiting Boston Celtics. The Timberwolves announced (with what seemed like sincere excitement) that 80's and 90's hip hop star Vanilla Ice would be taking to the court to provide a halftime show for what is sure to be a sold out game.
Here's the official press release:
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that multi-platinum recording artist Vanilla Ice will put on a special halftime performance during next Friday's game vs. Boston.
Vanilla Ice's album "To The Extreme," released in August of 1990, became the fastest selling hip hop album of all time, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album, featuring the smash hit "Ice Ice Baby," spent 16 weeks on the charts, and sold 11 million copies.
Vanilla Ice, a two-time American Music Award winner, released his eighth studio album in 2011 and currently stars in "The Vanilla Ice Project" which airs on the DIY Network.
For good measure, here is a taste of what you might expect if you happen to be heading to Minneapolis for the game.
