Rapper Robert Van Winkle, AKA Vanilla Ice has the best birthday ever behind a Christmas one of course and is the ripe old age of 44 today. He was likely the bane of his music teacher mother but I'm sure she forgave him for his rap tendencies after 'Ice Ice Baby' went platinum. He tried out reality TV after his pop career faded and now races jetskis and motocross. Given his imposing and eccentric personality this guy who dated Madonna for 8 months scares people without a costume, so tonight's his night! And Robert, thank you so much for changing your name before donning those parachute pants and sporting that 80's haircut. We will remember you for your glory days, whether that's a good thing or not...
