Fed: Vanilla Ice on trial for crimes against music in Australia

15 Mar 2009 2:32 AM

Vanilla Ice is coming back to Australia later this month to either perform at the V Festival .. or apologise on stage for his musical wrongs.

Born ROBERT VAN WINKLE .. Vanilla Ice was responsible for the 1991 hit Ice Ice Baby .. which introduced hip hop to the mainstream and topped the Australian charts.

Now in a new video he's apologising for the bad hair .. the baggy pants .. and most of all .. the music.

So far the clip has been viewed more than 430-thousand times on YouTube.

It's all part of a Virgin Mobile campaign to right music wrongs .. and they're letting the Australian public decide whether Vanilla Ice is innocent or guilty on www.rightmusicwrongs.org.
