While the bulk of the acts appearing are subject to rumour and speculation, it's been confirmed via MySpace that none other than Vanilla Ice -- yes, that's Vanilla Ice of 'Ice Ice Baby' fame and Jedward collaborations -- is set to appear at one of the bar stages dotted across the festival site on June 24.
No sniggering at the back there! It's easy to forget that 'Ice Ice Baby' became the first hip-hop single to score pole position on the Billboard charts back in 1990, while the track's parent album, 'To the Extreme,' topped the Billboard 200 chart where it resided for a further 16 weeks and shifted 11 million copies.
Despite his success, Vanilla Ice attempted suicide in 1994 with a cocktail of narcotics before turning his life around. He's subsequently released more albums including 'Hard To Swallow' and 'Bi-Polar' that have revealed a more rock-orientated sound -- but you can pretty much guarantee that it'll be 'Ice Ice Baby' that rocks the house at Glastonbury.
