Run, run baby! Rob Van Winkle, a.k.a. Vanilla Ice, found himself in a bizarre heap of trouble on Friday when he got caught in the tornadoes which hit towns outside of Nashville, Tennessee. The rapper (who is poised to embark on a comeback tour with fellow industry veteran MC Hammer) suddenly found himself in a scene from the Wizard of Oz.
“We were just in the middle of a huge tornado, in Nashville,” Van Winkle told RadarOnline.com. “Saw a house, truck, flying in the air! Wow! Dodged a bullet!”
The tornadoes left 30 people in the hospital, uprooted power lines, and destroyed at least ten homes on one road alone. No deaths have been reported.
Van Winkle is set to perform on Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on Friday evening. The consummate professional through and through, we’re told he’ll make sure the show will go on! (Photo: Splash News)
