Reporter calls Justin Bieber the 'Vanilla Ice of the 21st century'

The career of teen heartthrobs are notoriously short and in the eyes of one reporter, Justin Bieber's time is up. On Monday, Jan. 6, Page Six's Richard Johnson reported on the dismal showing of Justin's “Believe” concert film and even declared him the "Vanilla Ice of the 21st century."

The reporter pointed out that Justin's “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” documentary grossed $73 million two years ago. In contrast, his current “Believe” concert film has only raked in $5.39 million in the two weeks that it's been in theaters so far, meaning that it's at a lowly 19th place on the box-office chart.

"While Miley Cyrus strips and twerks, no one wants to see Bieber naked. He’s the Vanilla Ice of the 21st century," concluded the reporter.

Being compared to Vanilla Ice isn't necessarily so bad. Vanilla Ice is still on TV after all, even if it's not for performing as a musician but attempting to cook in a reality TV show. He currently stars in "Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-off 2014," along with another faded entertainer, Tiffany.
