Hoping to combat the flood of "crazy rumors" that has cast a pall over the Olympic games and the triumph of the Mars rover, Vanilla Ice took to his Twitter account to clear up the incessant reports—which have "gone viral all around the world"—that he died in a car accident. In fact, Vanilla Ice is not dead—not only because he has a beach concert to play in Chicago this weekend that would be slightly more depressing were he to turn up dead, but because, he says, "Ninjas never die." So please, help Vanilla Ice "retweet this" so he can get the word out that he is not dead. Vanilla Ice is immortal. Vanilla Ice is a ninja. [via Gawker]
