Vanilla Ice says that Madonna wanted them to get married back in the 1990s. Reflecting on their relationship during an interview on the Just Jenny podcast, the rapper discussed their plans for marriage. Vanilla Ice also elaborated on what led to his and Madonna’s breakup.

“She even proposed to me. I mean things were going so crazy and fast man,” he claimed, before adding, “I was just like, ‘What? I thought the guy was supposed to do that. What do you mean? Wait a minute, this is too fast. I’m just getting started here and I’m way too young for this.’”

Later, Vanilla Ice detailed how the two met, recalling a performance of his in New York City. Madonna had been in attendance. Ice says that he spotted her during the concert “dancing her ass off” in the crowd. “I remember she came back to the dressing room and said hello to me, and she kind of gave me the sexy eyes and I was like, ‘I must be way, way mistaken on that,’” he revealed.

Afterward, Vanilla Ice explained that the release of Madonna’s iconic coffee table book, Sex, led to their break up. The controversial book features adult content including softcore pornography, simulations of sexual acts, and also sadomasochism. Isabella Rossellini, Naomi Campbell, Big Daddy Kane, as well as Vanilla Ice, and more make cameos in the book. Ice says that he didn’t consent to his inclusion in the book, which made him uncomfortable. “I was dating her during that time, so I had no idea about a sex book, I’m doing my own thing. I said, ‘How could you do that to me? And why did you do that to me?’ I could’ve sued her,” Ice further recalled. “I didn’t want to. I was like, ‘I don’t need that controversy. Let’s just let it go and you go your way, I go mine.’”
