“I did “Ice Ice Baby" when I was 16. So I can kind of relate a bit. I sold over a hundred million records and I had a weekend that lasted about three years, and I didn't know who I was, what's my purpose in life. My prediction about Bieber is that he's going to go through one of those weekends that lasts a few years because he's had such success as a child act," Contactmusic quoted Vanilla as saying.
Vanilla hit the limelight at an early age but his career took a dip following drug abuse. Justin seems to be aware of the dangers of earning fame at an early age. “It's been great to just think and enjoy hanging out with friends. I'm still growing up, and when you're working every day, you don't really get a chance to figure out who you are. So with the time off, I'm able to think, pray and just kind of grow up," he had said earlier.
