Madonna And Vanilla Ice Used To Go To Movies Together Wearing Disguises

When rapper-entrepreneur and "Ninja Rap" creator Vanilla Ice was dating pop starlet Madonna one of the most exciting things for the pair to do was the same thing most couples do -- go out for dinner and a movie.

Strombo asked the star of new reality show Vanilla Ice Goes Amish what it was like dating Madonna and his answer was unexpected.

"She was a sweetheart," said Vanilla. "We had great times. You take away the fame and everything and you got two people who just basically had a normal relationship. And I wish I could tell you more about it and throw some fireworks in there or something but it was kinda cool.

"Like, we would go to movies. We had disguises. I had a moustache and a hat with hair coming down and she would go as an old lady. And we would walk in and the bodyguards would like 20 feet behind. y'know, kinda lookin' just like we're nobody. And just walk in and go and see our movie and just have a good, normal... we'd do dinner that way and nobody would ever recognize us.

"It was the greatest."

Vanilla Ice's full interview on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight airs Monday, October 21 on CBC at 7 pm.
