Vanilla Ice: Rapper, reality show star and ... YouTube star? Maybe someday soon!
The singer, born Rob Van Winkle, performed with some of YouTube's biggest musical stars at the Hollywood Palladium Sunday night for the 3rd Annual Streamy Awards, which celebrates the best of online programming. The collaboration was an anxious affair though because he had only met crooner Chester See, musician Mike Tompkins and Epic Rap Battles of History's Nice Peter the night before.

"If there were a TV in view, I wouldn't [care]," she barks, self-reflexively acknowledging what a clichéd storyline this is.
Send in the clown doctors. Late-night programmer Adult Swim has renewed Childrens Hospital for a fourth season, Cartoon Network announced Tuesday.
The satirical medical series is written by and stars Rob Corddry as a doctor who wears clown makeup and "blood"-splattered scrubs so he can practice what he calls the "healing power of laughter" at a hospital where the staff is more interested in tending to their overactive libidos than treating patients.
