Kid Rock expressed his true feelings about miniature Canadian pop stars this week while appearing on the Howard Stern show, saying Justin Bieber is in store for a "long ride down."

"Tell me if this is wrong. Justin Bieber … is 100 percent like watching Vanilla Ice all over again," Rock said. "It's exactly the same."

When Stern countered by saying Vanilla Ice was a one-hit wonder, Rock replied, "Well, as soon as Bieber has a hit, he'll be like Vanilla Ice."

In fairness, Justin's had plenty of hits, but KR's points are well taken. Especially these, in which he explains how he thinks the Biebs' story will play out like a Greek tragedy:

"The kid's young. He's got some money. He's got the world in his hands. It's just kind of sad to see him go down this trajectory. It's gonna be a very long ride down ... I kind of feel for the kid, to be honest with you."

Is KR predicting the future? Maybe, maybe not. One thing's for sure, though -- if Justin shows up in the new 'Ninja Turtles' movie, all bets are off.
