Default Vanilla Ice sampling Queen, or just ripping them off?

My roommate is arguing with me that Ice Ice Baby is just sampling Under Pressure.
I side with him ripping them off.

Can anyone define what "Sampling" is, in layman terms, in addition to outlining why or why not Vanilla Ice is just a beat jacking faggot? I am dealing with a woman, so if I am right, I need very simple terms to put this in.

Under Pressure
Under Pressure - YouTube

Ice Ice Baby
Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby - YouTube


Examples of actual sampling (in what my opinion of the act is):
Immortal Technique:
Austrian Death Machine:

She says Immortal Technique is ripping off the beat from Pinocchio.

within the hiphop genre, at the time, it became fashionable to use other people's music.

if he got the rights = not stealing

and if he didn't have the rights it wouldn't ever be played.

Who cares when the rip-off kicks the amount of fucking ass that Ice Ice Baby does.

Why are people still thinking about Vanilla Ice? He hasn't been relevant since I was you guys' age, probably.

What do you mean at the time? people still sample a shit load. And it is a problem, lot's of producers/djs/rappers have been sued over sampling issues.

Ron Carter sued Dr. Dre because Dre sampled one of Carter's bass lines for the chronic. I think the settled out of court

James Newton sued the Beastie Boys over a three note flute sample on Pass the Mic. Newton lost.
