Wahlberg embarassed about music career
London, Sep 6, Hollywood actor-producer Mark Wahlberg has revealed he is “embarrassed” about his music career.
The 39-year-old, who was a member of ‘New Kids on the Block’ band before quitting it because he didn’t like their musical style and found fame as rapper Marky Mark, admits he realises now he wasn’t as cool as he once thought, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Asked how he feels about his singing career, he said: “Ah man, embarrassed. I thought I was so cool back then, but when I see the footage…”
However, his family won’t let him forget his solo career and a nickname from the era still plagues him.
“I remember seeing this thing on VH1, some ‘Sexy People Of The 90s’ show. My brother Paul was watching with me and my assistant. They were just killing themselves with laughter,” he said.
“To top it off I was number one! So for ages after whenever they’d call, they’d be, ‘Can we speak to the ‘Sexiest Man Of The 90s’ please? They keep killing me,” he added.
