    Hmmm... it only took 15 years for Wahlberg to realize that he's no Greg Brady. Heh! Heh! Heh!


    Mark Wahlberg Is "embarrassed" About His Music Career :lol:​

    http://www.showbizspy.com/article/212149/mark-wahlberg-embarrassed-about-his-music-career.html

    The 39-year-old star -- who was an original member of New Kids on the Block before quitting because he didn't like their musical style and going on to find fame as rapper Marky Mark -- admits he realizes now he wasn't as cool as he once thought.

    (No kidding! :D :D :D)

    "Ah man, embarrassed", he said when asked about his singing carer. "I thought I was so cool back then, but when I see the footage, I was such an a*s." (I think he left out the rest of the word :D)

    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 if 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."

    I think wahlberg has finally become cool now, because he stopped taking himself so seriously. But he is still one only a few white rappers to have a hit song and not be a laughing stock.

    I saw him years ago in Jensen Beach (Pineapple Festival) and all the girls were all over him. It was so funny that he was about 5 feet from us and actually did well in his performance.

    I am manly enough to admit that the dude was (is) as buffed as he looks on TV.

    He was very nice to the audience and I was actually very surprised.

    I have always been a bigger fan of his acting versus his music, but he really shouldn't put himself down, as not that many people are truly multi-talented.

    We aren't that far apart in age........speaking of buffed, time to get out the weights, he still does it, so no excuses for any of us, right? :)
