Is it possible that the rapping career of New Kids on the Block member/Funky Bunch leader-turned-actor Marky Mark Wahlberg could be resurrected? Perhaps. But only at the invitation of Justin Bieber.
In a recent Q & A with Time magazine Wahlberg was asked, "Would you be willing to drop a hot eight bars on a rap song if asked by the right artist?"
He candidly replied, "No. Not a chance. Actually, I'll take that back. If Justin Bieber asked me, I'd do that for my daughter. She loves me to death, but she doesn't think I'm very cool, so that might turn it around."
Does this make him a good father, or just mean that he has absolutely no shame?
