London: 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.
