Mark Wahlberg: I'd Rap as Marky Mark "If Justin Bieber Asked Me"

If only to impress his daughter, the devoted dad says he might consider a duet with the teen pop star

Mark Wahlberg stars in the No. 1 movie in the country with Will Ferrell, The Other Guys, he's producer of a hit TV series (HBO's Entourage), and he even has a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. But according to him, his daughter is still not impressed. 

Let us explain. Recently, when asked by readers if he'd ever rap again, the star who first rose to fame as Marky Mark (and don't forget the Funky Bunch!) replied, "No. Not a chance."

"Actually, I'll take that back," he added. "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."

Wahlberg, of course, left his "Good Vibrations" days behind when he set down the mic forever and launched his unlikely, but unquestionably successful, movie career. Looking back on his decision to retire his rap persona, he says, "When I decided to go into acting, I definitely wanted to make people forget about my music career."

So will Wahlberg, 39, actually come full circle and make a hip-hop comeback by going into the studio with 16-year-old Bieber? If the pop phenom (who just won four Teen Choice awards) has anything to do with it, yes. The singer tweeted: "Mark let's make that rap song soon." We can practically hear Wahlberg's daughters squealing at the idea.
