Portman later reprized her epic look in 2018!

In rap circles, he was known as Marky Mark. And yes: it was his track “Good Vibrations” that became the leader of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991! But already in 1996, Wahlberg gave up music forever ... In his interview from 2008, he said that rap is the lot of the young, and he is already too old for this.

This actor was also a rapper, better known as Tommy No 1! In the late 1990s, Hardy and a friend released a decent album, Falling on Your Ass in 1999. True, the record would have remained gathering dust on the shelf if in 2018 someone had not uploaded its contents to the network!
