Pop superstar diva Mariah Carey achieves a new milestone.
The Grammy Award-winning received a star on the storied Hollywood Walk of Fame on August 5th (Wednesday). The 2,556th star was revealed at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Argyle Avenue, right outside W Hotel. Mariah’s addition to the celebrated sidewalk has been in the works since 2007 but was only recently finalised.
“Her team wanted a date after [she] finished her sold-out Las Vegas residency,” says one Walk of Fame producer.
The “Hero” singer is of course, one of the most successful artistes in music. She’s had eighteen Number 1 hits, sold over 200 million albums and won five Grammy Awards. The songstress who was last in Malaysia in October 2014, was joined by directors Lee Daniels (who directed her in “Precious”) and Brett Ratner as well as music producer and record executive L.A. Reid during the unveiling of the star.
Mariah was of course, also accompanied by her twins Monroe and Moroccan during the ceremony. During her speech she said, “oh my God, this is so overwhelming and emotional. You’re making me cry. This is a huge honour and a dream come true.”
