Mariah Carey has long been a legend, but her status will literally be cemented next week. The singer/songwriter, actress and all around diva will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, reports Page Six.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced Monday that Carey will get the 2,556th star on the walk of fame. The ceremony will take place on August 5th, and guest speakers will include Lee Daniels, Brett Ratner, and L.A. Reid.
Given Carey’s credentials, it seems like this move was inevitable or at least a long time coming, depending on how you look at it. Our girl Mimi is one of the most successful artists in music after having sold millions of albums, winning five Grammys among other awards, and landing 18 number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
