Mariah Carey has finlly received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! It’s been a long time coming, but the elusive chanteuse was awarded the 2,556th star today outside of the W Hollywood Hotel.
Joining the R&B legend were her twins Monroe and Morrocan and they were just adorable as they watched mommy MiMi relishing in her big feat.
The Grammy winning multi-platinum artist was joined by her friends BET President of Programming Stephen Hill, filmmakers Brett Ratner (Precious) and Lee Daniels (The Butler, Empire), and her longtime friend and collaborator L.A. Reid.
Before she took the podium, she picked up her twins Roe & Roc where they both affectionately said “I love you mommy!” She responded, “I love you babies.”
After being introduced, the “#1 to Infinity” singer thanked everyone for the outpouring of love saying,
“This is so overwhelming! I never expected this. I’m very emotional. Thank you so much to everyone for being here.”
“This is a huge honor, a childhood dream come true. It’s been a long time coming so they say and I’m very honored and very humbled and thankful to be here. Thank you so much to everybody for being here.”
She greeted her “lambily” fans to sign autographs.

Nicki Minaj is following in the footsteps of her boyfriend Meek Mill, who recently released his “Bike Life” game available for iPhone and Android. Now the “Anaconda” rap star is set to launch her very own mobile gaming app.
App developer Glu reveals the game will feature Nicki’s voice and likeness with her “creative direction” driving the app. Not many other details have been released as of yet.
CEO Niccolo de Masi said in a statement, “I am thrilled to welcome the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj, to Glu’s growing list of celebrity partners.”
So when can we expect to download the game? As of now, it’s expected to drop next summer.
This is one hell of a week for Nicki. Outside of being in the middle of the rap beef between her beau and label mate Drake, the Young Money star got bootyliciously commemorated in wax at Madame Tussauds museum in Las Vegas and she’s currently on her “Pinkprint” tour which stopped in Charlotte, NC last night.
