Mary J. Blige to Receive Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is about to grace the Hollywood Walk of Fame with her royal presence as Mary J. Blige will be honored with her very own star.
Diddy, who was instrumental during Mary’s early years, will be on hand for the celebration, which is scheduled to take place Jan. 11. He will be part of the star’s unveiling, along with Hollywood Chamber president and CEO Leron Gubler, according to Variety.
“Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies. “Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk.”
Before she receives her star, the R&B icon will attend Sunday’s Golden Globes, where she is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for her role in Mudbound. Although she is a celebrated singer and actress, her star will be in the recording category.
Last year, Ice Cube, Adam Levine, and New Edition were among the Walk of Fame honorees.
