Christina Aguilera Gets Walk of Fame Star
Christina Aguilera has joined more than 2,000 other celebrities to have their names immortalized along the famous Hollywood Boulevard, getting her own Walk of Fame star in a ceremony on Monday.
The Grammy winning singer and budding actress said the honor of having her own star is a fulfilment of a dream. “As a young girl in Pittsburgh, I often imagined what it would be like to come to Hollywood and make it as a performer,” Aguilera said in a speech. “We would go from audition to audition and I would sing anthem after anthem … hoping one day it would all pay off. Standing here at this moment I know that it has paid off in spades.”
The unveiling of Aguilera’s star comes just over a week before her feature film debut. The 29-year-old singer is set to appear in the musical film “Burlesque.” Aguilera plays a small-town girl who tries her luck at a Los Angeles burlesque club. Co-starring with Aguilera in the film by Steve Antin is Academy Award-winner Cher.
