Grammy-winning US pop singer Christina Aguilera was honored with a star on Hollywood’s celebrity Walk of Fame, barely a week before her feature film debut.
The star, the 2,423rd on the famous sidewalk roll call of celebrities past and present, was unveiled on Monday, nine days before her acting skills go on display when “Burlesque” hits the silver screen, co-starring Cher.
“As a young girl in Pittsburgh, I often imagined what it would be like to come to Hollywood and make it as a performer,” the 29-year-old told screaming fans on Hollywood Boulevard.
“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,” she added.Then, as if on cue, some homeless guy threw up on it.
