Pop Princess Katy Perry and Rap legend Tupac are to be honoured with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it has emerged today.

Want all the details?

Meet us below…

In honour of their respective contributions to music, Perry and the late Rapper will receive on the Walk of Fame next year, joining a long list of stars from stage and screen chosen by the ‘Walk of Fame’ committee to score the coveted feat.

Announced hours after Jennifer Lopez celebrated the unveiling of her Star, the committee’s decision to tribute Tupac (born Tupac Amaru Shakur) comes 17 years after his untimely death Las Vegas in the September of 1996.

Their celebration of Perry’s work comes five years after her ‘One Of The Boys’ driven debut, and three years after the launch of her multi-platinum album ‘Teenage Dream‘- which has now surpassed sales of 5,500,000 units worldwide as of June 2013.

Thus far, Perry has sold 8.5 million albums to date while Shakur boasts reported sales of 75 million worldwide, helped in part by the 10x Platinum release, ‘All Eyez On Me‘.

  3. Tracy June 20, 2013

    Congrats to 2Pac! Very well deserved.


    Round 2:
    Slaty Perry (The Female MJ) vs Rosie

    • RICHANDBLACK11 June 20, 2013

      Yesss I live ….I got 1000 Euro’s on Rosie

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        LMAO… You’re crazy. The Female MJ dismissed Rosie on that lama post.

  5. RICHANDBLACK11 June 20, 2013

    2pac Star is long overdue…RIP, Best Rapper ever IMO

  6. JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 20, 2013

    ‘Katy Hudson’?

    And, once again, before ‘WHITNEY HOUSTON’?

    Oh, the extreme hilarity of this, now, inspid award.

    Anyway, congratulations Tupac. However, you should have gotten yours a decade ago. 😉

    • COMMON June 20, 2013


      DEATH @Katy Hudson Chiiillleee’…

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        What’s so funny though?

    • DOSSOME June 20, 2013

      But Whitney was awarded a star way back in the 90s but declined to receive it….real HALL OF FAMERS don’t care about this s***.

    • Gregg June 21, 2013

      From what i understood, Whitney didnt want one….she was selected to receive one but never responded to it. Correct me if im wrong anyone……Katy Perry has done nothing to deserve a star on the walk of fame….I guess they give them out like candy now.

      • FAF June 21, 2013

        Why didn’t she want a star? Whitney wasn’t exactly hiding from fame, she appeared to like the spotlight

  7. Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013

    Only God can judge me

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

      and Yeezus.

      • Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013

        Lol, this is a song by 2pac.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        I know…. I thought you would get what I did there. Lol

      • Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013

        No, i’m stupid.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        What do you think of Jared’s avi? isn’t he just the hottest thing ever?

      • Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013


      • glum June 21, 2013

        Shut up.

    • steph June 20, 2013

      Hey Suicide I’m still waiting on your avi pics boo. matter of fact just post a pic of her penis. Also, im starting to suspect that your really a FEMALE

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        lmfao. I don’t think Suicide is a female. He mentioned once about tasting his penis or something along those lines.

      • Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013

        If you want to see my face, go to facebook.

        Lol, why are you asking me about Jared?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013


        Because you two are always flirting on here, so I just wanted to know if you are impressed by what you see ( I know I am).

      • Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013

        I’m not impressed.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        Well you’re just too hard to please. He’s hotter than Justin Timberlake imo.

      • Suicide Blonde June 20, 2013

        What the f***!…no f****** way, are you kidding me, i need a drink.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        Lmao. maybe we are seeing different pictures.

  8. rihking June 20, 2013

    The hell? katy perry got a star??????????????????

  9. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 20, 2013

    Katy Perry????!!!!!!

    BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare- Deceased 6/20/13

    • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 20, 2013


    • Katy kat June 20, 2013

      How long did it take Janet to get hers? Does she even have one kiiiiiiii

      • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 20, 2013

        That’s not even a serious question–of course she has one. The REAL kiiii is when she did receive it, NO ONE questioned it unlike a certain somebody who has zero stage presence and marginal talent.

      • Teenage Dream (Album Of The Decade) June 20, 2013

        Katys a better vocalist then janets whisper ass tho hahaha

        Not My fault Janets career ended after JT pulled her titty out lolololololol

      • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 20, 2013

        When Katy Perry creates 5 classic albums (she has ZERO to date), you can speak about Legend Janet. However, that will never happen so…..

      • FAF June 21, 2013

        @Teenage Dream b**** are u joking?!??!?? WHO HAS KATY PERRY INSPIRED?!?!??!? JANET JACKSON HAS BEEN PERFORMINING SINCE SHE WAS F****** 5 YRS OLD

  10. King B>Rihanna June 20, 2013

    yes for 2-Pac

    *watches Poetic Justice*

    umm what feud or cuss session did I miss Slayriah and Rich?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

      Lol. Why did you change back your username, i liked the new one. 🙁

      It’s all on the Lana post.

      • King B>Rihanna June 20, 2013

        well my boo rich didn’t like it so i decided to change back

  11. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 20, 2013

    I got so caught up in the phuckery and shenanigans surrounding that girl who shot whipped cream from her b****** that I failed to mention the well deserved star for the LEGEND AND ICON Tupac Shakur. Bravo!

  12. Katy kat June 20, 2013

    Yaaaas Katy so proud of the Queen of pop

  13. Katy kat June 20, 2013

    Katy deserve it because shes the female mj #deal monkeys

    • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 20, 2013

      The KING

      I Just Can’t Stop Loving You
      The Way You Make Me Feel >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Man In The Mirror
      Dirty Diana


      California Gurls
      Teenage Dream
      Last Friday Night

      The delusion is real. It’s time for yall to retire that “she’s the female mj” ridiculousness.

  14. F** June 20, 2013

    Jlo put in a good 17 years in the game and PAC is a legend and katy perry has a flop movie no grammys a album that sold 100 records and 1 somewhat and 1 succesful album. S*** is just handed out these days . Rih and bey both have atleast 1 album that can slay this b****** discography . I’m no rih fan but I’d rather see her get one first .

  15. Katy kat June 20, 2013

    Katy is already a f****** legend

  16. Melanie June 20, 2013

    Legend Perry tbh

  17. Teenage Dream (Album Of The Decade) June 20, 2013

    Katy got a star before Mariah Whitney Beyonce Rihanna GaGa Nicki &Taylor hahah I see why y’all mad

    • TruthSpeaker June 21, 2013

      Mariah been had a star….

  18. F** June 20, 2013

    Beyonce got one do your research before you try to make up facts.

  19. SuxMyCockiness =O June 20, 2013

    See this is the kind of s*** that makes my blood boil. In the game only 5 years and Katy Perry gets a star?I don’t even understand how she qualified.

  20. Rosie June 20, 2013

    Katy got a star with no impact on the industry except being the local kindergarten Zooey Deschanel looking version of Gaga without the impact, sales, or globalness.
    Pathetic. Like I said in the J Ho post, the Walk of Fame isn’t even a legitimate honor, just a tourist attraction and is seen as a joke by Hollywood.

    • SuxMyCockiness =O June 20, 2013

      ^Truth. I just read up on it and it says that a celebrity has to submit for it and if selected they basically have to pay $30,000. Though I think the Walk of Fame is cool, it really isn’t as big of an honor as they make it seem. Hence why so many A-list celebrities aren’t even interested in having a star.

      • Rosie June 20, 2013

        Right. Even a quick Google will tell you that the industry thinks its a joke and that it’s only used for publicity and tourists.
        I mean, George Lopez has one and not Clint Eastwood, who is an actual legend with legit respect and acclaim.

  21. Rosie June 20, 2013

    Is Gravatar f****** up? Why is my avi showing is most of my posts but not some?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

      Lol, I think that happens when one tends to go back and forth between usernames. 🙂

      • Rosie June 20, 2013

        I’m using the same username.
        I guess I spelled my email address wrong. Oh well.

  22. Rosie June 20, 2013

    And god, Katy Kats are delusional. How can you be a legend when everyone stopped giving a s*** about you after your era ended? The last time she made any headlines is for f****** John Mayer. Now she’s dating Robert Pattinson and the best she can get is 1/4 of a page in Us Weekly. And legends get more endorsements than Popchips. And sells less than 40% of their albums in the US and more than 50% of total record sales internationally.

  23. DeezNuts June 20, 2013

    I need to know the criteria to get on that Walk of Fame b/c if Katheryn Hudson is getting a Star my s*** is LONG over f****** due.

    In all seriousness tho: Before, Whitney “the Voice” Houston, and Mariah Carey?! TF?! TREASON!

    *SN: I KNOW Mariah is Seething and Teething over the Jlo star tho. LMFAOOOOOOOOOO kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

      Why would Mariah give a f*** about JLo having a star?

      Mariah was selected to receive her star in 2007 btw.

      • DeezNuts June 20, 2013

        B/c your fav is obviously bothered by her. 🙁
        I stand corrected tho h**.

        Nicki is on year 3 hun. I think 5 years is the eligibility period. 🙂 Give it time. I mean it did take Mariah 17 years for hers.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

        Yeah… Nicki is on year three and is still struggling to get that #1 single.

        Mariah’s net worth is twice the amount of Jennifer’s. Mariah’s albums sales CRUSH Jennifer’s. Mariah’s impact in the industry puts Jlo under a rock. So why is it that Mariah would be bothered by one of her many lessers?

    • TheArtOfLettingGo June 21, 2013

      Both Mariah Whitney were selected in the past, but they just haven´t given a damn about it. Well Whitney won´t ever do unfortunately. They are above that. This is used for promo and nothing else. Xtina received hers a few months ago if I remember correctly, at the lowest point of her career. It´s just a joke.

  24. . : : h 2 o : : . June 20, 2013

    Female MJ my ass

    Legend my ass

    Death @ her 3-year-old thinking their fav is ANYTHING but another $1 digital tracks – based highschool lockerroom CLOWN.

    I mean . . .

    – Can’t sing
    – Can’t dance
    – SHITE musical creativity
    – Can’t even make it to 10M albums worldwide
    – SHITE overall impact
    – SHITE touring career

    . . and YET she is the female MJ?

    B**** is a F-L-O-P if ANYTHING.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 20, 2013

      She can sing though………..

    • Rosie June 20, 2013

      YESS!!! Plus she’s local as hell and the only time anyone cares about her anymore since Wide Awake is when she showed off her tits for attention at the Grammys. She’s worse than Rihanna.

    • mr.m June 21, 2013

      I can’t believe how stupid these teenagers are!
      I’m not a hater, but this is a joke!!
      Katy is nothing but a gimmick artist
      She gave nothin’ to the music industry
      If this is officially conformed then this is not an honor for me anymore .. It’s just a matter of $$

  25. Cassie Lover June 20, 2013

    Rather see R**** get a star before that corny trick

  26. mrs carter June 20, 2013

    Lmao Beyonce got one before your fav was even born, do your research Katy stans

  27. rih rox June 21, 2013

    It’s destiny’s child as a group who has one. So you might as well say Michelle has one and so does Kelly.

  28. TaylorSwift1Stan June 21, 2013

    Katy Perry? What’s her impact? Basic award

  29. KingBeyBitch June 21, 2013

    2pac one is LONGGG overdue my baby deserved one a long time ago.

  30. FAF June 21, 2013

    I f****** can’t …. 😆 Ppl dissing Legendary Janet Jackson, saying Katy Perry is more talented bc her voice is LOUDER???? 😆 *DEAD* 18 mil dollar unprecedented contract in the ’90s to virgin records the FIRST FEMALE TO BREAK RECORDS, LEGENDARY TOURING CAREER!!!!! HER IMPACT OVERALL >>>> KATY perry. I mean, the b**** makes cute songs but a Hollywood star for what?! 5 #1 singles? Rishitta might as well get one, too! At least she has 6 platinum plaques ! I f****** can’t deal with this white supremacy in the industry ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡ ➡

  31. DIGGER BEY June 21, 2013

    Wait. Whole up. WTH has Katy done to get an star so fast? I like her and all but this is just to soon. The only remarkable thing is 5 #1s off one album. That’s great but that doesn’t deserve a star so fast. Hell she just came out, a few years ago. How n the hell, can u honor JLo, Tupac and then Katy with one. That’s some of the dumbest s*** I’ve seen n awhile, coming from the entertainment business. And smh @ Katy being The Female MJ lol. Katy hasn’t sold over 10 million albums in the US and she’s suppose to b the female version. Katy can’t dance and she’s suppose to b the female version. Katy has kind of medicore live voice and she’s suppose to b the female version. Katy has no stage presence and she’s suppose to b the female version. Lmfaoooooooooo I can go on and on. I know MJ has risen somewhere and doing the Thriller dance. P

    • TheArtOfLettingGo June 21, 2013

      It´s not that she hasn´t sold 10 million albums in the USA, it´s that not even her wordwide sales reach that number. It´s a joke.

  32. ~The Arcade~ June 21, 2013

    Congratulations for the Tupac star… but Katy?? only 5 years in and she’s getting a star?!!! SMH

  33. TheArtOfLettingGo June 21, 2013

    LOLOLOL OMFG! See? Another proof of how useless those stars in that walk of fame are. She´s just starting the promo for her next album. lol I can´t…

  34. TeamBreezy June 21, 2013

    Teenage Dream will be an iconic album years from now , congrats girl . I love you Pac!
