After over 20 years as the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige is being honored with her own star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. On January 11th, 2018, which is her birthday, her star will be unveiled in the recording category. Diddy, who played a crucial role in her career during the early years, will be taking part in the ceremony.
“Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation. Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.
Before she receives this honor, Blige will be attending the Golden Globes on January 7th as she is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for her role in Mudbound as Florence Jackson.
