Congrats, Mariah!

Why has it taken so long for Mariah Carey to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I recall her being selected in 2007, but she should have had one so much sooner than that. It seems like quite the injustice since she is 25 years into her career and sold over 200 million records.
Better late then never, I suppose. Mimi will be the recipient of the 2,556th star at a ceremony on August 5th. LA Reid, alongside directors Lee Daniels and Brett Ratner are expected to make guest speeches on the big day. Congrats!
