Selena (Finally) Gets A Star On The Walk Of Fame
It's been more than two decades since Selena's passing, and yet she always seems to be on the periphery of our thoughts.
This is especially true for L.A. Take this latest example: last April, when Club 90s hosted a "Selena Ball," club promoters had to ditch their usual home at Los Globos and set up shop at Union, where there's a possible four stages to accommodate the throngs of showgoers.
So it may come as a surprise that Selena doesn't have her own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. But that's all about to change, because The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced today that Selena is in the Walk of Fame class of 2017, reports the L.A. Times. Each inductee will get a personal ceremony as the star is being laid on the walk.
According to NBC 4, Selena will also be joined by fellow Latinos Eva Longoria and Gustavo Dudamel as honorees. And then there's also New Edition, Brett Ratner, Criss Angel, and Jeff Dunham, which kinda lowers the prestige factor, but hey, it sounds like a fun group!
According to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, star ceremonies are typically announced 7 to 10 days before the event. So keep checking their Facebook page in 2017 if you want in on the Selena ceremony (which will likely be packed). All ceremonies are free to the public.
