Mariah Carey officially cemented her spot in Hollywood history today.
The five-time Grammy winner and best-selling female artist of all time received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with 4-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan right by her side.
Fresh off completing the first leg of her sold-out #1 to Infinity Las Vegas residency, Carey, 45, epitomized glamour in a cleavage-baring black sequined gown accessorized with loose, blond curls and silver bangle bracelets. The singer's kids with ex Nick Cannon looked adorable in matching white outfits as they snuggled up to mommy on the iconic Hollywood Boulevard walkway.
The pop diva was joined by longtime record producer L.A. Reid and Academy Award-nominated director Lee Daniels, who was on hand to share some very exciting news for Empire fans. During the ceremony, Daniels—who directed Carey in 2009's Precious and 2008's Tennessee—announced Mariah will be heading to the Fox music drama for season two as a guest star.
Carey thanked her fans, telling the crowd, "Really, you're melting my heart. You're making me cry, and that's why I'm keeping on my sunglasses. But I cannot thank you enough. This is a huge honor."
And after the ceremony Mariah headed over to The Roosevelt Hotel for a celebratory luncheon hosted by longtime friend Jeff Beacher where she was warmly welcomed with a dozen pink long stemmed roses.
Congratulations, Mariah! This achievement is a long time coming.
