Hello Hollywood! There’s a new class of celebrities taking over the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Walk of Fame Class of 2021 was announced Thursday (June 18). Among the 2021 class to receive stars are Missy Elliott, Salt-N-Pepa, Morris Chestnut, and more. The class was chosen — among hundreds of nominations — by fellow Walk of Famers who sit on the Hollywood Chamber Committee.
Missy was surprised and grateful by the news of receiving a star.
“WOW! I’m still in shock,” Missy tweeted. “I remember my first trip to LA. I wanted take pics by all the Hollywood stars and now I will have one. It’s such a blessing. I want everyone to know I am humbly grateful and so appreciative.”
“The selection panel, made up of fellow Walk of Famers, hand-picks a group of honorees each year that represent various genres of the entertainment world,” committee chair Ellen K said in a statement. “The panel has done an exemplary job in choosing very talented people. We can’t wait to see each and every honoree’s face as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history as we unveil their star on the world’s most famous walkway.”
The honored celebrities will have a two year window from the time of the announcement to schedule a ceremony to reveal their star.
