It's about damn time!

We can't believe Paul McCartney hasn't received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!!

Is this real life??

The legendary icon will FINALLY get his star on Feb. 9 alongside fellow Beatles, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, and John Lennon in front of the historic Capitol Records building.

Celebs like Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder are said to be some of the guests in attendance at the ceremony.

This is a pretty big deal! Wait, no, a HUGE deal! Paul is most definitely a musical icon and we're SO glad he's finally going to be honored on the Walk of Fame!

What took so long??

    I am shocked! Why did it take so long?



  2. 2

    I can't believe they didn't give him a star a freaking long time ago!!!!!!!!



  3. 3

    Maybe because he is a weasel



  4. 4

    seriously?! Kathy Gifford got one years ago…. He's only a knight, a Beatle, a legend… on behalf of all Californians, I'd personally like to say "sorry". We love you Sir Paul!



  5. 5

    It takes a fan club and a lot of money to make the Star on the walk of fame happen…It's not free, that's for sure.



  6. 6

    Only now?He deserves two!



  7. 7

    Paul was actually awarded the star a long time ago. It been he who has never scheduled the ceremony.



  8. 8

    Why?



  9. 9

    He was offered it years ago, but the people that get them pay for it themselves. It costs $30,000 for one of those, and it is the responsibility of the person nominated (either the person him/herself or a 3rd party like a fan club )to pay for it.

    Six recording artists have two stars in the same category for distinct achievements: Michael Jackson, as a soloist and as a member of The Jackson Five; Diana Ross, as a member of The Supremes and for her solo work; Smokey Robinson, as a solo artist and as a member of The Miracles; and John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison, as individuals and as members of The Beatles. Paul McCartney's nomination for an individual star lapsed in 1998 when a presentation ceremony could not be scheduled.[27] He has since been renominated, and will receive his second star "when a date can be arranged for him to unveil it."

    The most common question received by Chamber personnel is, "Why doesn't _____________ have a star?"[117] Numerous major entertainment figures and legendary show business acts are not included on the Walk of Fame, for a variety of reasons. Some, such as Julia Roberts[27][118] and Clint Eastwood,[118] have declined to participate; nominations cannot proceed without the nominee's consent. Others, such as George Clooney[119] and John Denver,[28] were nominated but would not agree to the mandatory personal appearance at the unveiling ceremony. Others have simply never been nominated, or do not have a nominator willing or able to pay the selection fee, or have less than the required five years' minimum involvement in their designated field. Others are merely victims of selection constraints and probability: only about 10% of nominees are selected each year.

    A fee (currently $30,000), payable at time of selection, is collected to pay for the creation and installation of the star, as well as general maintenance of the Walk of Fame. The fee is usually paid by the nominating organization, which may be a fan club, or a film studio, record company, broadcaster, or other sponsor involved with the honoree's current or ongoing project.[23][120] (Wikkikpedia)

    Re: Canukgrl – Thank you for the detailed explanation. I knew many famous people opted out for various reasons,(mostly paying for it themselves and showing up) but the younger generation needed to be informed. Apparently so does Perez. He should have known why before printing the rant.

    Paul—I am currently in the process of making up an award just so I can give it to you—It was going to be "husband", but you married someone else, darn it!!!!

    You're the absolute most deserving person in this world for anything-a true talent, classy innovative man that is also the cutest boy I've ever seen. LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!

    the whole "star" thing is so stupid. They have to pay for it and it's usually tied into/timed for publicity for a project. No wonder Clooney, Roberts, etc. haven't participated.

    Re: Canukgrl – Thank you for informing us! I'm sure if he didn't have to pay for it or be given the responsibility to schedule it he would've been on the Walk of Fame years ago.
