“Their value is just not the same.”
So many people in American society have always wanted to visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But for the performers that have been immortalized on the walk, it’s something much bigger. Anyone in the arts know that having your name enshrined in the ground in Los Angeles is a big deal. But over the recent years, the value of that has diminished.
No one would have thought that someone like one, if not all the Kardashians would be considered for a star. Or better yet, Perez Hilton, known for being a celebrity blogger. Because when you think of having a star, you think of all the contributions that the entertainer has made to the industry. Yet, you hear these names brought up in conversations.
But not just the reality personalities, also people who are entertainers, yet they have not been in the business that long. I saw where Jennifer Lawrence name is being considered. She has been in some pretty phenomenal films in the recent years, but I still think it’s too soon. I want to see over the next ten to fifteen years what she has to offer.
Still, there is this great feeling when walking across your favorite performer, or probably given one yourself. Because now, for the rest of your life, and even after, your name is there in concrete. People like Marilyn Monroe is still a major draw for people around the globe. As for myself do I care if I ever were to get one, no really, but I would be lying if I said I would turn it down.
