January 22nd is a big day for Minnie Mouse. After being in the business for 90 years, she will finally get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Katy Perry will present the honor.
“After 90 years of serving looks & smiles as the polka dot queen, it’s time she got that recognition!” Perry said. “It will be a childhood and grown adult dream come true for me that day!”
It only seems right for Minnie to get this award especially since #timesup movement is going on. Mickey Mouse earned his star 40 years ago in 1978 so it’s about time that Minnie joined the club.
“Minnie Mouse is a woman of the ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame!” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies. “Generations of fans of all ages have been looking forward to her seeing her bright new star.”
The ceremony will happen January 22nd and you can livestream it on the Walk of Fame website.
