P!NK told said, “This is surreal, I feel like I’m dreaming and if anyone pinching me, I am going to punch em in the left eyebrow. I feel like a lot of people probably only thought that I would make it to the walk of shame but here I am, Two little letters make such a big difference. It has been a trip lately thinking back over the course of this career that I somehow managed to have. I signed my first record deal 23 years ago and I am only 23 and a half so that’s crazy. *LAUGHS*”
P!NK continuing to say, “I thought I could have a hit record but I never thought in my wildest dreams that I could have 2 decades of this insane fun with a family of people that I love traveling the world with and experiences that I have with each of your guys out there. Its been two decades and it’s been meaningful and its been awesome. Today, for me is a celebration of something that my dad taught me, that is to thy own self be true. And if you walk along this Boulevard and you look at these names, there is a power that lies in that, to thy own self be true. There is a power in believing in yourself, there’s a power in not giving up on life and on not giving up on yourself. And there is a power in making a decision that while you may not be the best that ever did it, you may not be the best or the prettiest or the most tallest or the most talented or whatever it is that you tell yourself that you’re not. If you’re stubborn and you don’t give up and you work really hard, no one else can ever be you.”
Telling attendees and viewers that “Today is an honor and today proved that, my whole family is here and that makes its real. And my friends and my fans thank you for all of it. You guys make it matter, so good to see you here. Thank you for coming. My husband, he’s so cute. He is my muse and if he didn’t piss me off all the time, I wouldn’t have that much to say. Thank you. I literally would not be standing up here if it weren’t for you, so never change. And my children Willow Sage and Jameson Moon, you guys are my stars and I would never shine without you.”
To unveil Pink’s star, Ellen Degeneres, Kerri Kenney-Silver, and the president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce were present as well as her family husband, Carey Hart and Pink’s two kids (Jameson and Willow), whilst Rana Ghadban emceed the honor ceremony.
