Sorry, Kanye — the Hollywood Walk of Fame doesn’t think your girl qualifies for a star of her very own.
The rapper recently declared on Jimmy Kimmel Live that his main squeeze Kim Kardashian deserves a square of sidewalk on Hollywood’s most famous footpath. Unfortunately, a representative for the landmark recently told the New York Daily News that the Walk has no category for reality stars: “They’re not giving a performance, it’s just them going through their daily lives and rituals on TV,” Walk of Fame vice president for media relations Ana Martinez explained. “We honor people who’ve acted in or directed or produced an award-winning show or film. And it’s the same with music, people who maybe have gold records.” (For the record, Martinez told EW the same thing in 2011.)
Surely you can see where she’s coming from — the Walk can’t just be handing out stars all willy-nilly. Mickey Rooney only has two! And clearly, only the most important entertainment luminaries are rewarded with stars on the Walk — you know, like these past recipients:
The Harlem Globetrotters
George “Spanky” McFarland
Judge Judith Sheindlin
Strongheart, “one of the earliest canine film stars”
Rin Tin Tin
The Village People
Winnie the Pooh
All award-winning screen stars and/or notable musicians. See? Makes perfect sense.
