The star, the 2,423rd on the famous sidewalk roll call of celebrities past and present, was unveiled nine days before her acting skills go on display when Burlesque hits the silver screen, co-starring Cher.

“As a young girl in Pittsburgh, I often imagined what it would be like to come to Hollywood and make it as a performer,” the 29-year-old told screaming fans on Hollywood Boulevard.

“We would go from audition to audition and I would sing anthem after anthem ... hoping one day it would all pay off. Standing here at this moment I know that it has paid off in spades,” she added.

Ready for Burlesque

In Burlesque, she plays a small-town girl who makes her way to a Los Angeles burlesque club to pursue her dreams. Aguilera also wrote and recorded four new songs for the musical’s soundtrack.

At a weekend presentation of the film Aguilera said, “I’ve always been a hard worker.

“I like to learn from others and have new challenges, and I think that’s what happening to me now in my life. Many changes, a movie, a new album, and a star in Hollywood — many changes.”
