Carrie Underwood got emotional during her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony
The former American Idol winner was joined at today's ceremony by her frequent CMA Awards co-host Brad Paisley and former Idol judge Simon Cowell. “This shy lady walks in and sings ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’ and the show turned into full color," Cowell said of her first audition in 2004. "That was the effect Carrie had on me and the producers and we thought we may have found a great artist here." Underwood said of the honor: "How is this my life? How does a girl from Checotah, Oklahoma, get a star on the Walk of Fame? I will tell you: belief. So many people who have believed in me."

Jimmy Kimmel slams West Hollywood for trying to remove Donald Trump's star, even though it has no power to do so
Source: The Daily Beast
“Here’s the thing. Trump’s star isn’t in West Hollywood where they voted, it’s in Hollywood. And one has absolutely nothing to do with the other,” said Kimmel, whose talk show is taped half a block and across the street from Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star. "West Hollywood and Hollywood are like Virginia and West Virginia, they’re unrelated, which means there’s no reason for the West Hollywood City Council to be voting on this," Kimmel added. Trump received his Walk of Fame star in January 2007 for his work as Miss Universe pageant producer, although it was timed for The Apprentice: Los Angeles season. Meanwhile, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who used to be the L.A. City Council member for Hollywood, said he thinks Trump's star should stay put.

West Hollywood symbolically votes to urge the removal of Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star -- which he earned for Miss Universe pageant
The West Hollywood City Council doesn't have the power to remove the president's star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame because the star is not located in the city of West Hollywood -- it's located in the Hollywood district in the city of Los Angeles, in front of the Dolby Theatre where the Oscars are held. Nevertheless, the council made headlines on Monday by voting to call on Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which actually controls the Walk of Fame, to remove Trump's star. However, the Walk of Fame has a longstanding policy to never remove a celebrity's star for any reason. "Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk," the Chamber of Commerce's CEO said in 2015 when asked about removing Bill Cosby's star. Trump was presented with a Walk of Fame star in January 2007 timed with the premiere of The Apprentice: Los Angeles. Trump's star has been destroyed twice in the past two years, including last month by a man wielding a pickaxe. Trump's wasn't given a star for The Apprentice, however. He was honored for his work as producer of the Miss Universe pageant. The Walk of Fame bans reality TV stars, but like Trump, others (including Ryan Seacrest) have stars for their non-reality work.
