On August 22, the Hollywood Boulevard was filled with loads of love and support. On this day, Simon Cowell, “America’s Got Talent” creator and judge, received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. gettyimages
Joined by his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, their 3-year-old son Eric, and Lauren’s son Adam, the media mogul was all smiles posing for photographs. He also took the podium and delivered a speech, starting it with a joke: “Why did this take so long?”
In it, the star got emotional when he thanked his friends who came from the United Kingdom to celebrate the occasion, paid a touching tribute to his beloved partner, and honored his late parents. Simon also shared his thoughts on fame, and it looks like he’s totally satisfied with life in the spotlight:
If anyone says fame is a bad thing, I don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s the best thing in the world.
He truly deserved it!
Besides, did you know that star installment is not free at all? Since 2017, the fee for it has been increased from 30 to 40 thousand dollars! Luckily, celebrities usually don’t pay for it. Instead, movie studios and recording labels do.
Other stars, including Kelly Clarkson, joined in celebrations and shared the news on Twitter
