Mariah gets her star, will star in Empire

Mariah gets her star, will star in Empire

Mariah Carey became the 2556th celebrity to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And her star is about to get bigger. Among the famous friends who made introductions at Wednesday’s ceremony was director Lee Daniels, who dropped the bombshell that Mariah would have a starring role in season two of his smash Fox hit Empire.  Can you imagine Cookie butting heads with Mimi? Fox did not confirm the news, but coming from Lee Daniels, we’ve gotta think it’s true.  Said Lee at the ceremony “Listen to me carefully. She is the queen. She is the one.” Quite a step up from Glitter, wouldn’t you agree?
