Music icon Prince was offered a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on two occasions and said – no…
The Hollywood Walk of Fame shared via Facebook that Friday:
“Prince was approached on two occasions about the possibility of being nominated for a star and he stated that the timing was not right.”
Ana Martinez, producer of Walk of Fame ceremonies, also said in a statement that Prince never submitted an application to be considered for a star, but that he can still be honored posthumously.
“A posthumous nomination has a five-year waiting period in order to put forth paperwork for consideration. We hope his family will do that when the time comes.”
Although Prince doesn’t yet have a place on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Black Lives Matter paid tribute to the icon with their own purple star.
