    Earlier this week, Pink was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and took the opportunity to reflect on her long career and achievements.

    “I feel like a lot of people only ever thought I’d make it to the Walk of Shame, but here I am. Two letters make such a big difference,” she quipped.

    “It has been a trip lately, thinking back over the course of this career that I’ve somehow managed to have,” she added, more seriously. “I thought I could have a hit record, but I never thought in my wildest dreams that I could have two decades of this insane fun with a family of people that I love traveling the world with.”

    Since signing her first record deal 23 years ago, the pop star has won three Grammys, released seven studio albums and had hits like “Who Knew,” “Just Like a Pill,” “So What” and “What About Us.”

    According to Variety, Pink’s new star is located in front of the Dolby Theater, and is in good company: It’s adjacent to Jackie Chan and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s stars.
