Shania to receive Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame - June 2, 2011


Shania fans got her nominated and put up money for the nomination.
And she got selected�to receive a star in 2007 but Shania or her management have yet to even contact the hollywood chambers to set a ceremony date.
Shania seems to run away from the people that want to honor her and that is an insult to the fans who put her name up to get nominated and of course the hollywood chambers selected her because she deserved to be selected.
Fans were excited to see the ceremony but Shania once again disappoints.
It seems that these last 4 years have been nothing but let downs if you are or were a Shania fan.

Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony?


I always thought is was weird that she was voted for the "Walk of Fame". Honestly, what does she have to do with Hollywood? I know it's probably for "entertainers", but most assume their from Hollywood.

The hollywood walk of fame hasn't different categories like Music,tv and stage.
Shania is one of the biggest stars of alltime so of course it was an obvious choice.
She doesn't have to be a hollywood actress to get a star. She just has to be a star of the highest calibre in her chosen category.

SHE’S STILL THE ONE!

SHANIA TWAIN TO BE HONORED WITH STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

WHO: Shania Twain
Emcee: Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, President/CEO Leron Gubler
Guest speaker: Bo Derek

WHAT: 2,442nd Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Category of Recording

WHERE: 6270 Hollywood Boulevard in front of W Hollywood Hotel

WHEN: Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 11:30 a.m.

Singer Shania Twain was born on August 28, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. She began performing at the age of 13 on CBC Television’s Tommy Hunter Show. While attending Timmins High and Vocational School in Timmins, she also sang for a local band called “Longshot.”

Shania Twain is a phenomenon. With more than 57 million albums sold in the U.S. and Canada, she is the top-selling female country artist of all time; has multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries; has the eighth-biggest selling album of all time in the U.S. and 18 top ten songs, 8 of which reached #1.

Most amazing of all, Shania has reached beyond all feasible music boundaries with just four studio albums – 3 of which have received Diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales of 10 million copies in the U.S. She is the only female artist to have three consecutive albums sell more than 10 million copies.

Though she released an album in the early 1990s with little fanfare, most people consider 1995’s The Woman In Me to be the first true Shania Twain album. That’s because, unlike her debut record, it contained songs that Twain herself wrote and delivered in her own distinctive way. Produced by former husband Mutt Lange, The Woman In Me stunned the country music world, brilliantly bringing a catchy pop sensibility to the genre.

“Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?," the first single from the album, made an impression, but the brash and sassy “Any Man of Mine” really set the tone for Twain’s impact on country music. A runaway hit, complemented by a video that showed Twain’s star power off to dazzling perfection, the song became her first #1 followed by the equally attitude-filled “(If You're Not In It For Love) I’m Outta Here!,” "You Win My Love" and the more low-key “No One Needs To Know.” The Woman In Me went on to sell more than 12 million copies in the U.S., replacing Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits as the best-selling album by a female country artist and earning Twain a Grammy in 1996 for “Best Country Album.”

She followed that remarkable success with Come On Over in 1997, which saw one single after the next become chart hits. “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!,” "That Don't Impress Me Much," “Love Gets Me Every Time” and “You’re Still The One” solidified her musical persona as a strong but playful woman who believed in and demanded true respect. With sales of 20 million in the U.S., the album became the biggest seller by a woman in any genre of music. Not only did Twain reach beyond country music to reach pop fans, she crossed oceans, becoming a top-selling artist worldwide.

In May of 1998, with two wildly-successful albums and enough hit songs for a solid show, Twain set out on her first headlining tour, Come On Over. Over the course of 19 months, she performed for more than 2.5 million screaming fans, silencing critics who wondered if she could re-create her music in a live setting. The tour was one of the highest-grossing tours in both 1998 and 1999 and became one of the biggest tours by a female musician in any genre. Having done what she came to do, Twain finally took a break.

She retreated to her home in Switzerland, had a baby boy in 2001 and generally lived her life for the next few years. Her distinctive voice was missed, and Country Music magazine ran an article that read like a letter to Twain, begging her to come back with more music. At the end of 2002 she did.

UP! didn’t disappoint. Released in the U.S. as a 2-CD set - one offering a country version of the songs, the other a pop mix of them - the album delighted fans, who snapped up nearly three million copies in the first 6 weeks of release. The first single, “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!,” showed that motherhood and time away had not altered Twain’s approach to her music. Time magazine called UP!, “Easily the best pop album of the year...with the kind of energy that reminds you how much fun the genre can be.”

Once again, the proof of Shania’s power as songwriter and performer was seen in the sales chart. UP!, certified at 10 million U.S. sales, made Twain the only artist in history to have three consecutive 10x Platinum RIAA-certified albums [the other two being The Woman In Me (12x platinum) and Come On Over (20x platinum)]. Her UP! tour was the top-grossing country tour of 2004, and often caused jaded music critics to talk in Shania-like exclamation points.

Twain’s most recent album is Shania Twain Greatest Hits and with her previous powerhouse albums to draw from, the record is the ultimate exclamation point to her career so far.

Twain’s highly anticipated memoir From This Moment On was recently released on May 3 and quickly climbed the New York Times best-sellers list. Twain’s docu-series “Why Not? With Shania Twain” premiered May 8, exclusively on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network to rave reviews and record-breaking viewership for the network. Airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the series takes an intimate look at the amazing journey of the music superstar who, by the age of 21, had survived a childhood of poverty, the loss of both parents in a devastating accident and how she went on to become the best-selling female artist in country music history.

Shania Twain works tirelessly with the following charities: Shania Kids Can, Second Harvest Food Banks, Swiss Red Cross and many others.

It should come as no surprise that what Shania was thinking in 2008 may not be what she is thinking in 2011.  She's hardly the most consistant person, after all.

Shania to receive Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame - June 2, 2011


Shania Twain gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame (Video)

Posted 06/02/2011 1:56 PM PT by Olivia Allin

Shania Twain was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, June 2.

The 45-year-old Grammy winning country singer is known for songs like "You're Still the One," "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" and "That Don't Impress Me Much."

Twain received the 2,442nd star in the Recording category and it is located at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of the W Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. Wearing a white blouse and slim black pants, the singer accepted the honor at a ceremony hosted by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

"Putting things into perspective - there's nothing like a child to help you do that," Twain said. "A few years ago, it was my 6-year-old son's first day at a new school. I was putting him on the school bus and a little girl already on the school bus recognized me and said, 'Shania Twain! You're a star!' I just smiled at her enthusiasm, not sure what else to say."

"I mean why is a girl from Timmins, Ontario standing here, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?" she added. "I really don't know. Where I come from and where I am today... it's a small miracle, to be honest, that I am here today."

The singer, who was named Eilleen Regina Edwards when she was born, grew up in Ontario, Canada. She first sang on CBC television's "Tommy Hunter Show" when she was just 13-years-old. She was also the lead singer in a local cover band called Longshot.

Twain grew up with two sisters and two half brothers and in 1987, her mother and stepfather were killed in a car accident. At age 22, Twain became her younger siblings' guardian.

In 1993, Twain released her self-titled debut album in North America, which received positive reviews. But her third album, "Come On Over" is what launched her career, selling over 39 million copies worldwide. Singles from the album earned Twain four Grammy Awards.

She last released a studio album in 2002. The record, "Up!" has sold more than 11 million copies in the United States.

In 2008, Twain and her first husband Robert "Mutt" Lange, a record producer and the father of her son Eja, 9, separated after 14 years of marriage.

The country and pop star has been speaking to the press recently to promote her new memoir, "From This Moment On," which she read from at the ceremony. In the book, Twain talks about struggling with her ex-husband, who allegedly cheated on her.

The singer would later learn that he was involved with her assistant and close friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud. She and Lange have not confirmed they were involved at the time. After Twain and Lange divorced, the singer married the bearer of the bad news - Thiebaud's husband, Frederic.

Her new OWN reality series, "Why Not?," which also showcases her struggle and her journey to regain her voice after the scandal, debuted on May 8. The show gave Oprah Winfrey's new cable network its highest premiere ratings.

"That is the truth of being a star," Twain said later in the ceremony. "Our job is to make you happy and entertain you, come thick or thin - and I can tell you that I do that with the greatest of pleasure. Thank you all so much!"

Star Spotting: Shania Twain's Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star Prompts Makeout Session!


Credit: Jason Merritt/ Getty Images

Today, Shania Twain was awarded one of the top honors you can receive if you're a musician. No, not a personalized tweet from Tyler, The Creator. She received her very own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Lady deserves it, too! First of all, "That Don't Impress Me Much" still impresses me every time I use it to Rick Roll someone (try it -- so funny!), and for real, "Forever And Forever Always" is one of the most hauntingly gorgeous love songs I know. It's not easy to write a love song that's beautiful but not mortifyingly cheesy.

And speaking of love, Shania Twain's been through it. For some MASSIVELY INSANE REASON, her ex-husband Mutt Lange allegedly cheated on her with her good friend. WHO would cheat on Shania Twain? LOOK at her! Regardless of what pushy plastic surgeons might tell you, you can't manufacture perfection like that, no matter how much money you have.

So, Shania ended up marrying the guy you see below, Frederic Thiebaud, who was the ex-husband of the dude Shania's ex apparently got with (!!!) It was kinda like "Wife Swap" but in a sadder, real-life way.

Anyway, Shania married that hot French dude (sorry, but it's an empirical truth that he's hotter than Mutt Lange, and his name doesn't remind me of those commercials about those sad little dogs who need to be adopted), she has a best-selling book and a reality show, Why Not? With Shania Twain, on Oprah's new network, and she just got a star on the walk of fame. All very good reasons to engage in a full-on makeout sesh with your hot French husband in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard. Treated!

BOOYAH, Mutt Lange!

Hollywood’s Walk of Fame: Guy Laliberte, Celine Dion, Shania Twain

Posted by: Pat Donnelly
September 28, 2011. 5:53 pm

I set out to walk the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard last weekend not realizing how long it took to get from the Kodak Theatre to the famous corner of Hollywood and Vine.  I really wasn’t expecting to see such a derelict street, with so many shuttered businesses, so many cracks in the sidewalk, so many economically desperate people whose dreams have been irrevocably broken. It was tough keeping my eyes on the names written on the pink stars embedded the sidewalk, as I kept getting distracted by the graffiti, the tattoo parlours, the tacky souvenir shops.

 Some stars have far better placement than others. Canadians seem to have garnered some of the better sidewalk real estate. Shania Twain’s star is in a fairly posh location near the corner of Hollywood and Vine. Donald Sutherland, and son Kiefer Sutherland have stars next to each other on a relatively upscale portion of the walk a few blocks west of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, on the other side of the street.

As for Celine Dion and Guy Laliberte, their stars are right out in front of the Kodak Theatre. Prime real estate. Ironically, however, these two weren’t easy to find last weekend as they got covered over by the red carpet and party setup created for the opening of the Cirque du Soleil’s IRIS. It was only the next day, as the tear-down of the huge party structure progressed, that I was able to find the spots where Laliberte and Dion are honored.

The whole Walk of Fame thing is a rather bizarre, outdated phenomenon (so many stars have faded out of contemporary recognition but not off the sidewalk). But tourists love it, adopting a stock crouch-and-point pose for their travel partner’s camera. I wonder how the local municipal government handles maintenance issues, which must be complicated and costly.

4 Years Ago: Shania Twain Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

By Gayle Thompson | June 2, 2015 10:00 AM

Four years ago today, on June 2, 2011, Shania Twain‘s celebrity status reached a new level. It was on this day that the singer received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, celebrating almost two decades of success in the music industry.

Twain’s star was unveiled by President and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Leron Gubler and model and actress Bo Derek. Twain, who has sold more than 75 million albums, admitted that she was humbled by the accomplishment. She thanked her sister Carrie and her husband Fred, calling them “her foundation,” before acknowledging how surreal the moment was for her.

“Why is a girl from Timmins, Ontario, standing here, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I really don’t know,” Twain said during the ceremony. “Where I come from and where I am today, it’s a small miracle, to be honest, that I am standing here. But I am here to accept an incredible honor and to give thanks for my star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s so surreal.”

Twain also read excerpts from her autobiography, From This Moment On, during the ceremony, citing an example from the pages about when her son Eja first realized his mother was famous, as well as from the section about her realization that her voice was not performing as well as it had been in the past.

The Canadian-born country star revealed in 2011 that she had been diagnosed with dysphonia, a vocal condition that caused the muscles in her throat to squeeze her voice box. Although she was unsure if she would be able to sing again, she made a full recovery and enjoyed a two-year residency, Shania: Still the One, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, from 2012 to 2014.

Twain is one of several country artists, including Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Kenny Rogers and Rascal Flatts, who have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Remember When Shania Twain Got a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

By Sterling Whitaker | Taste of Country | June 2, 2018

Shania Twain joined an exclusive celebrity club when she earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on June 2, 2011.

Twain is the best-selling female artist in country music history, having sold more than 75 million albums combined. She's made history more than once; On Nov. 17, 1997, her second album, The Woman in Me, was awarded diamond certification from the RIAA, making Twain the first female country artist to ever sell 10 million copies of a record. Her third album, 1997's Come on Over, sold more than 40 million copies, and it's still the best-selling album by a female artist of all time in any genre.

President and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Leron Gubler and Bo Derek were on hand at Twain's ceremony to reveal her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In her acceptance speech, the country superstar professed disbelief at how her life and career had turned out.

"Why is a girl from Timmins, Ontario, standing here, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I really don’t know," Twain reflected. "Where I come from and where I am today, it’s a small miracle, to be honest, that I am standing here. But I am here to accept an incredible honor and to give thanks for my star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's so surreal."

She was battling dysphonia at the time of her Walk of Fame ceremony, and it was unclear of Twain would ever sing again. But she recovered and returned to the stage in 2012 for a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that lasted until 2014.

After a 15-year break between albums, Twain released her most recent album, Now, in September of 2017. That album debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.
