Mariah Carey and her backup dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka headed to the TCL Chinese Theater to add her foot and handprints to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


The singer has recorded 18 No. 1 hits on the Billboard charts, second only to the Beatles. On Wednesday, she immortalized her place in history with a square, and the diva chose a unique way of doing so. Carey opted not to remove her $900 Christian Louboutin high heels for the event, so her footprints are in the shape of a heel and toe.

“Wearing those shoes and trying to balance and everything is not an easy feat,” the 47-year-old admitted. She also wore a tight-fitting black dress with fishnet stockings and diamond jewelry for the occasion. “It’s something that feels very humbling, and I feel honored by it,” the singer said of earning her spot at the theater.

“Thank you to all my friends and fans who came to celebrate with me today at the @chinesetheatres 🎉🎉 ✋️👠 Special thanks to Lee Daniels @theoriginalbigdaddy,” she said in an Instagram post.

Carey and Tanaka, 33, have been dating on and off for about a year, with the latter having toured for Carey in 2016. They made it official shortly after Carey’s engagement to James Packer was called off.
