Minnie Mouse has been in our lives for 90 amazing years, and there's no better way to celebrate those fruitful years than with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Joining her man Mickey Mouse and other Disney legends like Tinker Bell, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, Donald Duck, and more, Minnie will receive her star on Jan. 22 right in front of the El Capitan Theatre. "Minnie Mouse is a woman of the ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame!" Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, said in a statement. "Generations of fans of all ages have been looking forward to her seeing her bright new star.
But that's not all — Minnie will be presented the honor by Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger and Katy Perry. After the news was announced, Katy took to Twitter to share her excitement with her fans. "After 90 years of serving looks & smiles as the polka dot queen, it's time she got that recognition! It will be a childhood and grown adult dream come true for me that day!" she wrote, as seen below.

Just as when Mickey Mouse received his star on his 50th anniversary in 1978, Minnie's 90th celebration is beyond deserved. The ceremony will be streamed live on WalkOfFame.com, and you can find us rocking our rose gold Minnie ears with pride while we watch.
