HOLLYWOOD, CA Tuesday Jan.10.2006 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Queen Latifah just got a star.

The singer/rapper/actress was honored last week with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Queen Latifah, whose real name is Dana Owens, is the first hip-hop artists to get a star on the famous walkway.

According to the Associated Press, Queen Latifah said about the honor, "I think the reason I am here is to inspire African-American women who are rappers, full-figured women to know that they can do it, too."

Watch for Queen Latifah, along with L.L. Cool J., in the forthcoming film "Last Holiday." The film hits theatres this Friday, January 13th.
