Simon Cowell, the British music mogul, television king, and the former Mr Nasty of talent shows, is officially a 'star' in his own right. 

Simon received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday and was obviously chuffed with the whole thing. 

Simon basked in the spotlight as he reflected on his career, which spans three decades, and his time  as a reality show judge, record producer and creator of long-running franchises "The X Factor," "America's Got Talent" and "Britain's Got Talent".

"If anyone says fame is a bad thing, I don't know what you're talking about. It's the best thing in the world,'' the 58-year-old said

Simon shot to mainstream fame in 2001 when he became a judge on one of the pioneering talent shows, Pop Idol, which gave Will Young and Gareth Gates their big breaks and gave birth to the shows we know and love like American Idol, The X Factor and Britain/America's Got Talent. 

He started his speech off with a typical Simon joke, ''why did this take so long? I’m kidding''

He went on to explain how he was a huge fan of America TV and movies growing up

''It is so surreal I cannot tell you. Lauren, you’ve been my rock for the past few years. Put up with everything I put up with, '' he addressed his girlfriend of five years and mother of his four-year-old son, Eric. 

''I was also thinking about today was who would have got a bigger kick out of this? My mom and dad. And they’re not here, but I have a feeling are looking down.''

His many protegees have been coming out with kind words as he accepts this honour.

He was accompanied by Kelly Clarkson, the first winner of American Idol.

She gushed about his talent for spotting authentic people with real talent. 

"He appreciates you being yourself, and that's very rare. In this industry I think people just want you to fit in to something," the Grammy-winning singer said.

He was joined at the unveiling by "America's Got Talent" judges Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B, British "X Factor" winner Leona Lewis and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson. 

Congrats Si, you've earned it!

Yesterday, Ryan Reynolds was honoured with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and if that wasn't enough, his children made their public debut too.

The parents are notoriously private about their daughters, so it's safe to say everyone went wild to catch the first glimpse of the little ones.

And it seems that this is the family that just keep on giving as Blake took to Instagram today to share the most adorable picture to congratulate her hubby.

Taking to the social media site, the former Gossip Girl star posted a picture of Ryan's star with her, Ryan's and James' feet standing around it.

She wrote: "Proud is a pitiful word to describe how I felt today. The permanence of your impact is undeniable.

"Always has been, but now we have a fancy [star] to show for it."

We don't think they could get any cuter!

It took a sledgehammer and a pick-axe, but Donald Trump's star on Hollywood's iconic Walk of Fame has been destroyed.

A member of the public, who identified himself as Jamie Otis, chose to disguise himself as a construction worker before taking the tools to Donald's star in the early hours of this morning.

On a relatively deserted Hollywood Boulevard, the man could be seen chipping away at the star, which Donald was honoured with in 2007, before eventually smashing it to pieces.

According to Deadline, the individual at the centre of the incident claimed his actions were in response to the presidential candidate's treatment of women – both in public and private.

He explained that he had been hoping to extract the star and auction it off in order to raise funds for women who have come forward to accuse Trump of sexually assaulting them in the past.

Daniel Radcliffe looked very dapper when he was given a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Thursday and the actor had a grin from ear to ear as he posed for photos beside his new achievement. How cute!

The 26-year-old told Variety, "It's really an incredible honour. We [Brits] have a national embarrassment about people saying nice things about us, so I was taken aback at first but then I had a real sense of gratitude."

"It's kind of amazing. I don't know if they remove these things, but no matter how badly I mess up, they can't remove it," he said. "It's a very transient industry, but there's something permanent about [the star]."

We're so glad Daniel finally has the recognition he always wanted and by the look on his face he's very happy too.
