Mariah Carey is a multi-platinum recording artist with countless GRAMMYs, but there was one milestone she had yet to achieve -- until now.
The 47-year-old singer was honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday, but told ET's Nancy O'Dell that it was she who felt honored.
"Oh my god, please! I'm just happy. I'm honored to be here," Carey insisted. "This is like a childhood dream. It's awesome."
"I've seen pictures of the moment, and this is like, the real version of it, being here, so it's a nice thing," she added.
Carey, who rocked a pair of stylist Louboutins for the ceremony, wasn't concerned about getting her shoes stuck in cerement.
"They weren't the most comfortable," she confessed. "But I'll always remember what they were for."
The mother of two recently gave Vogue a look inside her New York City closet, where Wednesday's heels will undoubtedly end up.
"I'm a shoe fanatic," she confessed, showing off walls lined with shelves of sparkling footwear. "I'm not as casual as most people."
