Speaking to the crowd, P!nk said: "This is surreal. It has been a trip lately thinking back over the course of this career I've somehow managed to have. I signed my first record deal 23 years ago."

She went on to discuss the obstacles she's managed to overcome throughout her impressive career, including dropping out of a girl group to go solo and getting clean from drugs.

"I have achieved exactly what I wanted to achieve. Because I always knew what my strong points were. I don't sell sex, I don't sell perfume, I'm not the prettiest, I'm not the best. I'm f-king hard-looking and I have enough talent and I work on my f*king craft and I put my head down and I win.

"And I charge and I charge and I charge. And I don't give up. So when I wasn't selling records, I was still selling out arenas. I didn't need to win any popularity contests, I wanted to be a f*king touring artist and I wanted to be great at what I did. And at almost 40 years old, I can say I'm great at what I do."

P!nk was also joined by chat show host Ellen DeGeneres and comedian Kerri Kenney-Silver who spoke at the ceremony.

According to Variety, P!nk's star is located in between Jackie Chan and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's, right in front of the Dolby Theatre, which is pretty impressive place to be remembered in history.
