Ricky Martin received a star on the Walk of Fame today, the most illustrious Puerto Rican studcake to be bestowed with that greatest of purchasable Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honors since Eric Estrada flicked his trademarked thumbs-up for the gathered fan.

Martin's ceremony was no less a display of controlled hysteria, his appreciative statements nearly drowned out by the piercing screams of hundreds of screaming women and high-pitched men, hoisting some of the most elaborate hand-woven fan tapestries we've seen since the expansive Jamie Foxx Quilt carpeted the Hollywood & Highland central courtyard.
