Jody Miller, Singer of ‘Queen of the House’ and More, Dies at 80
Jody Miller, the singer who took her life on in 1980 after a failed stint as a drag performer, is to be honored with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The singer/songwriter, who is also known as the queen of the House, will have her star installed on the Walk of Fame early next year. Miller died of cancer on Feb. 21, but her family hopes the honor will go a step further.
“She’s going to have her stars put on the Walk of Fame in California early next year,” Miller’s son, Jason Miller, told Vulture on Thursday. “It’s been a goal for a long time, but we’ve been working on it for a pretty long time and she’s been working on it for a while, so we finally get there. … I hope it’s in time for her to walk on it.”

The star will be the second to have been installed in the Hollywood Walk of Fame after Whitney Houston, who died in 2008 at the age of 30. Her star is now in Hollywood and was on the Walk of Fame for five years before Houston’s star was installed.
