ALISON BOSHOFF: Legendary performer Billy Idol is upstaged by his mini rock star granddaughter Poppy, 2, at Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony

He has been famous for almost 50 years but Billy Idol was nearly upstaged by his granddaughter when he received a Hollywood Walk of Fame star last week.

Luckily Idol, 67, dotes on two-year-old Poppy Rebel, who sported a black dress and heart-shaped shades.

The youngster also displayed a rock’n’roll attitude (she did the ‘Wednesday dance’ from the Tim Burton series) her grandad would be proud of.

Rebel Yell star Idol, who grew up in Bromley, was famous for being a punk with a history of wild behaviour and drug issues. But he is a softie where family are concerned.

During lockdown he was filmed playing Baby Shark for Poppy — on the xylophone. Poppy’s mum is Bonnie Blue, his daughter by Linda Mathis.

Billy also enjoyed a sweet smooch with longtime girlfriend China Chow as he was finally honored with a star.

The legendary rocker and 48-year-old British-born American actress and model put on an amorous display at the ceremony which took place on Friday.

China – who was previously romantically linked to Keanu Reeves – has been in a relationship with the rocker since February 2018.

Billy was also joined by his children Willem Broad, 34, and Bonnie Broad, 33.

He emotionally thanked his fans at the event as he said at the podium: ‘You are the best. Quite simply, I’m here today because of you, because of your love.

‘You supported me all this time. Forty-seven years now I’ve been doing this.’

Billy first achieved fame in the 1970s as he made his name in the London punk rock scene – led by bands like the Sex Pistols – as the lead singer of the band Generation X.

He later embarked on a solo career in 1981 after moving to New York City and worked with guitarist Steve Stevens as he quickly earned fame via music videos of singles Dancing With Myself and White Wedding.

In 1983, he really hit it big with his second studio album titled Rebel Yell through the titular single and Eyes Without A Face as the record went double platinum.
