John Lennon 's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was in need of some cleaning after it was vandalized recently.
Graffiti was discovered on the star last Saturday. As seen in a photo published on The Hollywood Reporter 's website, various messages were written on the star, including "It cost a lot 2 win + even more 2 lose" and "Blackbird...rain was here."
A smiley face, a heart and other symbols were also drawn on the star.
The folks who run the Hollywood Walk of Fame were contacted about the vandalism, and the star was cleaned on Monday.
Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez says Capitol Records -- The Beatles ' label, which is located near the star -- is "looking into seeing if there's any video [of the crime]." She says of the Walk of Fame stars, "They're registered state landmarks. Those are my babies!"
Wednesday will mark what would have been John Lennon's 73rd birthday.
