Mariah Carey is a total DIVA — divine, inspirational, virtuous and anointed with a five-octave vocal talent. With five Grammy awards, 18 #1 singles, and 200 million records sold worldwide, Mimi is one of the greatest women in music and is quite the mogul too. Perfume, jewelry, shoes and most recently the new global ambassador for Jenny Craig, no wonder people are obsessed with Mimi. We are too! As if Mariah’s relationship with her husband Nick Cannon isn’t completely adorbs, her two bundles of joy twins Monroe and Moroccan totally melt our hearts.
Over the last two decades, Mimi has evolved into a force to be reckoned with. Her look has definitely changed along the way too. From a shy, curly-brown-haired girl to a confident, bodacious, blond woman, Mariah has undergone quite a few changes. To celebrate Mariah’s 42nd birthday, let’s take a little trip down memory lane. Check out these 42 pics of Mimi’s Metamorphosis and join us in wishing her a happy birthday!

Since stealing our hearts with 2004’s “She Will Be Loved,” Maroon 5 frontman and Voice judge Adam Levine has had a steady stream of hits, accompanied by a growing collection of tattoos and heart-fluttering music videos. With sometimes shirtless, always sexy performances and ultra chic red carpet style, Levine is perpetually making our heartstrings “Move Like Jagger” (sorry).
While Adam likely rings in #33 alongside his supermodel girlfriend Anne V, us common folk can gander at these 33 piping hot pics. Drool away, dear readers.
Voluptuous vixen Coco turns 33 today, and you know she has a lot to celebrate. Thanks to her — assets, she’s made quite the name for herself. The buxom blonde started as a model in her teen years. At age 18, she went on to compete in fitness competitions, even winning the Mexican title, Miss Ujena Fitness. Then she branched out into acting and made her way into some low-budget films. It was on set where she met her current husband of 10 years, Ice-T.
Given the short life of most celebrity couples their decade together is remarkable. Their secret? Taken straight from her Twitter, here’s some relationship advice in under 140 characters: “Don’t touch a black man’s Kool aide, there may be some consequences.” We’re watching E!’s Ice Loves Coco to figure out what the heck that means.
Coco loves her curvacious body, and she knows we do too! Never one to be shy in front of the camera, the starlet posed for Playboy in 2008. Using her, um, “talents,” she managed to market herself as a web-personality and has her own fashion line.
We here at theFablife hate to follow the pack, so rather than celebrating Coco’s 33 years with pics of her more obvious assets, we thought we’d take a minute to point out all the other beautiful things that we, and Ice-T, love about her.
Talk about tat-tat tatted up. Queen of ink Kat Von D has more tattoos than anyone could count in one sitting. We tried. AnKat has come a long way since her first tattoo job at 14. After appearing on both Miami Ink and her own show, L.A. Ink, which was canceled last year, Kat has become one of the most sought after artists in the industry. She’s also inked some paper with two best-selling books. And with a makeup line, an art gallery, a hefty list of top clientele and her first album on the way, Kat’s permanently marked herself a business woman. Sorry, fans, but snagging a seat in Kat’s chair at High Voltage Tattoo is a pretty difficult feat: the wait list is almost two years. Some of us will just look on from afar, admiring her work, and tut-tutting about her hook-up and breakup from ex-fiance Jesse James. Not that we think she’ll stay single for long — this lady she pulls off that whole tough yet feminine yet super sexy look pretty well.
Kat Von D turns 30 today, and in honor of her birthday, here are 30 pics of some of Kat’s own, personal ink, including the infamous Jesse James’ tattoo. Happy Birthday, Kat!

You know what they say about a man with big feet…he wears big shoes. At 7’1″ tall, Shaquille O’Neal definitely wears some big ones, size 23 to be exact. But that’s not all that’s big about this powerhouse on and off the court. In his 18 years of professional basketball (which just ended last season), Shaq’s managed to snag four championship rings and several Player of the Year titles. Shaq Diesel has held an interesting career as both rapper and actor too. He has released five studio albums (I didn’t know it was that many either), including 2003’s Shaq Diesel, which went platinum. No wonder he calls himself Superman. Although the basketball giant is no longer dunking on his opponents, he’s still winning with his girlfriend, Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, to whom he was once rumored to be engaged almost two years ago, though we’ve still heard no wedding bells. With five kids, a main squeeze, a wonderful career to look back on, and an indoor movie theater, birthday boy Shaq has little to ask for today. Since we love looking at Shaq’s 23-inch height difference between him and Hoopz, here are 40 pics of Shaq towering over other famous shorties. Happy 4-0 Shaq!

Oh Jessica Biel, why must you be so perfect? Today Jessica turns 30 and it doesn’t look like she needs to make any birthday wishes. The girl’s got it all. After kicking off her acting career at the age of 14 on 7th Heaven, she quickly strove to shed the show’s wholesome image and became a sex symbol in flicks like Summer Catch and The Rules of Attraction, before going for higher-minded fare, like 2006’s The Illusionist, opposite Edward Norton. As if her cake needed cherries on top, Jess snagged Justin Timberlake in 2007. Ms. Biel now totes a big ring on her finger, after JT’s grandmother confirmed the two have been engaged since December. Jelz much? Between movie roles and a crazy cute beau, Jessica manages to rock some serious fashion effortlessly, even if it is casual Thursday. JTimb’s isn’t the only one bringing sexy back, literally. Whether you want to admire Jessica’s subtle sexy wardrobe or how she’s managed to maintain such a fantastic physique, here’s 30 pics of the birthday girl through the years.

Nothing says rock-n-roll like entering your sixth decade, right? Or something like that. Anyway, today is rock legend Jon Bon Jovi’s 50th! Since 1983, Bon Jovi has toured with and without his eponymous band for almost three decades, sold over 130 million albums worldwide, and spawned some of the greatest rock anthems ever, and somehow doesn’t show the wear and tear of life on the road. While singing of those striving youths of New Jersey, Jon’s also cashed in on his other skills, showing off his lusciously feathered locks and hard-rock abs as a model and actor. In 1996, Gianni Versace personally selected him as the face of Versace’s spring ad campaign. And we have a soft spot for his 1999 guest stint in an episode of Sex and the City, where he played Seth, a guy who frustratingly became disinterested with Carrie after sleeping with her. (The opposite is hardly true — we’ll never be disinterested with him!) Showing his softer side, singer has donated to charitable causes and raised money for the Special Olympics and Red Cross. Jon’s still giving love a good name: He and wife Dorothea Hurley currently raise their family in Jersey. Wish JBJ a happy birthday as you check out how he’s aged (barely) through the years:

News flash: Ke$ha is a party animal. The tattoo artist by day, electro-pop star by night recently revealed that favorite pastimes are making her assistant dress up in a penis costume and holding nude parties. When the singer-songwriter isn’t killing the stage with raunchy moves and some pretty provocative outfits, Ke$ha is comparing herself to Diddy. As if having the #1 album in 2010 with Animal wasn’t a big deal, our favorite wild child looks to claim the top spot again this year. The “Tik Tok” singer said she’s aiming to reinvent pop music with her next album scheduled to release May 2012, which she’s recorded all while on tour this past year. Ke$ha clearly loves her fishnets, feathers, and her gold tooth — despite how good she looked in her recent make-under. In honor of her 25th birthday, Ke$ha already shared a photo of her new, studly hairdo. We’d like to keep the party going with 25 pics of Ke$ha’s wildest poses.

Finally, Justin Bieber is legal! Um, did we say that out loud? What we mean is, it’s comforting that Justin’s mature fans won’t feel bad for admiring those shirtless pics. JB’s been making steps toward a more “grown” Justin since he chopped his hair and snagged long-term GF Selena Gomez. What’s next for the Canadian crooner? Well, we know he plans to publish a second book titled Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started in September, following the success of his first book, Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story, which sold millions. Justin also plans to release the first single off his third studio album Believe sometime this month, he announced via Twitter. Justin has grown into quite the young man before our eyes and he’s only making leaps and bounds in his career.
Most wouldn’t consider JB a bad boy, but he has a couple of incriminating photos we could definitely add to his clean rap sheet. As we celebrate him hitting the big 1-8, here are 18 photos of Justin committing crimes of age, love and traffic violations. Happy Birthday, Justin!

Happy 25th birthday, Ke$ha! New age, new hairdo. The singer tweeted this photograph yesterday with a simple message that read, “Is happening.” That could be read in tandem with the tweet right before it which said, “My next haircut?” Are those metal studs being attached to her head? Hard-core! It’s so totally different from Ke$ha’s March issue Glamour “makeunder,” but we still think it’s bad-ass. We also hope someone’s bought her her very own penis costume? Go ahead and brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack, on us, gurl! And if you need any brushing up on some party-hearty moves, then lets learn from the best.
