Happy Birthday, Mariah Carey! We're not sure how old the singer is (some sources say she's turning 42, others say she's now 43), but we hope she has a great day nonetheless.

Carey is one of the last of her kind, a singer who sold CDs and made fun music videos that fans couldn't wait to see.

She's had quite a year. She collaborated with Justin Bieber for his Christmas CD, had twin babies with husband Nick Cannon, and became a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig.

On a more personal level, she stuck by her man as he dealt with health issues. Cannon had mild kidney failure and lung problems that were caused by a form of lupus.

Cannon publicly praised his wife at the BET Honors in January for helping him get through the tough time.

Here are photos of Carey throughout the years. She's come a long way!
