Born -- March 27, 1969
Huntington, New York, U.S.

Most successful female singer-songwriter of all time … has a five-octave vocal range and an affinity for butterflies.

Was a backup singer for Brenda Starr … signed with Columbia Records in 1990 … cranked out four consecutive hits … won two Grammys.

Married Columbia executive Tommy Mottola in '93 … got divorced in '98 … dated musician Luis Miguel, the "Elvis of Mexico".

Signed the largest record contract in history with Virgin Records in 2001 for $80 million. Got bought out in 2002 for $28 million.

Made her feature film debut with "Glitter" and everything kind of got weird for a while. Remember when Mariah passed out popsicles and yabbered on about some pretty random stuff during a surprise appearance on "TRL"? Yeah, she checked into a mental facility pretty soon after that.

Made her comeback in 2005 with "The Emancipation of Mimi," which got her three more Grammy Awards. Married "America’s Got Talent" host Nick Cannon in 2008 … gave birth in 2011 to twins at the ripe age of 41.
