Today we raise a toast to Cher, one of the LGBT community's most outspoken allies, as the singer, actress, and social activist (and lively Twitter personality!) turns 70 years old.
Let's take a look back through the decades at some highlights from the birthday girl's musical career. Notice how often during the 1960s and 1970s the solo Cher competed with her famous pop duo Sonny & Cher for Top 10 pop hits in the Billboard Hot 100? This was something hubby Sonny Bono encouraged — at first.
Notice too how the solo star went on to have Billboard Top 10 hits spanning four decades. (Six decades if you count her hits on the Billboard dance charts, and why not?) There's a reason she's a legend, folks!
