Mariah Carey is celebrating her 44th birthday today, so we put together three little known facts about the musical legend that you may or may not have known.

1. Mariah has a famous Godmother

Grammy Award-winning Patti LaBelle revealed just how amazing it is to be Mariah’s Godmum when she appeared on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’. They regularly party together in the Bahamas and her Goddaughter often sends her bottles of Cristal champagne and 100 to 200 white flowers, saying: “It’s just beautiful”.

2. Mariah studied cosmetology

It wasn’t all music for a teen Mariah, however, as she also had to earn money to support her singing dreams after she graduated from Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, New York in 1987.

She moved to Manhattan and did various jobs, including working as a waitress and a coat check girl, and also spent some time studying cosmetology on the side while she wrote songs at night.

3. Mariah insured her legs

When she was chosen to front Gillette’s Legs Of A Goddess campaign in 2006, the singer insured her legs for a cool $1billion.
