Today we celebrate Thalía’s 51st birthday! Did you think we’d forget to celebrate the pop goddess’ big day?

In complete Virgo fashion, she’s been celebrating all week long. And we don’t blame her – we don’t expect less from the high-profile Mexican actress and singer born Ariadna Thalía Sodi Miranda on Aug. 26, 1971. It’s hard to imagine being in the spotlight since nine years old, but the queen thrives and continues to stay relevant – even to this day as an avid user of TikTok. 

To celebrate her stardom, here are three iconic moments in which the Latina superstar made us forget about the world. 

When Thalía released “Arrasando” in 2000

You’ve been living under a rock if you haven’t heard this jam. Have you tried doing karaoke to this particular 2000s song? It’s one of her classic hits – YHLQMDLG style. With a chorus like: “Arrasando con la vida / Cosechando la alegría / No hay obstáculo que me impida / Disfrutar de un nuevo día / Arrasando con lo bueno / Desechando todo lo malo / No hay oscuridad que cubra / Esta luz que en mi deslumbra,” it’s hard not to get into a rebellious mood. Two years later, she released “A Quien Le Importa,” with an even more nonconformist vibe. What can we say? She’s an unapologetic chingona.

When Thalía’s TikToks go viral

Yup, you read that right. She’s not shy on social media. In fact, her presence often goes viral on the platform. She also often recreates “duos” to her favorite fan posts and recreates trends she sees. A recent viral audio was from her song “Miramar.” The video’s gist pulls a person’s hair and recording their reaction. “Waoo, I loved this trend 🤣🙌🏼 Keep tagging me in your videos; I’ll share my favorites ❤️,” she wrote on TikTok.

When she posts about her love, Tommy Mottola

Although the couple’s relationship has always been in the news (for starters, he’s 22 years older than her), her posts on social media make it appear that it’s all rainbows and butterflies. Drama aside, we can appreciate the cheesiness; it’s nice to read her appreciative words to her husband of over two decades. Her most recent birthday post to him reads: “Happy Birthday to my love @tommymottola one more year celebrating my prince charming. 💙 I love you! I wish you lots of health, happiness, and love in this new year of life. 🎉 Your children and I celebrate your life, my love.😍💋💋”
