Birthday shoutouts to Christina Milian as she celebrates her 40th...

Happy 40th Birthday to Christina Milian (who shares the exact same birthday as her husband Matt Pokora, how awesome). These days, the married mother of three is enjoying a career pivot as a Netflix romcom queen, and I'm not even mad at it. She never quite got the musical success she deserved and her chart career was relatively short, with just five top 10s between 2002 and 2007. 

It's hard to understand why because she had the entire package; catchy pop tunes, a beautiful face, stage presence, likability. Christina should have been the Latina equivalent to Britney Spears. Maybe she didn't have the right team behind her, who knows? But to this day, it still remains a mystery as to why she didn't blow up. She should have done after the success of 'Dip It Low,' which was her biggest single to date, topping the dance charts and reaching #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. And on that note, I am going to go listen to her 'So Amazin' album, because it really is so amazing.

As Christina turns 40 today, Beyoncé wishes her a happy birthday on

I wish her music career was more successful and went on longer. She was a brilliant popstar, I still listen to her albums to this day.

Her singles run in the UK is just stellar, they all went top 5 besides Whatever U Want which was top 10. Oh well at least her acting career is still doing decently.

I was listening to the Jazmine Sullivan demo of "Say I" recently. I wish they'd duetted on it.
