LOS ANGELES May 20 (Reuters) - - Singer and actress Cher turned 70 on Friday, prompting fans to take to Twitter to celebrate the pop diva's career spanning over five decades.

The California native gained musical recognition as part of duo Sonny & Cher in the 1960s before embarking on a solo career that made her a household name, with hits such as "Dark Lady," "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe."

Fans marked the occasion by posting their favorite pictures of the music star, who has some 25 studio albums, a Grammy Award as well as an Oscar to her name, on Twitter.
