Legendary Diana Ross celebrated her 75th birthday with three pre-planned events

Ignoring the controversy over her recent support of the late Michael Jackson, the legendary Diana Ross celebrated her 75th birthday with three pre-planned events on Tuesday.

'Hooray! Choosing love and life. 75 is a good number. I'd like to continue feeling good like this forever LOVE appreciation to all,' the Detroit-born pop icon - who boasts 2.1M followers - tweeted.

'Evocation "Often" I thank the world, I thank the source, I thank the universe for my time here. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you - life and love you are incredible.' 

The twice-divorced grandmother-of-five has had a phenomenal career dating back to the 1960s when she fronted Motown girl group the Supremes (inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988).
Diana - who's sold over 100M records - has won a Grammy, a Golden Globe, Kennedy Center Honors, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
On Tuesday night, Ross will celebrate her milestone with family and friends onstage the Hollywood Palladium for a once-in-a-lifetime concert.

700 US theaters will screen a new two-hour documentary Diana Ross: Her Life, Love and Legacy - featuring never-before-seen footage from her 1983 Central Park concert - this Tuesday and Thursday. 
Her daughter Tracee (with ex-husband Robert Ellis Silberstein) led the celebrity tributes to the Oscar-nominate actress in the form of a charity shirt featuring the phrase, 'I'm Gonna Win.'

Phenomenal Woman recreated a T-shirt Diana had donned playing tennis in the seventies, and they're selling the $35 top with proceeds benefiting the Black women's political group, Higher Heights.

Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes and her actress (and legendary choreographer) Debbie Allen were among the famous faces donning the Diana tribute top.
