The older we get, the more this whole "Mid-Life Crisis" deal seems to be a real thing. Based on how Hello Kitty is celebrating her 40th in Los Angeles, it seems as though she's going through some heavy stuff herself.

Happy birthday Kitty!! Just like Paris Hilton, Hello Kitty is celebrating her 40th all over the world. After some parties in Tokyo, she flew to Los Angeles to celebrate her big Four-O with an exhibition that started on October 11 at the Japanese American National Museum. After all, Kitty HAS been in the limelight for 40 years, and she sure seems like she's enjoying this big milestone.

This exhibition is the first of its kind in America, with over 500 Kitty items exhibited for the public. After some photos emerged online of her in Japan, many of her fans were kind of taken aback by Kitty's outfits and perceived way of celebrating her big birthday.

"What happened to her?" and "Is she okay?" were some of the comments posted online. Apparently, many fans have seen Kitty dress up all crazy before, but not like this.

But that's sometimes the problem with people who claim they care about you the most. In reality, all they want is for you to be who they want you to be, and it's never really about being happy for you, unconditionally. So if Kitty could talk, I'm sure she'd tell these complaining fans to mind their own business!

"What happened to her?" (this appearance irked some fans)
