Talking point, cultural challenge: who's done the greatest self reinvention?

Alanis Morissette? (She started her career in what Wikipedia calls dance pop. She became one of the fixtures of alternative music) http://cultureby.com/2008/01/tim-oreilly-now.html.

Other candidates?

One vein here are people who enter popular culture as comedians and then take the world by storm in another capacity. Actors, chiefly. Oprah began as a TV journalist, I think. But really what we are looking for here is people who enter popular culture in one persona and then manage to morph to match a new era. Would Johnny Depp be a case in point. Your thoughts please.
