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)

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.
