The Artist: Mariah Carey
Her Original Image: It's kind of hard to believe today. But in the mid-1990s, Mariah Carey wasn't sexual at all in her music or her image. On her first five albums, she stuck to singing and didn't seem to worry too much about how she looked while she was doing it.
How She Changed It: After he marriage to Tommy Mottola deteriorated in 1997, Mariah started working on her sixth album, Butterfly, and approached it from a whole new angle. Not only did she sing differently, but she also talked about issues pertaining to sex and started wearing more revealing outfits on a regular basis. It was both a personal and a professional transformation.
