People Who Drastically Changed Themselves To Get Famous

Recently, 22-year-old Bree Boyce was crowned Miss South Carolina after admitting to the world that she had dropped more than 110 pounds. After winning, she instantly hit the talk show circuit to talk about her transformation and now has a chance at becoming Miss America. Here's a look at the before and after:

It’s crazy looking at the old Bree and new Bree and recognizing that it’s the same girl, which got me thinking about other people who have drastically changed everything about themselves to become famous.

 

6. Heidi Montag

There was a time when Heidi Montag was just second fiddle to Lauren Conrad’s drama. Then she started dating Spencer Pratt and went from an average-looking girl to a plastic-surgery obsessed Barbie doll wannabe. She got the tabloid publicity she wanted and her storyline on The Hills grew along with her chest size.

5. Holly Madison

It’s hard to imagine looking at this before picture that Holly Madison would one day become Hugh Hefner’s No. 1 girlfriend, have a hit show on E! and get to headline her own Vegas show. It is rumored that Madison has admitted she owes her success to plastic surgery and we would have to agree with her.

4. Marilyn Monroe

Before she molded herself into the most iconic sex symbol in history, Marilyn Monroe was brunette Norma Jeane Baker. She dyed her hair blonde, had a few minor fixes and the rest is Hollywood history.  Kind of makes me long for the days when changing your look didn't mean looking like a freak of nature.

3. Katy Perry

A blonde Katy Perry grew up in a strict religious household and was set on becoming a Christian singer. Then, she discovered the sinful pleasures of rock ‘n roll music, vintage clothes, and kissing girls and liking it, and the world hasn’t been the same since.

One day a young RuPaul Andre Charles decided to put on a wig, 8 pounds of make-up and a pair of sequined hot pants and VOILA! RuPaul drag superstar was born. We love his reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race and all the positive work he has done for equal rights.

1. Lady Gaga

Who would have ever guessed that plain Jane, Stefani Germanotta would one day rename herself Lady Gaga and hatch out of a giant egg in front of millions of people?  I'm pretty sure no one would've guessed because that would be bonkers. Like Lady Gaga bonkers.
