Janet Jackson / Damita Jo
In 2004, Janet Jackson unveiled an alter ego named Damita Jo, which is also her middle name, to explore her sexuality in a more explicit way. She released an album of the same name featuring such songs as “Moist” and “Sexhibition.” "My sexuality has been an ongoing discovery and theme. With 'Damita Jo,' I push the envelope a little further,” she told Upscale. “As an artist, that's not only my passion, it's my obligation." —Jeff Royer
