Mary J. Blige / Brook Lynn
Mary J. Blige formed the rapping alter ego Brook Lynn when she guested on a Busta Rhymes track, and later gave her naughty creation her own track on 2005’s “The Breakthrough.” “I had to separate the two because Mary is nice, you know, intelligent," she explained to MTV News. "Brook is crazy and ignorant and she don't [sic] care." —Jeff Royer
