When famous people go Goth

Whether it is a matter of personal evolution, artistic expression or maybe just doing it for some level of notoriety, from time to time we hear about celebrities and famous people who have "gone Goth."

No matter what the reason may be, at the very least, it makes for an interesting concept.

Here are a few notable examples.
