Mariah Carey is baffled by claims she reinvented herself for her new album, insisting she just experimented with new clothes and hairstyles.
The Emancipation of Mimi disc was billed as a new look and new sounding Mariah - but she doesn't think she's ever changed.
Carey says: "I do not think I reinvent myself. Wearing my hair differently or changing my style of dress is playing dress-up. I don't take it too seriously."
