Trivia / Donna Summer

  • Career Resurrection: Her single "Bad Girls" brought her back in the limelight in mid-2004, thanks to Arrested Development and Portia DeRossi's pole dancing. There was also a brief one in the late 90's, thanks to The Full Monty and its use of "Hot Stuff."
  • Executive Meddling: After the major success of "Love to Love You Baby", Summer's label, Casablanca Records, wanted her to act as a sex symbol. Initially, despite unease, Summer went with the public image and followed the label's every instruction on what to wear, how to act and even what doctors and lawyers to use. This eventually led to Creator Breakdown, and after recovery, Summer changed labels to Geffen Records and became a born-again Christian.
