    You bet I'm attributing this to TMZ. Could be wrong . . .

    Something didn't treat her right.

    For someone who made her mark making sex noises to a disco beat, she was pretty devout. She definitely had the pipes, but her material never served her well

    Tampa Bay Times Media Critic is also announcing Summer has died.

    RIP.

    Now I am having trouble getting "Last Dance" out of my head. I will be hearing it all day.

    Songbird. Enjoyed almost everything she did from her disco Casablanca days through the first Geffen album then sort of lost track. But she's part of the soundtrack of my youth ....

    I love this song, which Brian Eno went happy apeshit over when he was recording with David Bowie in Germany:

    Hoping against hope that not every newspaper in America tomorrow leads with the headline, "Last Dance."

    RIP, Ms. Summer.

    Saw Donna Summer eating lunch at a chain restaurant in Nashville over Christmas last year. Even given the modest location, she was diva-ed out. Looked great.

    The world will probably be surprised to find out she lived in Music City.
