Donna Summer's Advice to Rihanna, Beyonce and Britney
In one of “Extra’s” last interviews with Donna Summer in 2008, the veteran disco queen talked with correspondent Terri Seymour about young singers Rihanna, Beyonce and Britney Spears, offering them some advice.
To Rihanna: “Just go for it, girl! I think you're a sweetheart. Just keep up the good work!”
To Beyonce: “I love Beyonce too! What's not to love? I want you to continue to be the inspiration you are.”
To Britney (who, at the time, was having her mental breakdown): “That's another story completely. Britney needs to be around people who really love her, and who really tell her the truth. Don't hold it against me, Britney. I love you, and I'm talking like a mommy!”
Donna also talked about her album, "Crayons," and her '08 world tour. “I believe God gave me the talent. I give him the credit. If I'm able to be singing in my 90s, I'll probably be singing in my 90s. That's a blessing.”
