Wallpaper Description:
DONNA SUMMER: ALBUM COLLAGE


A 5-album collage: That's all we could fit in here, considering her innumerable albums. Some of her LP's (albums) were produced in other nations apart from the US, like Germany, Japan and many others.


It was certain that as a relatively new artist with less power, she had to obey the music industry's dictum that she bare lots of skin.

Her first album, The Lady of the Night (1974) featured her as she really was (all covered up!) (an iconic album design - she looked like the Virgin Mary or Little Red Riding Hood), because it was produced in Germany.

From her second album (1975) to her eighth (1979) and ninth (also in 1979) On the Radio and Bad Girls, she was still under the dictates of the powers that be in the music industry; and so unlike for her first album in Germany, she had to bare lots of skin, particularly in the Bad Girls album, where they got her to wear a black flimsy (bare-your-soul) nightie.


However in subsequent releases of the Bad Girls album and in concerts promoting the same, audiences saw her in more fashionable gear despite the title of the album.


In later years, as she gained more fame and knowledge of the industry, she wielded considerable influence and she conceived of the clothing she would wear (as well as the art itself) on the covers of her albums (some of which are in this collage) wherein her message to women, as a married woman with three daughters, was that of modesty and respect for one's husband.


Her philosophy in creating her album designs, knowing that her children would be influenced for posterity, was: You don't have to bare your cleavage and your shoulders just to prove you're a great singer.


Even after her death, her husband (for more than 30 years) Bruce Sudano sang her praises, commending her for her steadfast character and for being a great role model for their three children.


Her three daughters are: Mimi Sommer, stay-at-home wife, her child with former husband of about 2 years, Helmut Sommer; Brooklyn Sudano, singer, dancer and actress; Amanda Sudano, singer, songwriter and model.


Should any of her children choose later on not to follow her good example, being adults themselves, the blame for such choices would not fall on their deceased mother.







CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, an UPDATE! SEVERAL people and not just one pointed out to me that Donna Summer didn't always wear long-sleeved clothing.

And that, according to these people, she sometimes bucked her own tradition by wearing something very revealing in a LATER album.

REALLY?!

My answer to that is: I NEVER, EVER said she wore only long sleeved clothes and nothing else!

The point to bring home to roost, I think, is that in one of her later albums, Crayons, she still maintained the no-cleavage policy. And that was one of her LATER albums.

Also, I have not seen a later picture of hers that shows the upper part of her breasts. If you know one, show me the link.
