  1. ‘Queen of Disco’ Donna Summer ‘thought she became ill after inhaling 9/11 particles’

    Donna Summer, the 1970s pop singer known as the Queen of Disco, has died of lung cancer, an illness she believes she contracted from inhaling toxic particles released after the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York.

    In a 2008 interview with The Daily Telegraph, she said she had a premonition about the attacks a month beforehand. Afterwards she said she suffered from severe depression and could not leave her Manhattan flat.

    “I didn’t want to talk to anybody. I had to keep the blinds down and stay in my bedroom,” she said.
