As "MIB" franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld recently told CNN, he, along with stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, was shooting one night, and while they waited on a set repair Smith revealed that he had an idea for the threequel.

This won't be our 'Last Dance' to Donna Summer: A playlist

Five-time Grammy Award winner Donna Summer, who first hustled into our hearts in the 1970s, died Thursday morning. She was 63.

Having released 17 studio albums between 1974 and 2008, it seems fitting that we honor the Queen of Disco’s legacy by lacing up our dancing shoes. Starting at the beginning…

“Love to Love You,” originally released in 1975, is the provocative tune that first put Summer on the map. Her moaning and groaning throughout the track prompted Time magazine to tally up the number of orgasms that were simulated during the making of the song. (There are 22, for the record.)

Remembering the 'Queen of Disco,' Donna Summer

Donna Summer may be gone, but the music she created is timeless, having not only defined an era but also serving as an influence for musicians who followed.

Hailed as the Queen of Disco, Summer's phenomenal success provided us with a seemingly endless supply of anthems: "She Works Hard for the Money"; "Hot Stuff"; "Love to Love You Baby"; and "Last Dance" all could easily find themselves in rotation today. Without a doubt, that enduring latter single will be heard around the world today in honor of her memory.

Donna Summer's legacy is lasting

Her family told CNN in a statement that they lost the icon early Thursday morning. Summer was "[a] woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith. While we grieve her passing, we are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy. Words truly can't express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time."
