The undisputed queen of disco passed away today at 63, and the pop world was quick to mourn through — what else? — Twitter. Stars who Donna Summer clearly influenced, like Rihanna, Robyn and Nicki Minaj were fast to respond. One pattern we noticed? Other than Adam Lambert and Timbaland, almost all of Summer's first public social media mourners were women! Rest in peace, Donna Summer.
