Back in 1978, Donna Summer admitted that she wasn't sure if she was viewed as a serious artist beyond her massive chart success: "I really couldn't tell you. I hope I stand in the light of legitimacy, in a place where people will respect what I do, and understand that any songs that I do I choose to -- and not because that is my limitation. And I think before, that was a problem. They thought that was my limitation."
