    LESLEY GORE

    'IT'S MY PARTY' SINGER DEAD



    Lesley Gore -- who exploded on the music scene with "It's My Party" -- has died.

    Gore, who followed her 1963 hit with a string of huge songs, including "Judy's Turn to Cry," "You Don't Own Me," and "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows," also composed the sound for the movie, "Fame" in 1980. Gore was nominated for one of the songs, "Out Here on My Own."

    Gore was openly gay and leaves a partner, Lois Sasson.

    We're told she died in a NYC hospital following a battle with cancer.

    I'd never heard You Don't Own Me before. Seemed ahead of its time. RIP.

    Ugh, I love Lesley's songs. When my friend and I go on vacation, we take along her biggest hits and sing like crazy while we drive around in the mountains. Damn.

    RIP Lesley Gore.

    My thoughts are with Lois Sasson.

    Lesley's voice is so unique.

    I've met a bunch, but I did help Leslie Gore (the writer/singer) - It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To and You Don't Own Me) when I worked in a gourmet shop. I still remember thinking what a completely rude bitter bitch she was.

    But, You don't Own Me was and is my lifetime theme song.

    She was the first singer I lip-synced to. I loved her music. I was a teen during the height of her fame. Loved her.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    Never knew she was gay. Good for her. But sad news however.
