An accomplished dancer, the songstress also worked as a choreographer for the hit film American Graffiti.

Moreover, her talent was recognized through her nomination in the Primetime Emmy and MTV Video Music Awards in the category of choreography. The former was in 1988 and later in 1984.

The dancer isn’t leaving the spotlight any sooner. In July 2019, when she attended the premiere of Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, many wondered about her involvement in the film.

A few days later, she disclosed that she had done choreography for the movie and even shared the experience as something closer to an acid trip.

On 26th October 2017, the Mickey hitmaker slipped a piece of vital information when asked if she and dancer Pop N Taco worked together. In reply, she revealed that she had dated the celebrity dancer in her prime years.

Likewise, her list of ex-boyfriends includes celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring and actor Dean Stockwell, whom she dated in the 60s.

Net Worth & Royalty Fees

In 2012, the artist fought legal battles demanding the profits made from the song to be shared to her. But as of now, it's unknown, if she got financially credited for the hit song.

However, thanks to her diverse talent working as an actress, filmmaker, and dancer, she has accumulated a net worth of $5 million.
