She won both the 1983 Best Original Song Academy Award and the 1984 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Flashdance (What A Feeling)". Things that suggest the rumor is untrue are that the media had reason to tarnish Leigh and Curtis' reputations at that time, since their careers were no longer hugely successful. She played Coco Hernandez in Fame and Angela in romance thriller classic Aaron Loves Angela. Facts that point to the likelihood of the rumor's truth is that Curtis underwent mysterious surgeries and "complications" shortly after her birth, as well as her unisex name. She sang the theme from Fame and "Flashdance (What A Feeling)". The supposition usually refers to androgen insensitivity syndrome. Both her parents were from Puerto Rico and in the early 1950's they migrated to the U.S.. There is much speculation, which has sometimes even been alleged in high school and college biology courses, that Curtis was born an intersexual; but it is unknown whether this is an urban legend or fact.
