Christina "Chrissy" Amphlett--frontwoman for the Australian rock band the Divinyls, whose "I Touch Myself" went to number four on theBillboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1991--died Sunday at her home in New York. Amphlett was 53 years old.

Amphlett's husband of 14 years, former Divinyls drummer and multi-instrumentalist/producer Charley Drayton, confirmed in a statement that the charismatic singer died after battling multiple sclerosis since 2007 and breast cancer since 2010. "Chrissy's light burns so very brightly," Drayton stated. "Hers was a life of passion and creativity; she always lived it to the fullest…With her force of character and vocal strength she paved the way for strong, sexy, outspoken women."

Drayton also revealed that Amphlett had "expressed hope that her worldwide hit 'I Touch Myself' would remind women to perform annual breast examinations."

RIP Christina!

It may help if you change the title or put it is a song in the post title so people dont think it is something else.  I did not realize it was for breast exams.
