Tennis legend, Serena Williams goes topless and sings a rendition of “I Touch Myself” in a video meant to raise awareness on the dangers of breast cancer.
With her hands cupping her breasts, Serena writes in an Instagram post that the video took her out of her comfort zone and she did it because breast cancer is an issue that affects all women around the world.
The video is part of the “I Touch Myself Project,” which is dedicated to Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett. The 53-year-old Australian died in 2013 after a long battle with breast cancer.
Williams said Amphlett “gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first”.

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key – it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself
