    Default Divinyls lead singer Chrissy Amphlett dead at 53

    Chrissy Amphlett Dead -- 'I Touch Myself' Singer Dies at 53 | TMZ.com

    Chrissy Amphlett -- whose hit song "I Touch Myself" while lead singer of the Divinyls dominated the 1990s -- passed away on Sunday. She was 53.

    Her husband has released a statement explaining, "Amphlett succumbed to the effects of breast cancer and multiple sclerosis."

    Amphlett revealed she had multiple sclerosis in 2007 and was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010.

    The Divinyls released six albums between 1982 and 1996, but peaked in 1991 with the song "I Touch Myself." It was featured in the movie "Prelude to a Kiss" and later used in "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery."

    I always loved their song "Pleasure and Pain" too. She was a real freak on stage. Rest in peace.

    Touch myself was THE song when I was young.. That woman taught me sexy ..

    also

    I was just arguing with someone over this internet on this (i know, i know).. They said her song touch myself was about her breast cancer which it is not.. she was diagnosed in 2010 and the song came out in 1991. I hate arguing over the internet makes me feel like a complete dumbass even when i'm right.

    This is my blog entry, this eve...


    Remembering Chrissy Amphlett R.I.P.



    I’ve been sitting here weeping for the last hour, watching Chrissy Amphlett be fucking amazing. I remember the first time I saw the Divinyls perform on Countdown in 1983. I was 12 and I just instantly fell in love with her. I loved her voice and I loved her ‘sitting-on-the-fence of sanity’ performances…

    She was scary to some men, and could mesmerise them with just a look … I loved that, too. I love that she wasn’t the cookie cutter variety beauty. I love that she influenced my own singing chops, and pondering all this, my thoughts have sent me back to a time long ago, and I’m now just noticing that she played a big part in my teenage years, too.
    I’m utterly devastated that she’s gone.

    So beautiful. Fly free, Chrissy.

    I heard about this on the radio this morning; poor woman. I'm going to have to check those songs on YouTube because I don't remember them for some reason. May she RIP.

    poor woman, so young, and so ill.
