Serena Williams has produced a new video to promote breast cancer awareness in which she covers her bare chest with her hands and sings a cover of The Divinyls’ hit I Touch Myself.
The video is shared on her Instagram page, where she wrote: “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 colours, 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 honour 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.”
Amphlett died in 2013 at the age of 53. It is not Williams’ first music video – she appeared in the video for Sorry from Beyonce’s album Lemonade.
