Chrissie Amphlett was the lead singer of The Divinyls. Born in Melbourne  as a teenager she ran away to Europe where she traveled to England, France and Spain and was arrested for three months for singing on the streets.

Apart from being a totally kickass performer and lyricist, she also acted in the 1982 film Monkey Grip

And don't forget she is responsible for my pre-teen obsession - "I touch myself" a song that represented how unapologetic she is about her sexuality, a mind-blowing concept for a 12 year old to fathom that still resonates with me today.
