Sexy R+B star Cassie had her nipples pierced to help her keep breast cancer at bay.
The pretty 22 year old's mother is a two-time breast cancer survivor and the singer was recently tested to make sure she was free of the disease.
After the check-up, Cassie had her nipples pierced in a bid to show cancer she was a fighter.
She says, "I got my piercings before I got my results, like positive energy... I think it's sexy. I'm proud of them."
But she admits the decision to get pierced would have backfired on her if medics found the cancer gene.
Cassie adds, "I'm sitting there with my parents, my mom's sobbing after she finds out that I don't have the gene, and I'm like, `Guess what, mom and dad, I got my nipples pierced.'
"It was nerve-racking because I was like, `My mom's going to kill me if I have this gene and I got these things.'"
