Breast Cancer Awareness month is right around the corner and it seems like one celeb is taking out some breast awareness of another sort.

Holly Madison

Peepshow star and former Playboy bunny Holly Madison recently announced her expensive gift to herself: a $1 million insurance policy for her breasts. The blonde bombshell is well known for her assets and shows them off frequently when she appears topless in her Las Vegas Peepshow performances.

Madison tells People she chose to buy the Lloyd's of London insurance policy to protect her most famous assets. "I've heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I'd be out for a few months and I'd probably be out a million dollars," she tells the magazine. "I thought I'd cover my assets."

Madison isn't the first fashionable celebrity to invest in her physical assets. Lloyd's of London has also been the insurer of choice for celebs like Mariah Carey and Mary Hart (both insured their legs), America Ferrera (she got her smile insured for $10 million) and Celine Dion (the singer insured her vocal cords).

In the end, Madison is taking the whole insurance process with a grain of salt. "I think it's kind of funny. I think they're getting the credit they deserve," she told People. "They're my primary money makers right now."
