While 4 Non Blondes reimagined the '70s through a kaleidoscope of Zeppelin-esque guitars, Linda Perry turns away from the Blondes' chart-topping hard-rock brew for her solo debut. Supported by the Tuesday Night Music Club (in a striking departure from its snappy pop-blues on Sheryl Crow's debut), Perry turns introspective and opts for trippy folk.

Singer, songwriter and producer Linda Perry has been chosen as the "visionary" for the Art of Elysium's seventh annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles in January. The Art of Elysium is a charitable organization that brings creativity into the lives of hospitalized children through its network of volunteer musicians, artists, fashion designers, writers, filmmakers and actors. “We create a world around them that's very, very different from the world they're in and we empower the children to see things far beyond their hospital rooms,” says founder Jennifer Howell.

If Linda Perry were a publicly traded corporation, she would have been forced by now to fire herself as CEO. In market terms, the San Francisco-based singer's stock has turned to junk since she divested herself of her hit band, 4 Non Blondes. The lone 4 Non Blondes album, released four years ago, has sold an estimated 1.6 million copies in the United States. "In Flight," Perry's solo debut this year, has just sold a wing-clipping 11,000.

Linda Perry looks every bit the rock star she always wanted to be, wearing leather pants and denim shirt and striking a haughty pose as she lays a guitar arpeggio into a majestic rock arrangement. But Perry isn't playing to a packed arena. Leaning against the soundboard in a Burbank recording studio, she has an audience of half a dozen or so, including the members of Lillix, a Canadian band whose song "Tomorrow" Perry co-wrote and produced last year.

You came out of nowhere to sell 5 million copies of your first band's debut album and become a colorful presence on the rock scene. You then work for more than two months on the crucial follow-up record. Does it make any sense to suddenly scrap it all, break up the band and go off to make your own record? It does if you're Linda Perry, whose wailing voice powered the San Francisco band 4 Non Blondes into prominence in 1993.

Linda PERRY has another hit on her hands. This time, though, it's not as a writer or producer, the roles she's played on Pink's "Get the Party Started," Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" and Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For?" among many others in recent years. Nor is it as a performer, as she was when she led the popular 4 Non Blondes in the '90s. Now it's as a label mogul.

Sara Gilbert of "The Talk" is engaged to Linda Perry, her girlfriend of more than a year, the co-host announced Monday on the show. The proposal, which was elaborate, is best captured by the notoriously shy Gilbert herself, who shares the event in the video down below -- definitely worth watching to hear all the intricacies. Be warned: It involves a love song, a breakup song, a picnic, a guitarist, a daydream, a string section and horns, T-shirts, moms, friends and musician John Waite.

With her tattoos and exotic jewelry, her raspy, raucous laugh and her admitted taste for the bottle, her salty language and San Francisco address, Linda Perry carries on some of the spirit of Janis Joplin. It's no accident. Perry, 31, adores the late singer and what she represented. "I believe in the rock-star mentality," says Perry, whose first solo album, "In Flight," comes out Tuesday. "Remember a long time ago when rock stars meant something? Like Janis Joplin was a rock star.
