"BEHIND THE MUSIC: LINDA PERRY" PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, JULY 16th AT 9:00PM*

In this latest episode of VH1's iconic bio series, Linda Perry candidly reveals, for the first time publically, the mental and physical abuse she suffered as a child. She turned her angst into emotionally charged songs and soared to rock stardom as the lead singer of 4 Non Blondes. But at her peak, Linda quit the band and fell into a heroin habit. However, she went on to reinvent herself as a producer and songwriter for the stars, penning hits for Pink, Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani, and her greatest triumph, "Beautiful" for Christina Aguilera. She also started her own label, and was the first to sign and break British singer-songwriter James Blunt in the United States. Along with her professional success, Linda also found solace in her personal life, falling in love and marrying her partner and soulmate, actress Sara Gilbert. This episode features interviews with Sara, Pink, Christina Aguilera and Courtney Love.

"Behind the Music: Linda Perry" is executive produced for VH1 by Susan Levison, Brad Abramson and Stephen Mintz, with Mary Wharton producing. Executives in charge of music talent for VH1 are Rick Krim and Leah Horwitz.
