Pink, Heart, Linda Perry, Sarah Silverman, Renee Zellweger and Gina Gershon rock An Evening With Women

By Greg Hernandez

EVENING OUT: Anyone who was at last night’s An Evening With Women: Celebrating Art, Music and Equality event at the Beverly Hilton will not soon forget it.

The crowd at the star-studded evening benefiting the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center was treated to a surprise appearance by Pink who joined mentor (and event chairwoman) Linda Perry onstage for a rousing version of What’s Up which left the crowd on its feet.

The singer had earlier appeared onstage during the live auction sitting atop a Vespa that sold for $12,000. Pink (at the event with husband Cary Hart) did not come with the Vespa but the winning bidder did get to sit on the bike and be photographed with the singer who had a lit cigarette in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.

Pink was good-naturedly foul mouthed telling the crowd “Yes, I got a new fucking haircut!” before adding: “This is an incredible evening. I’m just honored to have made it this far west to know you all.”

HEARTFELT PERFORMANCE: It was absolute heaven to be treated to a four-song set from Heart. Ann and Nancy Wilson were in great form treating the crowd to their classic hit Barracuda and a few songs from their new album Red Velvet Car.

Among the new material was a moving song called Sand about a friend of the Wilson sisters who lost a long battle with AIDS.

Linda Perry said that when she asked Heart to perform, the answer “yes” came within a day: “I’m just so honored that they’re here.”

Ann Wilson told me before the show how impressed she is with the LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s work and that she wished there was a similar depth of services in Seattle where she lives.

Sarah Silvermann brought the house down with her hilarious routine. Love this girl and her potty mouth. She was introduced by Gina Gershon and told the crowd that Gershon’s fill name is “Va-Gina.”
