Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Opens "Janie's House" Safe Home for Abused Women

By Mustafa Gatollari

Steven Tyler is one of the most persistent and recognizable names in rock music. The man's hosted American Idol and also managed to sing both the best son ever featured in a movie abd the worst song ever in a movie: "Dude (Looks like a Lady)" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" from Mrs. Doubtfire and Armageddon, respectively.

But the man isn't just known for belting out rock classics and looking like a mop with multi-colored hair extensions: he's also got a charitable streak in him. The musician is associated with eight separate charities, including one he founded himself: Janie's Fund.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because it comes from Aerosmith's hit 1989 song, "Janie's Got a Gun." The track tells the tale of a young woman who finally takes revenge on her father after years of abuse.

Janie's Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of abused and neglected girls, not only by raising awareness, but also by providing funding so women can access services and support programs that will assist them in healing from their trauma. 

One such example is a new safe haven Tyler opened in Memphis, TN on a sprawling 82-acre compound called Janie's House.
