The Beat: An Evening With Women

"And I said, 'Hey, hey, hey, hey, what's going on?' " yelled the crowd back to 4 Non Blondes, led by Linda Perry, who reunited for the first time in over two decades to perform their hit "What's Up?" for a crowd of heavy-hitters at the raucous L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's 2014 "An Evening With Women" event at the Beverly Hilton. Guests dined on an all-vegan menu while enjoying a performance from comedian Margaret Cho, who had the audience roaring with laughter at her original song "Fat Pussy." Actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Milla Jovovich wowed the crowd with their vocal ability during their three-song sets, where Wood belted out Garbage's "Queer" and Radiohead's "High and Dry" and Jovovich sang Patti Smith's "Dancing Barefoot." In a silent auction, Sia won a trip to Bora Bora for $14,500; Perry auctioned off her personal piano, signed by LGBT supporters including Leonardo DiCaprio, Pink and Courtney Love, which sold for $15,000; and Rumer Willis sold a date with herself that went for $12,000, bringing the ­evening's auction total to $600,000.
