Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Opens Home for Abused Women in Memphis

Steven Tyler has announced he is opening Janie’s House, which is a home for abused and neglected girls

Not only did he create this safe haven but he also donated $500,000 to renovate the 82-acre home which is located on the Youth Villages Bartlett Campus, just outside of Memphis. The rock star attended a “scarf-cutting” dedication to officially open the home. That's where he explained his motive behind creating... "Janie’s House", which is named after Aerosmith’s 1989 hit song “Janie’s Got a Gun”.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the song, it tells the story of a girl who was abused by her father, and later takes revenge on him after years of suffering.
