When news broke recently that Linda Perry, star of VH1′s upcoming show Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project, married her longtime love, actress Sara Gilbert, we were thrilled to hear the news. But when Linda told us about their incredible wedding filled with live performances from the best front women of the best bands of the 1980s, our excitement turned to jealousy that we weren’t invited to the best. wedding. ever.
Linda revealed that the playlist she and Sara agreed on for their nuptials included songs from ’80s staples like The Motels and Berlin. When Linda found the perfect wedding cover band, she decided to call in a few favors and have friends like Annabella Lwin (Bow Wow Wow), Martha Davis (The Motels), Dale Bozzio (Missing Persons) and Terri Nunn (Berlin) join it for the night and sing the songs that made them famous. Linda also performed the John Lennon song “Love” and admits it was hard keeping her emotions in check but the song brought Sara and wedding guest Steven Tyler to tears. For more details about the big day and the passion for music that they two women share, watch our exclusive interview with Linda.
Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project premieres this July.
