Linda Perry, former vocalist and guitarist of 4 Non Blondes, claims David Letterman producers asked her to replace a guitar with a “dyke” sticker

Appearing on Larry King Now, host Larry King asked Perry if she had always been out about her sexuality.

“Yes, I've always been out,” Perry answered.

Perry explained that during rehearsal for an appearance on David Letterman with 4 Non Blondes, producers asked her whether she would be willing to trade in her guitar.

Perry explained that she said 'no' because she was not trying to make a statement. She went on the show thinking she and her guitar would not appear on television screens.

“Well, sure enough, the show starts right on my guitar. It goes right on. I mean close up on the guitar, right over 'choice,' right over 'dyke,' right up to my face and there's the show.”

“They were used to pushing for what they want and when I said 'no,' it wasn't a big deal,” she added. “And that basically sums up life.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
