Lady Gaga covers 4 Non Blondes’ ‘What’s Up?’ to honour Linda Perry

Lady Gaga performed a cover of 4 Non Blondes' most iconic song at the 46th Songwriters Hall of Fame dinner this weekend. Gaga was there to sing 'What's Up?' to honour Linda Perry's career as one of the most prolific songwriters.

Gaga said: "The song I just performed changed my life a million times over – over and over again. Not just once in my life but many times ago when I revisit it. Isn’t that what a fucking hit song is supposed to do?

"She has distinctive vocals and her songs first attracted attention in the San Francisco area in the early 1990s when I was wishing I was going on Spring Break."

Gaga also revealed that her dad was the one to introduce her to Linda Perry's band back in the 1990s.

"This was the first album that my father ever gave to me. He said to me, 'The kids at work, in the office, said that this is what all the young people are listening to.' I fell in love and I thought my dad was cool."
