Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler opens "Janie's House"

Steven Tyler is an absolute angel. On Monday he let the world in on a non-musical project he had been working on for a long time. A home for girls who've been neglected or abused called "Janie's House" just outside of Memphis. He attended a "scarf-cutting" dedication for the house which he helped renovate, CBS Memphis station WREG reports.

According to

Janie's House is located at Youth Villages in Bartlett, Tennessee. Youth Villages is an organization that provides support for families with emotional, mental and behavioral problems.

The house is named after Aerosmith's 1989 hit song "Janie's Got a Gun," which is about a girl who sought revenge on her abusive father, Tyler said in a video for Youth Villages. Tyler contributed about $500,000 to the charity, which helped open the second Janie's Home location, CBS Memphis reports.

"This does my heart and my soul good. This is real," Tyler said at the ceremony on Monday.
