This is interesting as Lady Gaga released a song "Til it Happens To You." Now it seems there may be some real experience behind the song. – SJ Otto
Lady Gaga, who performed a moving rendition of her song "Til it Happens To You" at Sunday night's Oscars, has revealed that she had previously kept her status as a survivor of sexual assault a secret from her own family.
The song has been lauded as an anthem for survivors of sexual abuse and assault, though it's likely been a comfort to many other types of victims and survivors as well. Gaga made no effort to downplay this powerful element of the song on Sunday, with dozens of assault victims walking to the edge of the stage to join her toward the end of her performance.
In an Instagram post Wednesday, Gaga said that it was also a moment of truth for her entire family. The day after her performance, she received a phone call from both her grandmother and aunt "because [she] never told them [she] was a survivor."
