Lady Gaga Talks About Dealing With The Trauma Of Her Sexual Assault


Lady Gaga stunned the world with her empowering performance at the 88th Academy Awards in February.

While singing "Til It Happens To You," she stood among sexual assault survivors who had messages of hope written on their arms in black ink.

The song was written for "The Hunting Ground," a documentary focused around the sexual assaults happening on college campuses.

Gaga, who talked about her own sexual assault before, opened up about her experience and the performance in an interview on "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show."

The singer shared she felt chronic pain ever since her sexual assault 10 years ago.

She said,

She also discussed the emotional impact her Oscar performance had on her.

She shared,

Gaga recently got a beautiful tattoo to show support for sexual assault victims. Some survivors who stood on stage with her also got the same tattoo in solidarity.

Thank you, Lady Gaga, for touching us with your music, standing up for survivors and sharing this powerful message with our world.
