Lady Gaga recorded “Til It Happens to You” for the film The Hunting Ground, a documentary about campus rape. Sadly, it’s a subject the singer is personally familiar with.
Gaga, who’s nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her performance in American Horror Story: Hotel, opened up about being raped at 19 in a Thursday TimesTalks session. She elucidated on the trauma of that experience.
“I didn’t know how to accept it. I didn’t know how to not blame myself or think it was my fault. It’s something that really changed my life. It changed who I was completely. It changed my body, it changed my thoughts.”
She also talked about her relationship with the Diane Warren-penned song, “Til It Happens to You.”
“Diane [Warren, her co-writer] ] will tell you, it was really hard for me when (the song) came out. I was really stressed out about it.” Gaga said. “Every time I listen to it, I cry. Every time I get a text about it, I always feel sick. It’s like this thing you don’t want to face. But because she wanted to face it with me, it reminded me of what the song is for.”
