The Poker Face singer had an emotional moment while performing
her Oscar nominated song Til It Happens To You at the
Producers Guild Awards. Lady Gaga spoke about her aunt who was a
victim of sexual abuse.
Talking about the brutal incident that took away her aunt's
life, Gaga told what significance the song holds to her and her
family. At the event that took place on January 24, 2016, in Los
Angeles, the singer said,
'It's not only an important issue to me, but it's an important
issue to my family,'
'When my father's sister was in college, she was sexually
assaulted. Then, it tormented her so emotionally that it caused the
lupus that she had to get so bad that she died.'
She co-wrote the song with Daine Warren for the campus rape
documentary The Hunting Ground. The song is very close to
her heart because of what her aunt Joanne went through.
The six times Grammy winner took to the Piano for an emotional
rendition of the song Til It Happens To You, after
thanking Warren whom she loves very much.
