“Tell me what the hell do you know, what do you know? Tell me how the hell could you know? How could you know? Till it happens to you know how it feels.”
-Lady Gaga | Till It Happens To You |
The 2016 Oscars had a lot of unforgettable moments.
Lady Gaga took the Oscars stage and gave a mind-blowing performance of her Oscar nominated song “Till It Happens To You.” The song was used in the documentary “The Hunting Ground,” that focuses deeply on the subject of rape on college campuses. Gaga then brought out survivors of rape and it wasn’t just the survivors on stage Gaga was thinking about…
She sent out a tweet to Kesha Sebert who has been fighting against Dr. Luke in a lawsuit after saying he emotionally, mentally and sexually abused her and without a doubt Kesha was touched by the performance, uploading a picture on Instagram with the caption:
“Thank u @ladygaga and @vp for bringing attention to sexual assault at the oscars. It hit very close to my heart for obvious reasons. #ItsOnUs”
Lady Gaga also uploaded a picture of her kissing Kelly Silverside, captioning the photo:
“ladygagaI never thought anyone would ever love me because I felt like my body was ruined by my abuser. But he loves the survivor in me. He’s stood by me all night proud and unashamedly. THATS a real man. <3“
And she also shared another group photo with other survivors of rape, leaving a touching caption:
“ladygagaThank you for standing next to me on stage. Thank you for all the things you said, for listening to my story and sharing yours. I will never forget it. 50 survivors, so brave, relentless determination.”
Lady Gaga has been supporting those who have been victims in many different forms and spreading the word is just one way to get started, remember that it could be someone you know and it’s important to take both genders seriously in this case because it doesn’t just happen to women but to men as well.
