Lady Gaga describes lasting affects of her alleged rape ten years on


Lady Gaga has discussed the lasting effects of the sexual assault she allegedly suffered as a teenager after collaborating with another artist who allegedly endured a similar experience.

The singer worked with Diane Warren, an Oscar-nominated writer on the song “Til It Happens to You” for The Hunting Ground, a documentary about the prevalence of rape and harassment on university campuses in America.

In September, Gaga released a powerful music video to accompany the song highlighting the incidences of sexual abuse in an attempt to destigmatise assault and discourage victim-blaming.

Gaga said her own alleged assault at the age of 19, at the hands of a man 20 years her senior, left her questioning whether she was in some way to blame.
