Lady Gaga's Oscar performance of "Til It Happens to You" was dedicated to sexual assault survivors, and its message is getting some attention.
The Oscar-nominated song was recorded for the documentary "The Hunting Ground," which chronicles the nationwide campus rape issue. But what some of her family members apparently didn't know was that the meaning behind the song also hit close to home for Gaga.
The performer came out about her own rape story in 2014: "I was so traumatized by it that I was like just keep going. I just had to get out of there."
