Lady Gaga never ceases to amaze or reveal. At the Producers Guild of America Awards tonight in Hollywood she revealed why she got involved with the campus rape doc, “The Hunting Ground.” She told the crowd she wrote the song “Til it Happens to You” with Diane Warren because her aunt– her father’s older sister– was raped in college. It gets worse: the young woman suffered from Lupus, which was exacerbated by the rape. She died not long after that. Gaga said that what happened to her aunt affected her for years.
Gaga went on to perform “Til it Happens to You” to a huge ovation. The song is the “Glory” of this season.
