Lady Gaga has revealed a matching tattoo she got with other survivors of sexual assault who joined her onstage at the Academy Awards for her performance of ‘Til It Happens To You’.
The 29-year-old singer – who was raped at 19-years-old – was joined onstage at the Academy Awards by other victims and it has now been revealed some of the group permanently inked their body to mark the occasion and celebrate their strength.
Meanwhile, the ‘Pokerface’ hitmaker previously revealed some of her family only found out that she had been raped after her performance at the Oscars.
She said: ‘My grandmother and my Aunt Sheri both called me the day after the Oscars because I never told them I was a survivor.
‘I was too ashamed. Too afraid. And it took me a long time to even admit it to myself because I’m Catholic and I knew it was evil but I thought it was my fault.
‘I thought it was my fault for ten years. The morning after the Oscars when I talked to my grandmother Ronnie, with tears in her eyes.
‘I could hear them welling through the phone she said to me ‘My darling granddaughter, I’ve never been more proud of you than I am today.’
