Lady Gaga Shares Her Grandmother’s Pride Over Oscars Performance

Gaga gave an emotional performance at this year's Oscars as she sang alongside survivors of sexual abuse.

T he singer explained that both her grandmother and aunt were extremely moved by her performance and also did not realise until that night that Gaga herself was a survivor of sexual abuse. She commented that she kept it a secret from many of her family members because she was too afraid:

“My grandmother and my Aunt Sheri both called me the day after the Oscars because I never told them I was a survivor,” Gaga wrote alongside the picture. “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.”

Gaga added that her grandmother was particularly proud of her and when they spoke they shared a very emotional moment together. Gaga encourages women to speak up and share their own stories:

“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. Something I have kept a secret for so long that I was more ashamed of than anything– became the thing the women in my life were the most proud of. And not just any women, the ones I look up to the most.#BeBrave #speakup #tilithappenstoyou.”
