Are you seeing so many images of Lady Gaga as The Countess from American Horror Story: Hotel that you’re starting to miss her work as a pop star? Well, she’s got you covered with what is reported as possibly the most important music video to be released this year! Gaga is currently trending with the debut of a brand new socially conscious music video for “Till It Happens To You,” which spotlights the realities of sexual assault on college campuses. In the video she appears with the crew behind the documentary, The Hunting Ground, which tackles the same subject. The goal of the project is to empower victims, and drum up more support for the cause.
As the video points out, this support is badly needed. The statistics about this problem are staggering. According to ryot.org, incidents occur at 1 out of 5 of American colleges or Universities, and only 6 percent of assaults are reported. Gaga’s team says that a portion of all proceeds for this single will go to to organizations that support sexual assault survivors.
