Regardless of your personal opinion about Lady Gaga (past or present, good or bad) you can't ignore that she is a talented artist and singer. But more importantly we, as a society, have been ignoring how we handle sexual abuse for far too long.
It is one of the few, if not only, times we question and persecute the victim of a crime. It is something that needs to be addressed because far too often victims feel forced into silence. I applaud Lady Gaga for shedding light on this issue on such a large platform, and at the very least it has people talking. This forum is an example of that.
It shouldn't matter if her performance was great or mediocre in your opinion, What should matter is that you heard the message in the lyrics she sang, and that our society recognizes the importance of the change we need and acts upon that.
