‘Till it Happens to You’: a powerful Lady Gaga’s Music Video about the Dark Realities of Campus Rapes

Till it Happens to You lady gaga

Creativity is the best way to showcase some dark realities of world to aware people, and in same way Lady Gaga’s latest music video is one of the most powerful attempts against shocking and brutal reality of women who are being raped in college campuses. The song “Till it Happens to You” is produced and performed by Lady Gaga for a 2015 documentary film “The Hunting Ground” which deals with the issues of campus rapes.

The video song stars with a message, “The following contains graphic content that may be emotionally unsettling but reflects the reality of what is happening daily on college campuses.” The complete video is effectively shot in black and white and it portrays four young female students who are all raped in different campuses. It quite efficaciously depicts unnerving montage of sexual assault stories.

Video depicts different violent sexual attacks on women as in one story it shows a woman who is violently attacked by her friend in her dorm room while in another story a queer woman who is wearing a binder is raped in the shared restroom of men. After depicting destructive impacts of these assaults; video ends on a hopeful note as all these women eventually get help from their support groups who stand with them in solidarity.

All of them are shown tall and absolutely proud survivors rather than cowering victims and then lines “Till it happens to you, you won’t know how it feels” create its real impact on soul of everyone who watch the video. It’s really a commendable attempt of team of The Hunting Ground and for sure kudos to Lady Gaga for attempting such an impactful song.
