Lady Gaga on Oscars nomination: 'It is extremely healing'
Music icon Lady Gaga has opened up about being nominated for the Best Original Song prize at this year's Oscars and described it as a dream come true.
She earned the impressive nomination alongside songwriter Diane Warren for their song 'Til It Happens To You' and the ceremony is set to take place on February 28 at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.
Speaking to People magazine, the superstar admitted that she feels incredibly honoured to have been recognised by the academy:
"It’s (nomination) truly an honour, and it is extremely healing actually, for it to be for a song that for both of us, is part of who we are... and I feel kind of vindicated for my own experience in a way because the song is us continuing to fight through our demons about it."
Gaga added: "The nomination is fantastic and just a massive honour but it’s mostly an honour because I feel the Academy is really caring about us and a very important issue. An issue that is in need of being talked about now, so that we can protect our future."
