Record producer apologises for saying Lady Gaga is falsely credited on Oscar-nominated song

2016-01-19 19:00

New York — Record producer Linda Perry has apologised for tweeting that Lady Gaga doesn't deserve songwriting credit for the Oscar-nominated song Til it Happens to You, from the college campus sexual-assault documentary The Hunting Ground.

Perry said in tweets on Monday that Lady Gaga only performed the song credited to Diane Warren and Lady Gaga. Perry said she has Warren's original demo and the final version changes only one line.

But Perry now says she "wasn't in the room" when the song was being written and was wrong to comment.

Warren had disputed the songwriting allegation and said Til it Happens to You is "a special collaboration" between her and Lady Gaga. A publicist for Lady Gaga hasn't commented.

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences regulations state only the principal songwriters of a song can be nominated.
