Lady Gaga praises 'real man' Taylor Kinney

Lady Gaga has paid tribute to her "real man" fiance Taylor Kinney.

The 29-year-old singer - who has previously spoken of how she was raped as a teenager - admits she "never thought" anyone would love her, so she is truly thankful for the actor's support.

Posting a picture of herself and Taylor at last night's (29.02.16) Oscars - where she performed her Academy Award-nominated song 'Til It Happens to You', from the rape documentary 'The Hunting Ground - she wrote: "I never thought anyone would ever love me because I felt like my body was ruined by my abuser. But he loves the survivor in me. He's stood by me all night proud and unashamedly. THATS a real man."

During her performance, Gaga was joined on stage at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre by a group of sexual assault victims with slogans such as 'Survivor', 'You Are Love' and 'Not Your Fault' written on their forearms and the 'Born This Way' hitmaker also paid tribute to the men and women for their "relentless determination".

Alongside a picture of herself with the group, she wrote: "Thank you for standing next to me on stage. Thank you for all the things you said, for listening to my story and sharing yours. I will never forget it. 50 survivors, so brave, relentless determination."
