Linda Perry Apologizes for Slamming Lady Gaga's Oscar Nom

Linda Perry has taken to her Twitter account to apologize for the previous comments she made about Lady Gaga‘s Oscar nomination.

The songwriter alleged in a series of tweets that Gaga did not actually write the song “Till It Happens to You” and that Diane Warren should have received the sole nomination. She claimed that Gaga was credited as a songwriter just to help it get the nomination and buzz.

“My sincere apologies. I made a mistake to comment. I wasn’t in the room when the #TIHTY was being written,” Linda tweeted. “More importantly, I wish the focus to remain on the great importance of the song and the message of the film.”

Linda was also in contention for a nomination this year for her song “Hands of Love” from the movie Freeheld.
