“I want to dedicate this song to every man, woman, child and animal that has ever been abused,” the singer said before performing the song.
Warren, who co-wrote the song with Lady Gaga for the documentary “The Hungint Ground,” accompanied Kesha on piano.
“I get letters and Gaga just told me, too, [that] there’s not a day that goes by that people aren’t stopping her and thanking her for the song,” Warren said.
“Killed it @KeshaRose. I could feel your pain. Girl these boys won’t be in charge forever. The wisdom of women is rising. Let’s get louder,” Lady Gaga tweeted.
