She in an interview said:
“When I saw Lady Gaga singing it with all of these rape victims and survivors standing around her, I got choked up. I didn’t know how to comfort and ease the fear my daughter saw in me. Keegan said, ‘Mom, how old would the man be now who raped you?’ I wondered about that, so I Googled his name. And there it was: James E. Starling, up for parole in April 2016.”
She exclaimed if she hadn't watch Lady Gaga perform the song and her daughter hadn't asked her the question then she wouldn't have realized the fact and more women would have been victims of the rapist.
All for good! She did the right thing. But truly Maureen is blessed to have such an understanding daughter in her life. Whether Maureen in the future finds her life partner or not but she has already found the love of her life; Keegan!
