There’s a new Oscars controversy that isn’t getting much attention.

Turns out Lady Gaga maybe shouldn’t have been nominated for her song Til It Happens to You, from the college campus sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground.

The 4 Non Blondes singer tweeted on Monday that Gaga didn’t pen the tune and only performed the song credited to Diane Warren and Mother Monster. Perry said she has the demo by Warren and that only one line had changed.

Warren said the song is a “special collaboration” between herself and Gaga. Academy rules say only the principle songwriters can be nominated, the Associated Press reports.
