- In December 2014, Lady Gaga revealed to radio host Howard Stern that she had been raped by a record producer twenty years her senior when she was 19 years old. The pop star's single, Swine, is about the incident.
She said, “The song is about rape. The song is about demoralization. The song is about rage and fury and passion and I had a lot of pain that I wanted to release and I said to myself, ‘I want to sing this song while I’m ripping hard on a drum kit and then I want to get on a mechanical bull, which is probably one of the most demoralizing things that you can put a female on in her underwear, and I want this chick to throw up on me in front of the world so that I can tell them ‘You know what, you can never ever degrade me as much as I could degrade myself and look how beautiful it is when I do.’”

- In November 2014, troubled actor Shia LaBeouf publicly claimed that he had been raped by a woman during his #IAMSORRY performance art project in February. As part of the project, LaBeouf sat in a room with a bag over his head while visitors interacted with him. Some held his hand, some said disparaging things, and apparently, one person sexually assaulted him.
LaBeouf told Dazed Digital's Aimee Cliff, "one woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me…"
Reaction to the revelation were mixed. Some, like journalist Piers Morgan, refused to believe the actor, while others rushed to support his story. LaBeouf, who struggled with alcohol addition and a "nervous breakdown" earlier in the year, did not press charges.
