Lady Gaga has joked about the meat dress she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Los Angeles earlier this month.

The singer came under fire over the design after she wore it to collect the award for Video Of The Year.

Lady Gaga defended the outfit on US TV last week, and said she didn’t want to be "just another bitch in a dress at an awards show”.

And at a gig in Philadelphia the star apparently asked what people's “big problem” with the outfit was.

“Haven’t they seen me wear leather?” the Metro quotes the star as telling the audience at the Wells Fargo Center. “Next time, I’ll wear a tofu dress and the soy milk police will come after me.”

A number of animal rights groups, included PETA, have accused Lady Gaga of setting a bad example by wearing the dress.

On Thursday (September 16), Franc Fernandez, who designed the outfit, said the singer had told him that it “smelled good”.

He also revealed that he had sourced around 50 pounds of meat from a local butcher to build the outfit.
