The 'You & I' singer says her new perfume is all about sex as she launches it in New York.

Lady Gaga officially launched her first fragrance last night in New York City and says she wanted the perfume to be "very sexy' and "a little slutty".

The 'Born This Way' singer flew back to New York City this week after bringing her current world tour over to the UK, and held a launch party for her fragrance, Fame, at the iconic Guggenheim museum yesterday (13th Septmeber).

"I wanted it to be very sexy," Lady Gaga revealed to Access Hollywood at the launch party. "I also wanted it to be a little slutty, I wanted it to have that sort of danger of a really beautiful stripper.

"It's a fragrance for a woman that wants to be taken to bed, certainly," Gaga teased.

The 'You & I' singer also spoke out about being photographed nude by Steven Klein as part of the fragrance's extensive advertising campaign, referring to an image that sees Gaga reclining naked while covered in lots of tiny people.

"It's a nice freeing experience actually, and I think that's what's important about being nude in general, right?" Gaga explained. "You should do it with people that you love and that you trust."

The launch event also saw Lady Gaga get a tattoo inked on the back of her head live on stage, reportedly in honour of her friend Terry Richardson's late mother.

Earlier this week the 'Marry The Night' singer revealed she has shaved the back of her head as a tribute to close friend and photographer Terry Richardson, after his mother passed away recently. 

Lady Gaga is due to return to the UK this weekend ready for her next 'Born This Way Ball' show at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday (15th September).
