Lady Gaga has claimed that having hip surgery has improved her dancing.

The singer had to cancel dates earlier this year due to the chronic pain she was experiencing and had to undergo surgery.

Speaking to Kiss FM she explained : "They actually resculpted my right hip. I have better rotation now. I'm actually a better dancer now than I was before!''

The singer is due to perform at the upcoming MTV VMAs of which she said "I don't want to give too much away but it is the most physically challenging performance I've done, ever.

"We've been rehearsing for a very long time, I've been rehearsing every day until my feet bleed. I'm so excited, I can't wait, you can't imagine how it felt for me to be away from the stage."

The VMAs take place this coming Sunday night and Gaga will be opening the show.
