Bottoms up! Lady Gaga goes head first into a meat grinder on-stage during her Born This Way Ball

Lady Gaga recently hit back at criticism she's gotten 'meatier' after putting on 25lbs in recent months.

And what better way to make light of the issue than to jump head first into a meat grinder on-stage during her Born This Way ball.

Taking to the stage in Antwerp for the Belgium leg of her world tour over the weekend, the singer ended up upside down as she was lowered into a giant meat-grinder.

The use of the meat grinder and the meat corset she wears on-stage symbolises women being treated like meat by some aspects of society.

The segment is an homage to the controversial 1978 cover of Hustler magazine, which saw a woman's legs stuck out of a meat-grinder.

After singing her track Americano, Gaga told the audience: 'In 1970, women would no longer be treated like meat. On the cover of Hustler magazine or at the Born This Way Ball, meat is precisely how we treat them.'

As well as the series of half-naked images, Ms Gaga wrote: 'Today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. To Inspire Bravery. And BREED some m$therf**king COMPASSION.

'My mother and I created the BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION for one reason: "to inspire bravery."

'This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your "perceived flaws," as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous.'

Lady Gaga recently said she's happier than ever with her body, especially because boyfriend Taylor Kinney is a huge fan of her new fuller figure.

Writing on her blog, she said: 'My boyfriend prefers me curvier.

'When I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks. I'm happy. Happier then I've ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. This is who I am. And I am proud at any size.'
