Lady Gaga wore her most batty costume ever for an appearance on Japanese TV.

The star donned a pair of plastic batwing shoulders and a lace cat suit as she appeared on TV Asahi's Music Station variety show.

It came as she broke YouTube records, with her channel becoming the first to record the one billion viewers. The popularity of hits such as Telephone and Poker Face have pushed her above channels such as The Twilight Saga at 980 million views.

Gaga said it was important to her to find individual fashions from the countries she performs in.

'The most important thing for me is to be supporting young designers and fashion,' she said.

'When we designed the Monster Ball all the clothes we are using were designed by young designers - and of course it's a strong memorable image for the fans.'

Gaga is in the middle of Far East dates on her Monster Ball tour. After performing twice in Osaka the star will now perform three dates in Tokyo.
