Lady Gaga has "really great sex".

The 'Dope' singer - who has been dating Taylor Kinney since meeting on the set of her video 'You and I' in July 2012 - never enjoyed intimacy until she began romancing the hunky actor.

Speaking to Miranda Sawyer on the BBC Two's 'The Culture Show', she said: "Because my earlier experiences with sex were quite perverted and scary, terrifying - I felt quite numbed by my experiences and I wanted to escape things. But now I have really great sex.

"In the beginning of my career, I think my transforming myself into other icons gave a sense of sexual freedom.

"There's always an intention behind the sexuality in my performance. But most of the time, I don't particularly find myself to be very sexy actually."

The 27-year-old singer also claimed she heard "voices in her head" as a child and struggles to cope with inner "chaos".

Gaga added: "I would accuse things of happening that people around me didn't notice were happening. And as I got older it started to make me feel sick, and it still makes me feel sick sometimes.

"I've gone through stages of being centred and then being addicted to drugs and alcohol, having difficulty handling the chaos in my mind. Then returning back to the centre."
