Lady Gaga's recent performance on The X Factor has been cleared by broadcasting watchdog Ofcom of breaking UK broadcasting rules.

The singer's pre-watershed appearance lead to 317 complaints being made to Ofcom concerning the flesh coloured underwear worn by the popstar and her backing dancers on the show on October 27. ITV also received around 60 complaints directly. However, The Guardian reports that Ofcom has stated that the complaints were assessed and they came to the conclusion that a full investigation did not need to be made.

At the time a spokesperson for ITV defended Gaga's performance, saying: "We do not believe Lady Gaga's performance was inappropriate for the family audience of the X Factor Results show, which has an established tradition of featuring performances from the biggest music stars. Lady Gaga is well known for her highly individual performance style."

Lady Gaga recently announced plans to tour her new album 'ARTPOP' in North America next spring and summer. 'ARTPOP' is Lady Gaga's third studio album and was released on November 6, with the LP subsequently becoming her third release to chart at Number One on the Official UK Albums Chart.
