Jay-Z and Lady Gaga Added to 2009 VMAs

Jay-Z and Lady Gaga

Jay-Z and Lady Gaga are the latest artists set to perform at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

The rapper and nine-time VMA nominee join previously announced performers Pink, Taylor Swift, Green Day, and Muse. Jay-Z, nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Male Video, will perform a song off The Blueprint 3, while Gaga will perform one of her chart-topping hits.

“I’m simply gutted to be both a performer and nominee at the 2009 VMAs,” said Gaga. “In fact, I’m so happy, I could die.”

Nelly Furtado, Katy Perry, and Ne-Yo are among the presenters at the 26th annual show, which airs live from New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on September 13 at 9 p.m.

    why do we give gaga so much time on black blogs don’t she have enough white blogs kissing her ass.
    Only beyonce & Rihanna as black artist get mention on white blogs. just use the blog to promote black artist ,because they don’t have much outlet to promote themselves.


  6. DJ Triumph

    should be a good show.


  7. MaZ

    I wanna see Whitney and Beyoncé perform!

    Jay-Z sucks. Death of Autotune was a flop. I wanted Flo Rida or Soulja Boy too perform.

    Malcolm race shouldn’t even be an issue here! Why should it matter whether a person be White, Black, Asian, etc. to be posted here? That’s such a bleak comment to make, it’s just plain stupidity/ignorance! Race should not even be questioned when it comes to posting on blogs regardless of who it’s so say “aimed” at. I commend Rap-Up for being a blog that posts artists of all races which is really great, diversity should be embraced.

    Dear Malcolm,

    Music should cross ALL races. Regardless of what/who other blogs MAY or MAY NOT promote, Rap-Up deserves it’s props because this blog includes all the hottest acts, no matter the person’s race. Kudos to Rap-Up for being an equal opportunity blog.:)


  14. Nick

    Amen to what BP86 just said, I couldn’t agree with you more.


  15. Jay

    @ Vaun Jay most likely will perform Run This Town it would make since.

    and I just knew Lady Gaga would perform! I wonder what song she’s gonna do She has so many hits.

    I can’t wait for Nelly Furtado’s english album too!

    and maan I wish Ciara and Justin would perform :(

    Beyonce should do Sweet Dreams and hopefully Kanye and Mariah should do her next single
