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.

    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.:)

    @ 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
