Lady Gaga to Perform New Single at MTV VMAs

Lady Gaga

Mother Monster is bringing her ball to Brooklyn. Lady Gaga will perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards next month.

MTV has announced the pop superstar as the first performer for the 30th annual show, which airs live on August 25 at 9 p.m. EST from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

She will perform her new single, which is set for release on August 19. The song is rumored to be titled “Applause” after Gaga’s makeup artist posted an image of Gaga holding a framed photo with the word “Applause” above it.

Her new album ARTPOP is due November 11.

Gaga last performed at the VMAs in 2011 as her male alter ego Jo Calderone and soaked the stage in blood while hanging from the ceiling in 2009.

Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the nominations for this year’s awards with six apiece.

    Can’t wait for her to slay again. The pop scene is dry and boring without Gaga.

    Not being a hater, Gaga got talent and theres no denying but I am NOT here for her or this performance. Shes beyond pretentious and shes only made a name for herself by doing so therefore its now just coming across as tacky.

    Madonna, while always pushed limits, was still marketable as being a human being. Yes she had her outfits and boundary pushing videos and whatnot but she still was relatable and didn’t feel as though she had to be straight out of a cartoon to remain relevance.

    I’m excited for ArtPop as long as her campaign doesn’t focus on how amazing and GR0UNBR3@K1Ng it is.
