Lady Gaga Opens VMAs with ‘Applause’

Lady Gaga opened the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards with a rip-roaring set. Mother Monster performed her new ARTPOP single “Applause” for the first time at Sunday’s show.

She changed clothes and wigs multiple times—from a nun’s white outfit to a seashell bikini—while recreating looks from the artsy music video.
