Little Monsters, get ready to party because Mama Monster has announced that she will be performing at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. As of right now, the song she will be performing is being kept underwraps (much like the entire album), but chances are that it’s the first single off of ARTPOP which will be released on August 19.
This information might not come as a surprise to some of her biggest fans since Gaga does have some kind of a history with the network’s award show. In 2009, she performed a blood-soaked version of her song, “Paparazzi” while in 2011, she got into full male alter-ego mode by portraying Jo Calderone not only during her performance of “You & I,” but managed to stay in character throughout the entire show.
And then there was the meat dress incident.
In honor of her comeback (should we really call it that?), MTV Hits, the network’s 24-hour music channel (I know we’re surprised too), will be airing an hour block between 3-4 p.m. ET showing her music videos as well as performances from the past.
For those looking forward to the Video Music Awards, the show will be broadcast live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in New York City on August 25 stating at 9 p.m. on MTV.
