Lady Gaga Will Perform Her New ‘ARTPOP’ Single At The VMAs
While we don’t know yet whether she’ll arrive in a meat dress or be carried in by a litter of men inside one of those pods from Alien, we do know one thing: Lady Gaga will perform her new, “yet-to-be-named” single at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
Taking place for the first time at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the VMAs will play host to our first taste of Lady Gaga’s new album, ARTPOP, on August 25th at 9 p.m. ET. Gaga is the first performer announced for the VMAs, with many more to follow, according to a press release.
While Lady Gaga is not nominated for a VMA this year, her 4th LP ARTPOP will no doubt garner nominations for the 2014 awards. The Mother Monster has 13, tied with Peter Gabriel. Both, however, live in the shadow of the Queen of Art Pop, Madonna, who holds the record with 20 VMAs.
ARTPOP will be released Nov. 11, both as an album and as an app. No word on when the aforementioned single will be unleashed outside of the VMAs.
