Lady Gaga to perform at 2013 MTV VMAs

Mother Monster is back!

MTV announced Thursday that Lady Gaga will take the stage at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to perform the first single from her highly anticipated album, ARTPOP.

The 27-year-old singer is the first artist revealed to be performing on the upcoming awards show, which airs Sunday, August 25th.

Gaga has a rich history of making headlines at the MTV VMAs. Let’s see – there was that infamous meat dress, a daring blood-soaked performance, and a date named Kermit the Frog, to name a few examples. In 2011, she memorably transformed into her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone, by dressing in drag. Gaga also has a whopping 13 VMA Moonmen to her name.

There’s no telling what the shocking songstress will bring to 2013 s show.

Mother Monster has laid low on the performance front since undergoing hip surgery in February, although she did belt out a kick-ass rendition of “The National Anthem” at New York Pride last month. Gaga recently announced that her next album, ARTPOP, will drop November 11th.

One person who might not be too excited for the “Born This Way” singer’s return? Lana Del Rey. A demo for Lana’s four year old track, “So Legit,” just leaked and it’s chock-full of Gaga hatin.’

Personally, we can’t wait to see what Lady Gaga has got up her couture sleeve. Viva VMAs, Little Monsters!

Well, way to burst our hopes and dreams for what a Lady Gaga and Rihanna duet could sound like, Lady Gaga.

Earlier this week, Mother Monster appeared on KIIS-FM Los Angeles to talk about all things ARTPOP.

When a fan asked if Rihanna had a special appearance on the album, Gaga said it’s simply not true.

“I mean, it’s a rumor I guess. I guess it’s a good rumor. I mean, I like Rihanna,” she said.

“Rihanna’s wonderful and I always like hanging out with her.”

Gaga’s comments come just weeks after RiRi posted the following on Twitter:

Just left the studio… Recorded a #monster hook for one of my favorite artists! And that’s all I can give you… #NavyShit

ARTPOP, Gaga’s highly anticipated third studio album, drops Nov. 11.

Listen to her full interview with KIIS-FM, below.

Little Monsters around the world still don’t know the name of Lady Gaga‘s first single, but thanks to a Twitter post by Mother Monster herself on Friday, we’re one step closer to the big reveal.

In her first tweet since February (yep), Gaga took the opportunity to share the cover art for her first single from the highly anticipated ARTPOP.

The nude image – covered at the appropriate parts so it’s still SFW – continues the theme that’s been teasing fans in recent weeks, from the image accompanying her album announcement to her V Magazine sneak peek.

According to Gaga, the track will arrive Aug. 19. For those keeping track, that’s six days before the singer will perform the same track at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

ARTPOP drops Nov. 11, with pre-orders through a special app available on Sept. 1.
