MTV have announced that Kanye West
will perform Black Skinhead
from his new album Yeezus
at the Video Music Awards on the 25 August.
It will be the seventh time Kanye
has performed at the annual awards ceremony. Madonna
is the only other artist to have done so as many times.
is also set to debut her new single Applause
at the event, ahead of the release of her new album ARTPOP
on the 11 November.
The VMAs are not just about the music though. This years ceremony is bound to be as eventful as ever. Back in 2010 Gaga
wore the infamous meat dress and in 2009 Kanye West stormed the stage to interrupt Taylor Swifts Best Female Video acceptance speech to argue that Beyoncé
should have won instead. Extraordinary. Expect more outrageous fashion moments and bizarre celebrity antics this year.
Team ELLE will be rooting for ELLEs June cover star Miley Cyrus
who is up for three awards and Justin Timberlake
- because hes lovely - and leads the nominations with six (were pretty sure were backing a winner there).
The 2013 MTV Video Awards will be shown on MTV from 8pm on Monday August 26.
