Paws up, Little Monsters!
After a hip injury in February that derailed her Born This Way Ball Tour
and confined her to a (24-karat gold-plated wheelchair
), Lady Gaga
is slowly making her way back into the spotlight.
The singer will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 25, when she'll perform the new (and still untitled) single from her upcoming fourth studio album, ARTPOP
Gaga had taken the stage briefly for a performance of the "Star Spangled Banner" at New York's Gay Pride Parade Kickoff Rally
on June 28, but the VMA performance will mark Gaga's official return.
No word yet on what the performance will entail, but considering that previous VMA appearances included her gender-bending turn as "Jo Calderone" and a blood-soaked rendition of "Paparazzi," you can bet it will be worth talking about. And possibly include a lot of clean-up afterwards.
