The Mother Monster has spoken! In a recent visit to NYC for MTV News with Sway, Lady Gaga announced live in front of the fan-packed streets of Times Square that she will be opening the show at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
No word on what song (or songs) she'll perform, but it's guaranteed to set the mood for the rest of the night. Given Gaga's avante garde out-of-this-world performances that she's known for, not to mention the VMA's history of past ground-breaking performances (see: Britney Spears circa 2001), we can't wait to see what she brings both visually and musically.
Peep video of the announcement below:
