Little monsters on Twitter late Saturday night had a huge scare when a rumor of a Lady Gaga VMA rehearsal accident made the rounds on the social media website.
"BREAKING: #LadyGaga rushed to the ER after #VMA rehearsal accident. Gaga is said to be 'unconscious'," tweeted "pop pundit" Gregory Littley.
Of course, fans started retweeting it like mad. Littley later backed off from his claim when no one jumped on it. "No one is jumping to respond to the #Gaga news. Therefore I'm thinking this could be FALSE info," he added.
Good thing, too! It's a scary thought -- plus, Mother Monster is scheduled to open the show. We've heard rumors that she'll perform her current single, You and I, as her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone. Her lookalike little sister, Natali, will reportedly go as Gaga. Our celebrity correspondent, Whitney English, heard the same thing.
"Just heard Gaga is dressing as a man this year. Can't say thats as edgy as I'd hoped for," Whitney tweeted from the VMAs black carpet.
Gaga's also tapped to perform in the all-star tribute to Britney Spears.
Of course she'll find a way to top her past VMA appearances, like the blood-drenched Paparazzi performance and last year's meat dress.
Luckily, we don't have to wait much longer to find out.
