Prepare for the mother of all openings! Lady Gaga will be opening the Video Music Awards on August 28.
Lady Gaga has confirmed she will open the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. “I’m just so excited, I can’t wait and I’ve been planning it for a week,” Lady Gaga gushed during Thursday night’s MTV First: Lady Gaga event in Times Square.
The way in which the announcement was made was in true Gaga-style. “I have a really big announcement,” Gaga told Sway of MTV. She continued, “But I thought as usual, instead of me announcing it, I’d let the Little Monsters do it for me.”
Fans in Times Square then unfolded a banner that read “Gaga To Open VMAs!!” Check out the video…

“It means the world to me,” Gaga said about opening the 2011 VMAs. “I just feel really blessed every day. I have the most amazing fans.”
It was announced that Gaga would perform and MTV began releasing a series of short promos to get fans pumped. Opening the show, however, is a whole new level of frenzy for her fans.
Besides opening the show, Gaga is up for four awards, including Best Female Video, and Best Video With a Message, Best Art Direction, and Best Choreography.
The MTV Video Music Awards air on Sunday, August 28 on MTV.
