Lady Gaga has revealed she'll be the first act to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards in LA later this month.

The gig revelation comes just days after Lady gaga unveiled her new 'You And I' music video for the next single.

"It means the world to me," Gaga added.

"I just feel really blessed every day. I have the most amazing fans."

Other names lined up to perform at the event on 28th August include the 'Someone Like You' star Adele and 'The Lazy Song' singer Bruno Mars.
