It has been a rough year for Lady Gaga so far, but she looks to close out 2013 by reasserting herself on the pop charts. Back in February she was forced to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball concert tour due to a hip injury that required surgery. Now Lady Gaga has announced the healing went well, and she is ready to hit the stage again. Her first performance will be a month from now kicking off the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. She will sing the first song from her upcoming ARTPOP album project. The single is set to be released August 19, 2013 ahead of the album's release on November 11, 2013. Lady Gaga has a significant history with the MTV Video Music Awards including a blood-soaked performance of "Paparazzi," a gender reversed "You And I," and the infamous meat dress. The MTV Video Music Awards are set to be broadcast live August 25, 2013. Lady Gaga has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and reached the top 10 on the pop singles chart 11 times.
