The 2013 MTV Music Awards are right around the corner (literally–hello, Brooklyn!) which means it’s time to start unveiling a lineup of live acts that will blow your minds. Lady Gaga has been confirmed as a performer at the August 25 event, ending the drought Little Monsters have been faced with since injury forced Gaga to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball in February. MTV’s own Sway, and a group of enthusiastic fans, announced the news earlier today:

With 13 Moonmen to her name and a penchant for doing the unthinkable, expect big things from Ms. Germanotta come August–particularly with new album ARTPOP coming soon. If you’ve forgotten about Mother Monster’s live act, or merely want to get yourself pumped for next month’s show, take a look at some of her wildest outfits, below.
