Rock ‘n’ roll is a dangerous business! Just ask Lady Gaga, who spent the better part of this spring laid up in a wheelchair after injuring her hip, resulting in the cancellation of her epic Born This Way tour. The surgery sounded pretty rough, but we didn’t realize just how fearless Mother Monster truly is until she described the gruesome process in a recent interview!
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:
Happy birthday, America! Over the course of your 237 years, many of music’s biggest names—superstars like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna and more!—have paid their respects to your broad stripes and bright stars in their videos. In honor of the 4th of July, we’ve put compiled these moments into what just might go down as the most patriotic GIF Wall in history. Ain’t that America?
