Lady Gaga and Kanye West have both confirmed that they'll perform at the MTV Video Music Awards next month. Uh-oh, watch out Taylor Swift.

The 36-year-old rapper will make his seventh onstage appearance at the annual awards when he sings 'Black Skinhead' at the ceremony on August 25, which will air live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, while Gaga will present an award and perform her new single, making one of her first appearances since having hip surgery in February.

The 27-year-old singer, who will release her new album 'ARTPOP' on November 11, sang the national anthem at New York's Gay Pride in June but has been avoiding the public eye since calling off her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour to undergo surgery for a labral tear on her right hip earlier this year, which left her temporarily wheelchair-bound.

In a post on her new website,, she wrote: 'ARTPOP as they pry the single from my bleeding fingers. its a scary thing to revisit those things underneath, the pain in your past. but all I found was raw passion. I thought I was destroyed inside. im just ready to fight. start the music. (Sic)'

As for the awards themselves, Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke lead the way with a total of six nominations each.
