MTV gives Gaga first gig since surgery

26 July 2013, 15:35

Los Angeles - Pop star Lady Gaga will debut new music at the MTV Video Music Awards in August in her first performance following hip surgery, the network said on Thursday.

Grammy-winning Lady Gaga, 27, will perform her first single from her upcoming new album ARTPOP, which is scheduled to be released in November. The new single will be released on 19 August, ahead of the VMA show on 25 August.

The singer, who was named the top-earning musician under 30 by Forbes with earnings of an estimated $80m in the past year, was forced to cancel part of her world tour earlier this year to undergo hip surgery.

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is known for her lavish and often controversial televised performances.

At the 2010 MTV VMA show, she donned a dress made out of raw beef to protest the US military's "don't-ask-don't-tell" policy for gay service members.
