Lady Gaga will make her live comeback at this year's MTV Music Video Awards.

The singer has not played live since she was forced to cancel 21 dates on her Born This Way world tour after suffering a hip injury. According to MTV, the singer will perform the first single from her new album 'ARTPOP', which is due for release on November 11. The VMAs will take place in New York at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on August 25 and will be broadcast live at 9pm. Gaga is the first name to announce a performance at the awards show and MTV says additional performers will be announced soon.

Yesterday, Gaga teased details of her new single by posting a photo on her Little Monsters social networking site working on what appears to the artwork for her forthcoming single, which will be released on August 19. The title of the drawing is 'Applause' indicating that that is also the title of single.

Gaga also posted an image on Little Monsters – which is a snapshot of a page from a notebook which appears to be lyrics. "Documented this album/app 'ARTPOP' project in a series of notes and books, with visual ideas and sketches throughout," the caption reads. "I take this book everywhere." The words in the notebook, which feature on a page containing stick-people and bizarre looking figures, read: "If only fame had an IV / Baby could I bear / Being away from you / I found the vein, put it in here."

Earlier this month (July 12), Gaga revealed that 'ARTPOP' will be released as part of an app on November 11. According to the statement, "the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion and technology with a new interactive worldwide community".
