Lady Gaga strips off in a trailer for her performance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, which takes place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on August 28.

In the 45-second teaser video, which you can view below, the ‘Born This Way’ singer plays her new single ‘You And I’ on a piano, while taking off her bra at the same time.

Shot in black and white, the trailer also features a voiceover from Gaga, during which she says:

Sometimes I’m really happy when I write music; sometimes I’m really angry, sometimes I’m really drunk, or sometimes I’m super-sober. You never really know why, if or how you write music.

The ceremony will be broadcast on August 29 in the UK and will see performances from Lady Gaga, Adele and Bruno Mars.

Katy Perry, Adele and Kanye West lead the field in this year’s nominations.

Perry has nine nods while Adele has seven nominations for her single ‘Rolling In The Deep’. Lady Gaga, Eminem and Beyonce are also up for three awards each respectively, reports

Elsewhere, Foster The People are also up for two nominations – Best Rock Video and Best New Artist for the video for their single ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.
