Katy Perry to Perform 'Roar' at VMAs
Katy Perry is bringing her "Roar" to Brooklyn.
MTV today announced that the pop star will perform her just released single for the very first time during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
The show will be beamed live from the Barclays Center on Aug. 25.
As a lead-up to the highly touted bow, MTV Hits, the network's 24-hour music channel, will feature an hour-long block of Perry performances and music videos on Aug. 13.
The singer is certainly no stranger to the VMAs, having four won Moonmen in recent years, including video of the year for the song “Firework.” Perry also met her now-ex-husband, Russell Brand, at the 2009 show, which was held in New York City.
Perry's highly anticipated third album, Prism, is scheduled for release on Oct. 22.
