Kanye West set to perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

Every year the MTV Video Music Awards bring the year’s hottest acts together for one night of celebrities, awards, live performances and truly memorable moments.

This year, MTV welcomes back their favorite/least favorite live performer Kanye West to the award show where he’ll perform “Black Skinhead"–the single off of his latest, critically acclaimed album, Yeezus. This will be West’s seventh time performing at the VMAs, tying with Madonna for most performances ever at the MTV award show.

So far, the only other confirmed VMAs performance is Lady Gaga; whose highly anticipated album, ARTPOP, will be released on November 11.

Although Kanye has delivered amazing performance after amazing performance every time, the jokes of one Taylor Swift rant will never end.

The MTV VMAs will air Sunday, August 25 at 9 p.m. and will take place at the Barclay Center.
