Lady Gaga to Perform at the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards

MuchMusic announced today that Lady Gaga, the musical pop-culture phenom, is the latest performer confirmed to hit the stage at the 2009 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS. Gaga promises to take MMVAs fans on a fashion forward, shock-filled ride, live on Sunday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET, with faint-inducing MMVAs co-hosts the Jonas Brothers. The party gets started with the MMVAs 09 RED CARPET SPECIAL at 8 p.m. ET. Famous for her musical talent, flair for the theatrical, and in-your-face exhibitionism, the GRAMMY®-nominated star has dominated the charts with three No. 1 singles, “Just Dance,” “Poker Face,” and her latest “Love Game.” The countdown to the 2009 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS is on, with additional A-List performer and guest announcements in the coming weeks.

“I’m so delighted to be performing at this year’s MuchMusic Video Awards,” said MMVAs performer Lady Gaga. “Canada feels like a second home to me now, and I’m ready to throw it down for my fans on the MuchMusic stage. Love and Art, Lady Gaga.”

Lady Gaga has taken the world by storm with her debut album The Fame, claiming her place as part of pop music royalty. Strongly influenced by the glam rock of David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, her sophomore hit “Poker Face” is her second digital single to go six times platinum in Canada, the first being “Just Dance”, a feat that has never before been accomplished by any other artist.

Gaga’s love of rock, pop, and theatre has created a larger-than-life persona that includes hot dance tracks, eccentric style, and tongue-and-cheek performances that exude her undeniable sexiness. Dubbed by some as the next Madonna and Princess of Pop, Gaga is a singer-songwriter who fought hard for her chart-topping status. With musical roots in New York’s Lower East Side club scene, Gaga definitely paid her dues.
