Today I am very pleased to announce that Barbie herself, Nicki Minaj, will make her first solo VMA performance at the August 24 event, where she will perform her latest single Anaconda, which was released on August 4. The song serves as the third single from her upcoming third studio album The Pink Print, and samples Sir-Mix-a-Lot‘s hit song Baby Got Back, which I’m sure will get the people going. Nicki has earned two Moonmen so far in her career: one in 2011 for Best Hip-Hop Video for Super Bass and in 2012 for Best Female Video with Starships.

Though this marks her first solo performance, she has performed alongside Alicia Keys when they debuted Girl on Fire in 2012, and she also performed at the VMA pre-show in 2010.

She now joins previously announced performers Usher, Maroon 5Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora,  Ariana Grande and 5 Seconds of Summer. Beyonce will also be performing, and will be the recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

The VMAs will be broadcast from Inglewood, California’s renovated venue The Forum on Sunday, August 24, at 9 p.m. EST on MTV. Thoughts?
