Little Monsters, listen up! Those of you who've been jonesing for new music from Lady Gaga are in luck, because Mama Monster herself will debut the lead-off single from her upcoming album "ARTPOP" on the MTV Video Music Awards.

The 2013 VMAs will air August 25 at 8:00 (CT) on MTV, and will originate from Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY.

"'ARTPOP' as they pry the single from my bleeding fingers," Gaga wrote on her fan site earlier this week. "It's a scary thing to revisit those things underneath, the pain in your past. But all I found was raw passion. I thought I was destroyed inside. I'm just ready to fight. Start the music."

The album "ARTPOP" is set for release in November.
