Katy Perry will add even more drama to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. The singer is set to perform her new single, "Roar," live for the first time at the August 25th ceremony. It'll be Perry's first time performing at the VMAs since 2009, when she covered Queen's "We Will Rock You" with Aerosmith's Joe Perry. She also performed her breakout hit "I Kissed a Girl" at the 2008 VMAs.

Perry's next album, Prism, will be out October 22nd. A stable of stars are already confirmed to perform at the 2013 VMAs, which will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn: Kanye West is on the roster, as is Lady Gaga, who will play for the first time since suffering a hip injury earlier this year. Gaga will debut "Applause," the first single off her upcoming album, ARTPOP.
