Lady Gaga stopped by MTV this week, to make a very special announcement. She revealed, with the help of her fans, she'll be the opening performance at the 2011 Video Music Awards on August 28th.

Gaga's appearance on MTV Thursday evening was originally going to be the debut of her video "Yoü and I," the fourth single off her album "Born This Way," but after a version was leaked early, Gaga tweeted it to her fans Tuesday afternoon. In addition to the television premiere of the video, Gaga shared the exciting news that her performance on the VMA's would open the show and undoubtedly be something spectacular, saying, "I've been planning it for weeks now, so I'm so excited."

While Mother Monster chatted with MTV's Sway, she revealed some of her favorite memories of the network from when she was a kid. She recalled watching the daily countdown show, "Total Request Live," everyday, voting for Britney Spears' videos and even occasionally standing amongst the many adoring fans on the street in front of the MTV studios hoping to catch a glimpse of some of her idols.
