Lady Gaga - with help from some of her Little Monsters -- has announced she'll be opening this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

"I have a really big announcement," The Edge Of Glory singer said, flanked by hundreds of fans in New York's Times Square Thursday. "But I thought as usual, instead of me announcing it, I'd let the Little Monsters do it for me."

At that point, her fans unfurled a huge banner that read: "GAGA TO OPEN VMAs!!!"

"It means the world to me," Gaga, 25, said of the gig. "I just feel really blessed every day. I have the most amazing fans."

Gaga won eight awards at last year's VMAs, the event she famously wore a dress made of meat to.

This year, she's up for four awards, including Best Female Video and Best Video With a Message for Born This Way; and Best Art Direction and Best Choreography for Judas.


The MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast on MTV and from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on Sunday, August 28 at 9/8c.
