Kanye West will be performing at the 2013 Video Music Awards. He will sing his single “BLKK SKKKN HEAD” live at the Barclays Center during the Aug. 25 show.
As MTV points out, this is a pretty big deal in terms of VMAs history. This performance will be West’s seventh at the music awards show, meaning he’ll be tied with Madonna for most times singing on the VMAs stage. West is not up for any awards this year.
The big question for us following this announcement is not where West’s performance in 2013 will rank among his six others, but whether he’ll be bringing his baby mama along to the VMAs with him. Kim Kardashian only just made her first post-baby appearance last week, though she didn’t choose to reveal her post-pregnancy body. It’s not much of a stretch to assume she’s waiting for an event like the VMAs red carpet to unveil her new slimmed down figure.
As for when their daughter North West will be revealed, your guess is as good as ours.
