In the vein of exciting new announcement stunts, MTV has announced that Kanye will perform at the 2013 VMAs. To support the announcement, the network held a photo shoot at the Brooklyn Bridge and set up a millieu of croissants, a copy of Yeezus (or a CD red taped to look like it) and their signature moon man with this message: “BREAKING! Kanye West to perform at the 2013 #VMAs 8/25 at @barclayscenter! Don’t worry Ye, we got your damn croissants.”

Now that’s how to treat a God. The show will begin at 9 p.m. on August 25 at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center. The last time ‘Ye performed at the VMAs was back in 2011 to perform “Otis” Watch the Throne collaborator Jay Z. According to MTV’s website Kanye will be performing “Black Skinhead.” This will be his seventh time performing at the awards show including his first time back in 2004.
