Already set to be a momentous occasion thanks to a return by Lady Gaga, a Brooklyn setting, and the debut of special edition “Moonman” trophies designed by KAWS, the 2013 edition of the MTV Video Music Awards will see Kanye West performing for a record-tying seventh time. Announced today by the network on the Brooklyn Bridge, Yeezy will look to once again steal the show as he performs the Yeezus track “Black Skinhead.” West was notably absent from 2012′s VMAs after performing Watch The Throne‘s “Otis” alongside Jay Z in 2011 and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy‘s “Runaway” with Pusha-T in 2010.
