This year’s overnight pop icon success story, Lady Gaga says she will wow you at this year’s MTV VMAs in New York. “I know it will [be a defining moment,” Gaga says of her upcoming VMA performance. “I sort of have this philosophy about things: there’s never a reason to do something unless it’s going to be memorable, unless it’s going to change things, unless it’s going to inspire a movement. With the song and with the performance, I hope to say something very grave about fame and the price of it.” Them’s some big shoes to foist yourself into, my dear!

Especially since the last memorable thing to come out of the VMAs was the Madonna-Britney-Christina kiss-off. Now, we certainly don’t doubt your ability to wow a crowd, but you’re looking to inspire a movement? That’s only possible if you perform your Michael Bolton duet. With Michael Bolton with you on stage. And Madonna singing back up.

But let the record show: We’ll be watching — and fully expect La Gaga to make magic.
