Pink to debut new song at MTV VMAs

2012-08-10 21:03
Los Angeles - Pink will perform a new song at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).

The So What hitmaker has been added to the line-up of guest performers which also includes Alicia Keys and One Direction and will debut a track from her forthcoming sixth album The Truth About Love.

Pink says performing at the awards is "extra special" as she was banned from watching music channels when she was younger.

She said: "Being a part of the VMAs for me is extra special because my mom never let me used to watch MTV as a little girl."

'Quite ironic'

She added: "I would watch it anyway but she would also try and ground me but then I would just sneak out my window and go to someone's house that had MTV. So to be on MTV is quite ironic."

This will mark the third time Pink has performed at the awards and she says it is a ceremony she always enjoys.

She said: "It's always one of the more enjoyable shows because it's relaxed and it's kind of rock 'n' roll and unpredictable and everyone is having a good time."

The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards take place at Los Angeles' Staples Centre on Thursday, 6 September.
