Joining other performers like Usher, Ariana Grande and Maroon 5, the raptress is 'looking forward' to performing the new 'Pink Print' cut at the event.
Nicki Minaj has been added to the star-studded list of performers for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards. The raptress is slated to deliver the live performance of "Anaconda", the latest single off her highly-anticipated "The Pink Print" album.
This won't be Minaj's first appearance at the VMAs. The star, who has collected two Moonmen, previously performed during the pre-show in 2010 and joined Alicia Keys for "Girl on Fire" during the 2012 broadcast.
"The VMAs is a pretty big deal, so people go all out for it," Minaj has shared her excitement. "I am very, very excited and looking forward to the performance."
The former "American Idol" judge joins previously-announced performers including Usher, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift and Beyonce Knowles. The latter act will also receive this year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award during the ceremony taking place at The Forum in Inglewood, California, on August 24.
