VMA Virgin Katy Perry

Katy Perry will perform Madonna's 'Like a Virgin' at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (07.09.08).

British comedian Russell Brand - who will host the exclusive Los Angeles ceremony - revealed the 'I Kissed a Girl' singer will perform a version of the song, adding: "There's a lot of virginity and lesbianism going on at the show."

At a press conference yesterday (04.09.08), Russell was joined by Christina Aguilera, who announced she will be performing songs from her upcoming greatest hits album at the ceremony - giving newborn son Max the chance to see his mom on TV for the first time.

Christina, who will debut new track 'Keeps Getting Better', said: "You're going to get a first look and a first listen at my new image and my new sound. The last album, the style and sound was about vintage glam - this one is all about the future.

"This will be his first time Max can watch me perform on television, but only for a little while because he's not really allowed to watch television yet. I'll make an exception for the VMAs."

Russell added: "The VMAs are going to be so great that Christina Aguilera is willing to risk her newborn baby's sight!"

Following the revelation that Britney Spears will be opening the show, Russell hinted exactly what the controversial singer is intending to do at the ceremony.

He said: "She's not serving canapes or doing a bizarre haircut on herself! She's not performing, but she's certainly doing the show in a professional capacity."

It was also confirmed 'Stronger' singer Kanye West will close the show.
