MTV has Katy Perry and Lady Gaga seated next to each other at Sunday's Video Music Awards. The two pop stars have dueling singles out
. Katy's single, "Roar," outsold Gaga's "Applause," by about 2:1 in the first week. We don't expect a cat fight between the two artists at the show as sales for both of them are very strong. Any competition between them reported in the press is probably helping to boost sales of their new hit songs.
Lady Gaga is opening
the show with her new single, "Applause." Katy Perry will also perform her single, "Roar." Katy recently revealed
her gold VMAs microphone with brass knuckles attached on Instagram.
