Well its official (not surprising though) Rihanna is now set to preform at MTV’s 2012 VMA’s. Today the Pop diva announced on her twitter page that she will indeed be hitting the stage this year.
If that’s not enough to make you watch Alicia Keys, Pink, and Green Day just to name a few will also be performing. The VMA’s will air live on September 6th at 8pm ET. The show will also be hosted by funny man Kevin Hart.
Alicia Keys released the artwork for her next album Girl On Fire that she also announced that will be dropping November 27th. After taking a break after having her child I'm sure Mrs. Beatz is ready to get right back in the swing of things. Look for her to drop some new music during her VMA performance September 6th.

Straight from the source, we have the news that Alicia Keys is prepping the upcoming album, Girl On Fire. I'm definitely looking forward to the new sounds it sounds like she'll have in store for us.
I’m in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited!!! I’m ignited!!! I’m like a match to a flame! I’ve had the title of this album in my mind for a long time….It’s been hard to hold it back and now I’m not holding it back anymore! It is called Girl on Fire!!! And that’s exactly how I feel!!! You’ll be learning more about it soon… but let me just say before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage…I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free!!
During the recording process, I mostly stayed in NY but on some cool and memorable occasions, I traveled to different places, and worked with many collaborators, (some old friends, some new). I discovered so many beautiful sounds, and meanings and a lot about the power of a song. I can’t wait to share this album with you. I promise when you hear it, it’s a new me, I gave it my all: powerful, soulful, honesty and heart… With Girl on Fire, I want to move you and surprise you.
