At tonight's VMAs, Vampire Weekend won't be the only act repping the Light Blue. Kate Eberstadt, CC '14, will join pop icon Lady Gaga in her opening performance of her new hit, "Applause" (music video below).
Eberstadt got the gig through her summer residency at the Watermill Center International Program, where she performed as a live body paint model under the direction of the avant-garde Bob Wilson. Wilson has been collaborating with Lady Gaga on her upcoming album, "ARTPOP," and Eberstadt was asked to be part of Gaga's performance tonight. The performance of "Applause" is expected to have a very experimental feel.
The VMAs will be on MTV at 9 p.m. tonight.
