The MTV Video Music Awards will open with a "Bang."
Grande and Minaj will also perform separately during the VMAs, to air live from the Forum in Inglewood, California.
Eminem is also nominated for seven moonmen.
Swift released her new song “Shake It Off” earlier this week and announced that her upcoming album “1989" will be released this October. The singer said during a live stream that “1989” will be her “first documented, official pop album.” Swift said she was inspired to write “Shake” after discovering that “people can say whatever they want about us, at any time. The only thing we can control is our reaction to that.”
Meanwhile, Minaj, who recently released a new single, "Anaconda," told MTV earlier this month that her new album, titled “The Pink Print,” will be released “in the fourth quarter of the year.”
“Sonically I think the album sounds so amazing,” she said. “And there are so many surprises on the album. I had [rapper] Drake come by the studio the other day and he was like ‘Oh my God, you’re talking about new stuff, I’m so proud of you.’ And that’s what I’m most excited about. I’m speaking about new things on this album. I’m excited I’m not allowing anyone else to define what the album is going to be.”
