Katy Perry vs. Lady Gaga

The 'California Gurl' and 'Mother Monster' will go head to head for a brand new MTV award.

Katy will take on Gaga for the Best Video With A Message award, a brand new addition to the MTV VMAs.

The idea behind the award is to support artists who stand up for key issues and empower their fans through their music videos.

Lady Gaga's Born This Way has been chosen for promoting a "world free from prejudice, judgment and self-doubt" and Firework by Katy Perry has been selected for "celebrating the spark and originality in all of us".

Other nominees include Pink's Perfect and Rihanna and Eminem's Love The Way You Lie.

The MTV VMAs take place on Sunday 28th August in Los Angeles.
