VMAs 2013: Is Kim Kardashian coming? Is Katy Perry dateless?

Kim's baby daddy, Kanye West, is set to perform his single "BLKK SKKKN HEAD" at the VMAs Sunday (Aug. 25). And It would seem Kanye is definitely bringing a plus-one to Barclays Center in Brooklyn. N.Y., as seating charts photographed during show prep indicate an empty seat next to Yeezy's.

Production certainly isn't saving that spot for a random seat-filler. So, who's hoping the extra seat is for Nori's new mommy?

The "Roar" singer won't be bringing her on-again, off-again boyfriend and duet partner, John Mayer, as he has a concert scheduled in Burgettstown, Pa. But Perry usually brings her cute little granny, Ann Hudson, along to her dateless red carpets. Maybe the annual MTV awards show, known for its chaos and outrageous moments, is just a little too wild for grandma.

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards air Sunday (Aug. 25) at 9 p.m.
