Quick, cover it up! Nicki Minaj came very close to suffering a very revealing nip slip at the 2014 Video Music Awards on Sunday, but was luckily able to avoid the problem. Unfortunately, that meant a pretty awkward performance for the rapper.
The show started out fine, with Ariana Grande opening things up with her new single “Break Free.” From there, Nicki took over, and rapped her controversial tune “Anadconda,” complete with a revealing outfit and a lot of suggestive dance moves.
Jessie J appeared onstage next, and began belting out the trio’s new song “Bang Bang.” She was soon joined by the Nickelodeon star, and eventually Nicki, who apparently didn’t have enough time to change between sets — because she walked on stage clutching the front of her little black dress!
The show must go on, though, and the former American Idol judge completed the performance, albeit a bit awkwardly, with the anxiety and frustration over the wardrobe malfunction showing on her face.
She took the stage once again later in the night, this time, with Usher…and no unmentionables showing!
