MTV Video Music Awards 2014: Nicki Minaj has wardrobe malfunction

Nicki Minaj hit several snags this year during the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. One of the most notable was the wardrobe malfunction that plagued Nicki through a performance with Jessie J and Ariana Grande at the beginning of the awards show. According to E! News on Monday, Nicki Minaj could have flashed a whole lot of cleavage had she not caught her dress and held on for dear life.

Nicki Minaj was set to perform her hit single "Anaconda" live on stage with real snakes for the MTV Video Music Awards. That idea was nixed by MTV after one of Nicki's backup dancers was bit by the snake she was handling. Although the dancer was present for the performance, the snake was not.

As if things couldn't get any worse for the hit rapper, Nicki hit another snag after performing the snakeless "Anaconda." Per her own report, Nicki ran out of time switching costumes and when she ran out on stage to perform with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, the front of her tiny black dress was gaping open.

Nicki held her dress closed during the performance of "Bang Bang" and after the song she yelled back to reporters at the side stage about her wardrobe malfunction. Minaj addressed the black dress slip up on Instagram on Monday saying, "God is good. As long as a nipple didn't come out to play, I'm fine."

On another Instagram pic related to the wardrobe malfunction, Nicki wrote, "Lol. Who did this? I know that's what the boyz wanted but hell naw!!!!!!! I held on to that dress for DEAR LIFE!!! There was no bra and no panties to save me. Took real commitment." The meme in question was a play on the hit animation "Frozen" and the song, "Let It Go." Surely you can figure out what they wanted her to let go.
