Nicki Minaj Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction at 2014 MTV VMAs [PHOTOS + VIDEO]
The ‘Anaconda’ singer’s “whoops!” moment occurred during her performance of ‘Bang Bang’ alongside Jessie J and Ariana Grande — right after her performance of ‘Anaconda.’ While spotlighted during her rap verse, it looked like Nicki’s tight black dress wasn’t fully zipped, causing the singer to hold the material together in front of her cleavage with one hand, using her other hand to cover up her lower stomach area.
But Nicki used the clever hand maneuvers to her advantage, drawing attention to her killer body as she strutted across the stage. And to be honest, we weren’t even so sure that Nicki actually had suffered a wardrobe malfunction at first — the dress could have totally rocked that sexy cut-out shape.
The rapper later admitted it though, revealing that the costume change was so quick in between her performances of ‘Anaconda’ and ‘Bang Bang’ that “we ran out of time getting the dress zipped up” (quote via the Hollywood Reporter).
Watch the entire performance of ‘Bang Bang’ above and check out pictures of Nicki’s wardrobe malfunction below.

Nicki may have been a little taken aback by the wardrobe malfunction, but she certainly didn’t let it stop her, workin’ it up there on stage like the best of ’em.
