Remember when Nicki Minaj appeared in the VMA stage holding together her black dress while performing Bang Bang with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, well Nicki finally has an explanation for the flub. Nicki stopped by Ellen and dished on her butt naked experience.”I had I don’t know about 40-50 seconds to change from the “Anaconda” outfit into the “Bang Bang” outfit.”
She continued, “Originally I was just going to have a skirt that just wrapped around the green but the I realized that Jessie and Ariana were wearing black and white I didn’t want ruin the shot with me wearing a green bra and them wearing black and white. I was like I have to put on a black dress really quickly and sure enough we didn’t have a real quick-change right there. So it was literally my whole team just standing there holding curtains around me and it was pitch black. I couldn’t see anything and right before it was time for me to walk out they went to zip it up… And right there I thought I died. I didn’t have any underwear on. No underwear. No bra, because I had just taken off the Anaconda outfit. So I was butt ass naked…I don’t know.”
Some speculated that the malfunction was planned..what do you think?
On a side note, Nicki performed Anaconda at the Fashion Ricks show and she was just a little disappointed CBS did not air part of the routine but good news she will be dropping The Pinkprint on November 24th.
“My darlingz, I wish you could’ve seen the choreography on the 2nd verse of ANACONDA last night. It was absolutely divine. CBS decided not to show it. Had they told us this before, we would have changed the choreo so that you guys could see the full performance from beginning to end. They already had you tuned in tho. Artists spend so much of their own money, time and passion to deliver their fans great performances. But ultimately, our art usually falls into the hands of people who care nothing about our art and creativity. Promise you’ll get to see this new choreo soon. Love uuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!! 11.24 ~ The Pinkprint “
