Nicki Minaj's VMAs Performance Is All About Her Butt, And Then A Wardrobe Malfunction

Nicki Minaj's praise of the tush continued at MTV's VMAs with her performance of "Anaconda." Minaj recently released the music video for her single from "The Pink Print," which was met with think-pieces and GIFs.

Her VMAs performance included a green sparkly bikini, a wild faux forrest and some grinding with Avatar-like dancers.


Minaj's was the second performance of the night, and she went on right after Ariana Grande's rendition of "Break Free." Minaj then joined Jessie J and Grande, and together they performed their collaborative single, "Bang Bang." In a hilarious wardrobe malfunction, Minaj didn't get to close her dress in time for "Bang Bang." "We ran out of time getting the dressed zipped up," she later told The Hollywood Reporter. "As long as a nipple didn't come out to play, I'm fine," Minaj wrote on Instagram. But, let's be real: She was still the best thing about the opening.



Sadly, Drake didn't show up for Minaj to grind upon.
