Nicki minage wardrobe malfunction at 2014 mtv video music awards

*If you saw the opening of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night you saw Nicki Minaj kick thing off with a hella bang, but ended up going out real subdued ironically on a song called “Bang Bang.”

Yep, just like her “Anaconda” video, Nicki and her dancers shook things up with raunchy booty action fo’ days. In fact, if Miley Cyrus was watching, she got a taste of what real twerking looks like with a requisite butt to match.

But we digress.

Our point is that after Nicki did her super expressive booty thing on “Anaconda,” she apparently suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her costume change to a little black dress. It left her awkwardly clutching the front of her dress with a big rip in it during “Bang Bang” with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, ending what was otherwise an attention getting opening performance, on a strange note.
