A day after the Video Music Awards, fans are still battling over the big story.
Was Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction staged or a real accident?
People close to the action say it wasn’t planned, but it wasn’t entirely unexpected either, mostly because she couldn’t manage to get the dress zipped on several tries in dress rehearsal.
That’s not the only thing that went wrong at dress rehearsal. A boa constrictor that was part of the “Anaconda” number bit one of Nicki’s dancers.
Too bad the boa constrictor wasn’t on stage when the wardrobe malfunction happened – he could have held the dress together for Nicki.
Nicki told the folks in the press, “It felt amazing to open the show.” And it was even more amazing that she was able to keep her dress closed.
And in case you’re still undecided on staged-or-not-staged, take a look at the dress’s proper function in the press room afterwards. It certainly put much more of Nicki on display than the malfunction did.
