When MTV teased the opening “Bang Bang” number as an “explosive performance,” they most likely weren't anticipating Nicki Minaj’s dress imploding. The former American Idol judge took the stage alongside Ariana Grande and Jessie J to perform their hit single, and just seconds after the trio joined forces, Nicki’s tight dress gave the audience — and viewers at home — more than they probably expected to see.


The 31-year-old singer had just wrapped her performance of “Anaconda” and joined her "Bang Bang" cohorts when everyone noticed her dress was wide open in the front, nearly exposing her lovely lady lumps for all to see. Nicki handled the situation like a pro and immediately grabbed her dress and held it together. Nicki later told The Hollywood Reporter that they "ran out of time getting the dressed zipped up." Mega womp, you guys!

This isn’t the first problem to go down during Nicki’s VMA experience this year. E! Online reports that one of Nicki’s dancers had a minor altercation with a snake during rehearsals. The female dancer was bitten on her left hand by a 6-foot boa constrictor named Rocky. If you’re wondering where the snake was during tonight’s bootylicious performance, you’ll be glad to know the rehearsals went on without Rocky’s help and we're assuming his part was cut from the live show.
