The #VMA2014 Awards was set at an all-time blaze, as celebs congregated for the annual music showdown! Read more below, as Nicki Minaj’s name was definitely trending the entire weekend.
In the midst of the performance madness, Nicki Minaj was consistently surfacing during the awards ceremony, with an alleged staged dress malfunction; not just during the performance, but beforehand at rehearsal, as well. To add more anaconda venom to the wound, during rehearsal, one of Nicki’s dancers was bitten by a live reptile, and had to be rushed to the hospital.
According to TMZ:
Nicki Minaj CLAIMS her dress was unzipped during her performance at the VMAs because she didn’t have enough time to get ready … but that’s BS — she pulled the same stunt during rehearsals.
Eyewitnesses who watched Nicki’s rehearsal Sunday morning tell TMZ … she walked on stage wearing the same dress — unzipped. One eyewitness says it caught her eye because she initially thought Nicki had come out in a robe.
We’re told Nicki was wrapping her arms around the dress in a “weird” sort of way … trying to manipulate it to see how much would be exposed.
And we’re told … the VMAs created a make-shift dressing room right off stage — draped with black sheets — so she would have enough time to change.
In ANACONDA NEWS….
A 6-foot long snake — believed to be an anaconda — bit a dancer during a VMA run-through for Sunday’s show … TMZ had learned.
Nicki Minaj was on stage performing her hit, “Anaconda” when a female dancer was bit by the reptile in front of everyone.
We’re told the dancer has just been taken to the hospital where she’s being treated.
Anacondas are non-venomous snakes but often transmit bacteria that can lead to serious infections.
The snake was removed from the stage in a container.
Sigh. Well, we’re glad that the dancer is ok — it could’ve been worst. Next time, let’s just keep any reptile, lion, alligators, chickens, turkeys; or whatever off the stage! Hopefully, we will get to speak with Nicki about this SHE BY SHEREE dress malfunction.
But, congrats to Nicki on her VMA performances, and for recently breaking Vevo records!
